How do I upgrade to a larger hard drive on a SVD11213CXB

I have the following:


Computer: Sony Duo 11 - SVD11213CXB

Purchased: Upgraded Hard Drive - Samsung SSD 850 EVO (MZ-M5E500BW)

Cloning Product Purchased: Apricorn AMSW-USB3


I cloned my drive and it said Congratulations. I put it in and it will not boot up. If I put my old drive back in, it boots up with no problem. Put my new drive back in and it will not boot. I am getting the following error code:





Your PC Device need to be repaired

A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed.

Error code: 0xc0000225

You'll need to use recovery tools. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your PC administrator or PC/ Device Manufacturer.


Press the Windows key for UEFI Firmware Settings


When I press the Windows key I get the following options:

1. Recover or maintain your system

2. Start from media (USB device/optical disc)

3. Start from network

4. Start Bios setup

5. Shut down

6. Start Windows

7. Select Language



 Put my old hard drive back in, everything works fine.


I also tried cloning using EaseUS Todo Backup. Same thing happens.


Apricorn that makes the Cloning software tried everything they could and said i would need to contact Sony.


What do i need to do to get this new hard drive working?

I have exactly the same issue with an SCS1312 with original win 8.1 and a new SSD Sandisk 960GB. Mirrored old drive using the EaseUS. Also checked both options MRB and GUID. Same blue page with same error. Please someone from Sony ?
