Cloning HDD to SSD OneKey Recovery

hi all, recently upgraded an old's laptop hdd to ssd (crucial bx500 120gb)

downloaded the crucial software and cloned my system, but when i replaced the hdd with ssd i was unable to boot because of some OneKey Recovery issue: "The program cannot restore the system partition because its structure is incorrect.you may have to recreate the partition to continue."

I changed the boot mode from UEFI to Legacy and it kind of solved the problem, but I read online that UEFI boot mode is much faster than legacy mode (?).

Anyone faced this problem with Lenovo as well? It originally has 2 partition, one for windows and one for the rest.

Tested the read/write speed for the bx500 as well - is it normal to be around 300mb/s despite the advertised 500mb/s?

TIA!

reinstall windows instead of cloning

uefi is faster boot, if u install 64bit windows

bx500 is budget tlc drive. actual speed is 300MBps. advertised 500MBps is not sustainable. mx500 is similar priced and higher end

Also u need to use sata 3 port for ssd

how do I reinstall windows? do i reformat my ssd now and clear everything on it?

and thanks! just wanted to make sure that it's not faulty. i opt-ed for bx500 cos mx500 didnt have the 120gb model

I'm not exactly sure what port is that in the laptop though...i only replaced the HDD

right now my SSD has 2 partition from the cloning, but it's still unable to boot from UEFI mode

Did you set the GPT partition as active partition?
Suggest you use Acronis ver 2016 or higher as only these version support GPT partition.

I'm not sure whether the GPT partition is the active partition tho, will go back and check

I just downloaded the latest Acronis software from Crucial, it should be ver 2016 or higher I suppose?

Are there any other significant difference between UEFI and Legacy boot mode though?
