I am trying to migrate a Windows 10 installation on to a Crucial BX100. I've used Acronis True Image to clone the HDD on to the SSD.
When I boot from the SSD (HDD connected) Win10 loads up to the desktop, but then the screen flickers and it does not allow any input.
When I boot from the SSD (HDD disconnected) Windows shows the initial loading screen, but does not proceed to user login and screen goes black.
When I boot from the HDD (SSD connected) everything goes fine, I can use the PC and the SSD and its files are visible.
What am I missing to correctly replace the HDD with the new disk?
Thanks in advance,

Do you have the appropriate build of Acronis for Windows 10? https://kb.acronis.com/content/56196

Thank you for your insight, In fact, the key that came with my SSD was for Acronis True Image HD 2014, which it seems is not Windows 10-compatible. AFAIK, cloning feature is not available in the Acronis True Image HD 2015 trial version, so I checked for other solutions.
I managed to solve the problem using:
- Clone using EaseUS Todo Backup
- Download Win10 ISO and create bootable DVD
- Disconnect HDD
- Repair installation using the DVD
