    After cloning my primary HD with the freeware version of XXClone, the secondary HD will no longer boot up. I'm running Vista Home Premium for both OSes (one for everyday use, the other for emergencies).
    Settings used in XXClone:
    Operation Mode: "Back up the entire volume by copying all files from scratch"
    Boot Up Settings: "Make Bootable" and "Add Test Boot".

    If there is any other information that would help resolve this problem, let me know and thanks in advance.

    1. Restart PC and press F2 or F8 to enter BIOS settings.
    2. In the Boot option, select new HDD/SSD as the new boot drive and save all the changes.
    3. Exit BIOS and restart the computer, you should be able to see Windows 10 running on your new disk without any problems
