Cloned Drive with Windows 7
I installed W7 on my D: drive and it was only 80GB, and had everything running to my satisfaction. Started adding a few programs from my Vista install and thought the drive was to small, so cloned the drive unto a backup drive and installed a 1TB drive. Cloned the image back unto the new drive, but when I try to dual boot, it doesn't see W7. I tried booting from the W7 disk, to do a startup repair, but it doesn't see W7 installed on the new drive.

A cloning app. - a decent one anyway, would give you the option to increase the clone to the size of the target drive - you can always shrink the free space afterwards.
Looks like the partition table - showing one 80gb partition was cloned back as well.
That's why the o/s thinks that's all there is.
You will notice both L and E are showing as 80gb.
I would use my Paragon program to correct the table.
Don't think Diskpart would do it.
You may need to boot the 7 dvd, start the install, go to drive options(advanced) and delete then reformat the remaining space.
Then abort the installation.
