It's caused either by a change in the VSS snapshot, which is taken taken before imaging begins, or...

Probably a controller difference between the different PC's. You found a solution - use a different drive.

Shrink the partition on your hard drive to less than the size of the SSD.
Take another image and use that restore to your SSD.

Best advice yet.

Given what you've said, my alternative to imaging would be to set up system restore.
