Disk read error occurred - after new SSD...
Posted on 2012-03-19
I have a new Lenovo W520 "born" with a stanard HDD. I started cloning the HDD to an older SSD I had in my old laptop. That all worked fine, but of course I wanted to take advantage of the SATA-3 port in the laptop.
I got the fast Kingston HyperX SSD and cloned my old SSD to the new faster SSD. Sounds like piece of cake, huh? 20 minutes, and the cloning was done. Ready to boot... but no... "Disk read error occurred". I tried once more... and even once more... same result all the time. A very "funny" thing is, that it's booting fine when I placed the SSD in an older laptop... but it won't in my new one.
WHYYYYY???? I'm about to throw the whole junk out of the window... but I better not, since it's at work. :o) I better add, that I'm bound to Windows XP SP3, and my new laptop also has a password to the BIOS, so I can't mess around with that, unless I sell my soul to the devil and make the systemadministrator/IT-department look at it.
And on top of all, now my old SSD won't boot either. That also gives the "Disk read error occurred" message. Oh.. and I don't have the option to enter the BIOS at all (pressing the ThinkVantage button).
Any idea what's wrong??? I scanned the disc for errors... none... Beside... it can boot fine in an old laptop (with no password on BIOS).
I would appreciate any help on this issue... it's so annoying. I looked forward to this super fast SSD... and now no SSD at all... copying a billion files to the original HDD... :-(
I also need to add, that the SSD's works fine from the USB-enclosure...
