Yes I did. This happened after booting into recovery then leaving it as soon as it said "Please back up before pressing the check box"
So you did succesfully boot into recover partition? When do you get the BSOD when trying to boot normally?

The boot menu entry points to an entry and that partition doesn't exist!

Um. Well after I cloned it again, the audio works. I guess we will never find out the solution to the problem. Well then! Thanks for the help, I guess...

If you clone the correct way.... all is still the same. Problems that may occur:
  • DISK ID (kind of serial number for disk) of new disk is different. Boot menu points to old old disk. Most clone software handles that problem. Otherwise "start repair" fixes the boot menu.
  • Also due to the diskid change... drive letters in registry point to old disk. Good clone software fixes that. Otherwise force the old disk id is not available anymore. Simply detach old disk (temporary from system). Windows 7 can't find C,D etc on old disk... and because C is not available... it assigns C to the new Windows 7 partition.
  • Some clone software clones the diskid as well. So problems above don't occur. But two disks with same diskid... Windows 7 is confused, this is not allowed. Windows 7 doesn't know what is what! But if you boot from new disk just after cloning.... Windows 7 assigns a new diskid to old disk.
What problems did you have after cloning the second time? Normally none if you boot from new harddisk and detach old disk.
