Windows 7: New HDD, broken MBR (no bootable device found)

New HDD, broken MBR (no bootable device found)

I've recently replaced my secondary HDD in HP Pavillion dv7 (primary is SSD@W8.1) and as soon as I booted up computer, I got error "no bootable devices found". The first thing that I tried out was bootable USB with Windows 8.1 whereas I ran "automatic repair" several times, without any luck.

Then I opened up command prompt under advanced menu and ran:
bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot
bootrec /scanos
bootrec /rebuildbcd

None helped, probably because of "element not found" error. I also tried with diskpart where I manually selected (see screenshot) SSD system partition for active one, but still without any luck.

I'm really out of ideas, nothing seem to work. I also created bootable Minitool Parition Magic USB and ran Rebuild BCD from there and it still didn't help.

What else could I do, this is really frustrating?

Can we see a picture of the full drive map showing all listings from Partition Wizard CD? Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Are you sure the correct OS SSD is set first to boot in BIOS setup?

Did you unplug all other drives when doing the repairs?
