Windows 7: Problems moving HDD to SSD in an Acer Laptop

Problems moving HDD to SSD in an Acer Laptop

Hello!

I've been trying to move all my HDD to the SSD for the past 2 days. I tried almost everything, but it does't work.
In my HHD there are 3 partitions:
-PQSERVICE, (the one Acer put to reinstall everything, used to install windows 7 from here
-Another of 100MB used by windows 7
-C:\... where I have all the stuff y want to move

I copied it to my SSD, although my HDD is 500GB and my SSD 250GB. I resized all the partitions of the HDD to fit in the SSD. Then I copied it partition by partition with EASEUS.

But here's the problem: when I switch on my laptop with the SSD, it just simply doesn't load windows. It says Acer and then... all black, with a flicking white bar.

I tried to restore the MBR with the windows disk (when I did this, my laptop continued switching on and off all alone), I tried with HBCD to boot, and it almost runs, it logs me into the eRecovery Management from Acer, and I formatted the disk, as I wanted to do. but finally it boots me into the same black screen.

Can you help me please? I don't really know what to do... I'm thinking of erasing everything, installing windows 8, but I don't like the idea, because I want the PQSERVICE partition in my laptop, it works really well when it attaches to windows and knows the configuration and everything of the computer. I installed a windows 7 pro to try it for this laptop some time ago, but it's just all messed up without that Acer software.

Thank you.

Can only recommend what theog has already recommended. I used those tutorials when I switched to an SSD and haven't had one problem yet.
