I'm using this to help a friend with their computer. They have a Toshiba Canvio Portable Hard Drive with this NTI EZ Backup software on it. It automatically runs backup jobs and in the event you have a hard drive failure, you are supposed to be able to drop a new hard drive in, boot to this external and it's supposed to put everything back.
Well, not so much.http://www.nticorp.com/en/us/product/nt ... w-ez-3.asp
I've tried this 3 different times now, a couple of different ways. I've checked, and it's laying down all the proper partitions that were on the original drive. There is an OEM, Restore, and Windows partition. It's Windows 10 now.
Once it's finished all I get is a black screen and a flashing line. I've tried changing it UEFI boot but that doesn't work either. I tried to use AOEMI partition software to clone the original drive and it does fine with the OEM and Restore partitions but the Windows partition it cannot deal with.
I've tried using my Windows 10 boot USB and Startup Repair and that does not work either.
I went through these steps:
Which didn't find Windows installations so I:
bcdedit /export c:\bcdbackup
attrib c:\boot\bcd -h -r -s
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
Which then found my Windows and did the rebuild, but, it still would not start......
Now, I'm lost. The only other alternative would be this backup didn't work.
Thanks in advance
