Hi,
I am trying to install a Sandisk SSD to replace a HDD in my Fujitsu Lifebook AH512. I use the repair disk made in Windows 8 to boot, then attempt to restore a system image from an external HDD onto the SSD. However, there is a fail error message 'no drive to restore to'. This is despite the fact that the Sandisk SSD is visible in BIOS.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

David
 
Hi,

There could be a compatibility between the software your using to install Windows 8 in the SSD. My suggestion is to just proceed with a clean install of Windows 8 instead. Create a bootable USB with Windows 8 in it then run it with your SSD.
