for a few days now I have been trying to recover my 1T single disk MBWE (blue rings) using a WD Red 1T (WD10ERFX) which I chose due to its advertised NAS-oriented specs. The old disk has become unstable and the system usually freezes or does not boot at all.
I have tried the Recovery and the Upgrade tutorials, with both the downloaded images and images I created from the old disk. I noticed that restoring the partition table from a 512b sector disk makes the new disk report unreal partition sizes (8TB total), which makes sense if the partition size is stored in sectors, so I even created similar size partitions with gparted and restored the images to them. Nothing worked.
Note: the WD Red reports 4096b logical and physical sector size.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
