Windows 7: Might be missing MBR & 100MB partition on Boot SSD

essenbe,

Thank you for all that work and information. It is helpful. In fact, I'm going to take my 32gb usb thumb drive and make it a bootable drive just in case my system ever completely crashes.

My 64gb SSD has the correct offset so it's ready for whatever I'm going to put on it. Thanks again for everyone's help. I have very much appreciated it.

Peace,

Phroneo
