I just purchased a Lenovo Ideapad V110-15ISK with the intention of replacing the 500 gb hdd with a 480 gb ssd. I used the Aoemei cloning software but it says the ssd is too small? I haven't installed anything on the 500 gb hdd, I'm just going with it out of the box, so I thought cloneing to something 20 gb smaller shouldn't be an issue. I made the Lenovo partician drive that's 24 gb smaller, to about 3 gb, and it cloned fine, but when I installed it back into the laptop, on start up I get a windows 10 boot error 0xc0000225. I went ahead and made a boot usb and it boots, but then it wants me to install window 10 anew?
I don't know what to do. I love the laptop, I just want it running off of an ssd, and it should be simple, but I spent most of my Sunday on this and the anxiety is getting to me.
I posted this a few min ago but the thread was gone a few min later, if this is improper formatting, please let me know and I'll make the changes, otherwise I'm just trying to get some help here.

Thank you for using the Lenovo forum
Aslong as the partition is all correct it should be all fine as the key is built in to the bios so it should automatically pick up the key.
There are some posts on the forums about this and afew pages online, i advise having a read through some pages and see if theres any little steps on there that may help with this.

there are so many particians, maybe I should try making the main storage partician smaller so the other will stay the same size? I'm guessing that's the only one I can try to modify to get every thing to start up fine? I'll try that today or over the weekend when I'm not so busy with work during the rest of the week.
