Windows 7: Upgrading to SSD

16 Jul 2016   #21

Windows 7 home premium 64 bit

Well, I deleted a folder that was around 125 gb in size (bf4 gameplay) and I re-image my current drive. The previous clone was still on the SSD and it was 125 gb more used total, but when I chose the image to restore in the macrium bootable usb enviroment, it copied all partitions except the recovery partions from the original saying there wasn't enough free space. I didn't reformat. The restore went fine with no errors, but when I put the SSD inside the laptop, it showed the lenovo screen with automatic repair on the bottom. After a few minutes it couldn't repair it and asked to shut down. I was able to get to the built in recovery options and chose 'command prompt'. I used this website "" and followed solution 1 and 2, running check disk and manually repair the BCD and rebuild the MBR. Upon entering the commands, the outcome is exactly like was pictured on the website, except it found the directories in the C:/ drive. It wasn't fixed after rebooting and I'm completely confused, frustrated, and tired. Any help would be appreciated, I just want to get my SSD installed and working . Here is macrium reflect of my hard drive I imaged, how come it says "GPT disk 1"?
