    Trying to swap my laptops HDD to a SSD.
    Used a cloning tool to 100% clone the drives, but when I go to boot from SSD alone, I get an error "inaccesible boot device"

    Any help?

    What tool did you use and how was the SSD connected to the laptop when you did the cloning ?

    It's important to swap the drives over as soon as the clone is made, booting from the source drive with the clone still connected can mess things up.
