Windows 7: cannot boot to (cloned) hdd after ssd install

cannot boot to (cloned) hdd after ssd install


My new ssd is running great, it feels like a new car.

But I am having trouble with my backups. When I unplug the ssd and try to boot off the hdd (which worked before I installed my ssd) I get boot manager screens.

How can boot off my clones? I'm using Win7 and did not change the BIOS except to boot off of CD for the ssd install.
