Don't do a repair!!


Did you remove the old win7 entry and created a new one? If not do it and let it point to new partition. After that reboot to the new win7 boot entry. What error message do you get?

May I know what Windows 7 entry exactly? In Local Disk D was formatted already before I copied the clone from there. In system reserved disk I haven't deleted.

Code:

All looks fine! Only 2 entries are unused now. So can be deleted. Can be done later of you wish.
In elevated command prompt:
Code:
bcdedit/delete  {c7fe2504-5585-11e4-a6ae-aa004b7323c5}
bcdedit/delete  {c7fe2505-5585-11e4-a6ae-aa004b7323c5}

Please do #18 again. But now do it correct!! Use MountedDevices instead of MountedDevice
You'd better use copy/paste
