I have been lucky enough to be given a dozen old PCs to recycle. I have zeroised the HD of the first one, re-installed Windows 10, done all of the latest updates & added all my normal Apps & security measures. Rather than do this another 11 times, once I was completely happy I cloned the HD to an external HD using Easeus Partition Manager.

I've now got PC 2 on my desk and have zeroised the HD using a a bootable Easeus USB and cloned the external HD to the new PC's internal HD ... that worked fine until I rebooted when it said there was no Boot Disk.

I booted into Easeus PM again and I used the Advanced option to make the PC's HD Active ... rebooted into BIOS and the HD is recognised, HOWEVER, when I boot it just tells me there is no bootable media !!!

What am I doing wrong, it should surely be a lot easier than this ?!?!?
