I was stop receiving windows update after clone ...
Go to control panel and type windows update and see if it's red or green.. if it's red and say windows update service is not running than you have issue... here is process
To replace possibly malfunctioning manufacturer-specific Serial ATA drivers or a non compatible SATA Driver we need to replace it with Microsoft's MSAHCI or StorAHCI drivers which may have better functionality/compatibility in your system, use the following guide:
1. Enter Device Manager in Windows via either your Control Panel or Computer Management.
2. You should see a category of "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers or Storage Controller driver". Click the 'plus' symbol to the left of this line to expand that category.
3. All manufacturer drivers under this category will appear. For each entry, right click, select 'Update driver software'
4. Then you need select browse my system.
5. Then select pick from list of drivers.
6. Select the "Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller"
7. Then click next and the system will reboot and the driver will be swapped and you can go back in there to confirm that.
I've read FAQs from Micron (the maker of Crucial drives), updated its firmware (which had to be done in DOS, using an ISO image burned to CD to create a bootable CD since Windows won't recognize the drive), downloaded the "Crucial Executive" software (which also failed to see the drive), repeatedly cycled the power on for two hours and off for five minutes to reactivate the firmware (apparently a common problem with Crucial drives - as I feared, my older M500 also subsequently died and this power cycling revived it, at least long enough to copy everything off of it), and the best I could do was to occasionally have Windows pop up a drive found message followed by a could not format error (and still not appearing in Device Manager or Disk Management). Since the drive is recognized by the BIOS during bootup, on a hunch I tried booting from an Acronis Backup CD and sure enough, the files appeared; as I type this I am attempting to have Acronis "back up" (with the intention to immediately "restore") the files. How frustrating is that? The files aren't gone, but neither Windows nor the software from the SSD manufacturer can find them.
EDIT: Upgrading from two to three stars, as I now strongly suspect that the drive(s) did not fail on their own. A few weeks later, the entire computer stopped turning on, which turned out to be a bad power supply. The clue was the Micron FAQ about the power cycling, which is described by the FAQ as a way to sometimes bring a Crucial drive back after it has been exposed to inconsistent power.
But three stars is the most they'll get - my much older STEC drive (my swap drive - heavy use!) and main Kingston (O/S partition) were on the same power supply and neither one even hiccuped while both Crucials died.
