Is it still worth getting an external disc enclosure to work from another pc?

I personally have all hot-swaps enabled. It shouldn't matter if you only have one drive with Windows 7 in the first sata port on the motherboard.
Is their anything on the Intel drive?
Exactly what is on the DVD that you are trying to boot with and where did you get it?

Has this ssd with Windows 7 on it ever booted in this troubled computer?
If so did this computer have the motherboard that it has now?

Here is a tutorial by Gregrocker with a lot of information that could help.

Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

I'm trying to understand what you have and what you have done.
Reading through this thread again 2 + 2 is not adding up to 4.

The pictures you post # 5 doesn't allow us to see drive letters or where the active flag (system) is.

Nothing is on the Intel other than Windows and a few things I could re download. It is the same motherboard I've had for the past 3 years, and the same ssd with widows on it that has always booted for me before the 12/9 windows update. These parts have always and only been in this machine which has worked great for the past 3years. This disc I'm trying to run is the Macrium Iso from whs, which he posted previously.

I did notice after going into partition wizard that it gives me the option to convert gpt disk to mbr disc for the ssd...and the other way around for hdd. The Intel is usually c: and the hdd either g or h. Not sure how to make partition wizard show that or which drive is system etc though.

Unhook all drives except the Intel ssd with Windows 7 installed. Leave them unhooked until later.

Will your computer boot.

Here is a tutorial by Gregrocker that has lot of information. I suggest you use it.

You had me unhook all other drives in a previous post from page 3 in this thread, and try booting, but it did not work. I tried again and still nothing. I'm going to pick up a friend's laptop and got an external enclosure. Thank you for the tutorial link, I'll try going through that. In the mean time, any thoughts on what's going on or what the quickest fix would be based on everything that's been going on?
