Try putting old HD drive back in & make the Startup repair disc.

all drives are in... this isnt an 'old' drive as this laptop is brand new... all I have done is added the ssd... surely I dont have to remove the hard drive as well?

Is the 100MB partition the 'active' partition. You can check that with the bootable CD of Partition Wizard.

Unplug all but the SSD, Mark System Reserved Partition Active, then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

If this fails reimage the SSD this time choosing to copy the MBR and Track0, mark SysReserved Active.

Did you say you had constructed the 100mb partition on the SSD? Was it not on the HD orginally. If this is the case you must mark it Active and run 3 Startup Repairs for the installer or Repair CD to write the System boot files to it.

If this fails, mark C Active and run up to 3 Repairs to start it.
