And the new SSD didn't boot. So I had to boot the Microsoft Windows 8.x Repair DVD (it's on the web) and found my way to a repair my PC. After that, my new SSD booted.
This is not the first time I had to do that and frankly I'm a bit upset with the industry and how they made a mess with UEFI and more.
I'm attempting to upgrade my HDD to a SSD and after following the steps laid out by Samsung of using their software to clone the HDD I'm left with a computer that has no windows explorer. I have an Asus G75VW running windows 8.1. As of right now, doing a fresh install of windows and just reinstalling everything isn't an option because I do not have a windows disk.
