Windows 7: sata to sata 3 cable

Ok, I'm an idiot. I looked at the 4 wire connector and thought is was a molex connector. It indeed fits the new ssd. So, I plug in the ssd and I get a black screen saying:
boot from cd
no boot device available
SATA 0 installed
SATA 1 installed
SATA 4 none
sata 5 none

You need both connectors, power and data. Power to the power supply, data to the motherboard.

TZ, what I thought was a 4 wire molex, is not. It does fit the ssd.

Is it possible that I didn't clone it correctly causing this? I used Acronis to do it, not the program that came with the ssd. Worked fine using Acronis when I went to a larger ssd in my laptop.

Actually, they do but you have to hunt a bit (quite a bit). However, the point is moot since it doesn't appear to be the OP's problem.

Do you still want pictures? I was mistaken about the connectors. I saw a 4 wire connector and "assumed" it would not fit the ssd. I can, but I'll need to shut down the pc and remove the hdd to photograph it.
