Successful Clone with BalenaEtcher, But Windows 11 Won't Boot (Error 0xc000000e)

Hi everyone,

I recently used BalenaEtcher 1.19.21 to clone my Windows 11 23H2 installation from a 512GB NVMe SSD to a new 1TB NVMe SSD. The cloning process completed successfully and was validated, but after restarting my PC, I’m getting the error code 0xc000000e.

I’m not sure how to proceed from here. I haven’t found clear documentation on how to properly clone Windows 11, especially when it comes to ensuring it boots correctly afterwards.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Additional details:

  • BalenaEtcher version: 1.19.21
  • Windows 11 version: 23H2

Note: I have double-checked that the cloned SSD is set as the first boot device in my BIOS.
