SSD Upgrade

Hey Green PC Gamers,

I recently upgraded my Precision Tower 5810 from an HDD to Samsung 860 Pro 1TB SSD. I was able to clone the OS using Acronis but whenever I boot it up it games an INVALID PARTITION TABLE ERROR but I just hit ESC and it goes on to boot normally. I updated the BIOS which I thought would help but still gives me that error.

Current build Precision Tower 5810

Samsung 860 Pro SSD

32 GB of Ram

GTX 1650 Super

    However I always advise against cloning boot disk. If you don't have a ton of saved files on it reload windows as a fresh install. Delete all the partitions during the install. There are plenty of guides on doing so. Make sure your evo is the only attached disk during install other than your installation media. And you should still have your hdd that has all your old info on it if you want to pop that in later and transfer files. If you do this please make sure settings in the bios are set to uefi, ahci, secure boot off and do not allow legacy option rom. You do those changes before you try to install windows. If you need help making bootable media or info on installation let me know.
