You'll need to wait for Kaktussoft to continue with those commands. He is the command wizard.
I use only the automated methods.

Next try Macrium direct clone, if prompted choose without MBR or Track 0, Auto drive letter. Delete and add again in Easy.
Thanks gregrocker, and this is noted.

This is the boot menu doesn't matter if it is Windows 7 for now.

When I boot Windows 7 it will appear #2 picture below.

When entering the highlight "Launch Startup Repair (Recommend)",
which is cannot be seen in this photo, the result is the #3 picture below.

Other things when entering "Start Windows Normally" from #2 picture above,
Windows is loaded like this picture but it will end up of some programs not found in the #5 picture.

So pwNative and autocheck... Sounds like partition wizard native... Looks like pw was not completely finished or something strange. But actually the system DOES BOOT to win7. Nothing wrong with boot entry in boot menu.

Do what Greg told you.... clone again but now use macrium reflect

In elevated command prompt:
Code:
dir/a  D:\Recovery\9e0f2ee7-5478-11e4-b383-8c89a561fee6\
boot.sdi and winre.wim are in that folder? I don't think so.... because windows recovery fails with 0xc000000f

Oh dear Windows 7, It's working by EasyBCD!

I just add the boot entry from EasyBCD then boot that entry and choose to boot the "last good configuration (advanced)" from other choices.

I'm not sure if this is already fixed. I have now three entries in boot menu. Windows 8.1, Windows 7 ( haven't retest it yet) and Microsoft Windows 7 (from EasyBCD entry).

The clone is still the same from partition Wizard made.

Ok, among three entries are working now. I just miss to add the Windows 7 entry and its drive to where the clone is from EasyBCD app.

And I deleted one boot entry from msconfig.

Thanks
