The NVMe is not dead. The message is •device not migrated”.
Other than hard work, BIOS recognize Gigabyte stick but doesn’t boot if you cut off HDD. Then the computer goes dead and you need to fiddle a lot till you can restart from HDD.
At that point , if you start again the process it gives you the same results.
Kind of odd but, maybe, something to do with BIOS not recognizing NVMe.
By the way I cloned HDD in GPT and all stuff the right way, as I allways did successfully but this one. Did it three times at no avail.
