Cannot Access Recovery Partition after clonig OS to new SSD
Hi guys.I need to recover my os.
The problem is I bought a new SSD and added it and cloned my OS to the SSD.
The recovery partition that my Asus ROG came with is in my HDD.
How do I access it and how do I recover the OS to its original state.
The hdd isn't showing in boot options in bios and I cannot set the recovery partition as active through cmd.
I have all my backup files but no OS backup.
I had the same issue earlier and Asus fixed it for me.So how did they do it?

I fixed it.Thwre are two ways.
1.Download the original copy from Microsoft and install it. If your lap came with the original copy it'll take the key from bios. (Make sure you Download the Windows 10home, not the N edition or the single language edition)
Thw problem with this method is that you can only install in your hdd and then clone it to ssd again
2.Boot through a Linux CD and make a bootable USB outta your recovery partition and then use the same to install the os in your ssd.
