Windows 7: Controller change, adapt Win7 - BSOD

Controller change, adapt Win7 - BSOD

Hello I need some help with an issue which has put me in a really bad spot.
My knowledge level is not the greatest. I am an engineer, not an IT person.

History:
  • Dell T7600 with PERC H310 controller, was working fine.
  • The H310 adapter died! (No Dell warranty, bought PC used) Controller also took the HDD with it it seems.
  • Lucky: I have a 6 day old Clonezilla image of the complete machine on an external drive.
  • Bought new HDD, ripped out dead H310 controller, hooked up to onboard Intel C600 controller.
  • After applying the image, PC comes up with an expected BSOD ( 0x0000007B ).
Problem(s):
  • Running System Recovery from the Windows options (Launch Startup Repair), or from a Windows 7 SP1 (same as OS installed), I try to load drivers from a USB drive (drivers have been downloaded directly from Dell and Intel). No OS is found!
  • W/o this I cannot go anywhere, try anything else.
Possible solution?:
  • I guess I could take the drive out, hook it up to another PC via USB?! Would anyone know what I have to modify to get it going again? I have found some posts regarding changes between AHCI & IDE, not sure if this applies.
Any help, comment, pointer is greatly appreciated!

A 0x7B BSOD means inaccessible boot device. And that is all possible. Cause, you have copied the OS, not the bootloader (which is situated in another hidden 100MB partition called System Reserved). In absence of the bootloader, no OS will be detected.

For what you have attempted, you should have followed either method 2 or method 3 of Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer.

Now, in the present situation, we may try something different.

Try it .... run Startup Repair for three separate times, with restarts after every single run.
Startup Repair: Run three separate times.

Hopefully it will add the bootloader in the HDD. If not, better you install windows in the new HDD afresh.

Then you can try to get your user data back from the image.

Hi primergy,

In addition to steps correctly suggested by Arc, you can also check BIOS and ensure SATA operation is correctly configured.

I have seen alot of times this error coming up due to the SATA operation configuration as well. Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
