How do I make my cloned ssd bootable?

September 13, 2015 at 22:26:41
Specs: Windows 7 x64, AMD 1090T x6
I removed user files to make my C: content smaller than the 480 GB SSD and cloned with EaseUS ToDo using the SSD alignment option. The content looks correct, but no variations of the boot priority or SATA connections have made the SSD bootable. It is connected as Disk 0. Disk Management shows the cloned partition does not have Boot, Page File or Crash Dump. Also, the Recovery partition clone does not have System. Should I use a different clone utility, or ?

You haven't cloned all the partitions from old drive to the SDD. Essential boot data is missing.

Do it again with proper cloning software.

The support page for the SSD should have cloning software for their drives.

You also may be able to use a Windows 7 Repair Disk to do a Start Up Repair which should create a new Boot Partition. You can create a Windows 7 repair disk from any working windows 7 machine as long as both machines are 64bit (or both 32bit), the option is in the Back up Section.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
