I bought a new hardrive (Seagate Barracuda 4TB) to replace one that is currently failing. I didn't want to have to install all of my programs and loose all my data so I decided to clone my old drive onto my new drive, which worked perfectly. The only problem is that I can't Boot to the new drive without having the old drive installed also.
Basically, I installed my new drive, cloned the old drive onto the new drive, Unplugged the old drive (keeping the new drive connected), and then when I went to boot to the new drive it didn't work as it should.
The computer will turn on properly, and it will give me the "HP" startup window where I can go into BIOS, but then 2 seconds later the screen goes blank and gives me "No Signal" I can still go into BIOS before the no signal but after that all I can do I force shutdown the PC via the power button.
I can start my computer with both the old and new drive installed. I can even look at the files in the new drive. But once the old drive is no longer connected then it gives no signal.
I don't know what to do, so any help is appreciated and I hope this all made sense.
