Cloning can create problems, it works or it don`t.

I would start fresh. Especially with a new SSD

Please tell us you created a Disk Image before you wiped the hard drive.

I did a backup, but that was about 4 months ago, would be quicker reinstalling everything!

How can I find out what it is trying to do when the HD light is on solid? event viewer sometimes doesn't even give any errors.

- Run sfc /scannow on a command prompt as administrator
- Schedule a check disk on both disks.

How big is your SSD?

You're wasting to much time. AddRam suggested a clean install. So do I.

As you already have a backup, this is what I would do.
- Remove the HDD - Important.
- Boot from your Win 7 installation disk (if your BIOS is UEFI boot it as UEFI) - Install - advanced - delete all partitions - create new. It will create the necessary partitions.
- When it comes to give your user name, enter Audit (follow Kari tutorial - attached).
- After entering audit mode, shutdown and put on the HDD.
- Reboot and follow Kari tutorial. Attached is the Sysprep.cmd.txt and the Relocate.xml. You will have to edit Relocate.xml to match the Win 7 installation disk. Place Sysprep.cmd.txt and Relocate.xml at D:\ and rename it to Sysprep.cmd. Be careful, DO NOT execute it.
Follow Kari till you get your laptop running normally.
- Read SSD.txt and Profile.txt
- Move your data to D:\Users\Ash

Seems to be fixed... I have been running for a couple of weeks to be sure. I checked all the junctions and found some erroneous entries which I changed, and some strange entries which I deleted. I also did a sack of maintenance on the registry in general and reinstalled various drivers so in the end I am only half sure that the problem was the junctions. Anyway, now it is fixed it seems fingers crossed. The amount of time to reinstall all my apps and get things how I like them would have been several weekends of my time.
