What did you use to transfer the image to SSD?

I used neither. I did a clean install in ahci mode. Don't worry too muck, the registry tweek is simple if you have to do it. But I think you need to change to ahci mode before you boot into the ssd.

Well you all may be right.

The only other way is to use the Intel migrate which will copy the entire HDD then I will have to delete XP on the SSD and remove the partition.

I just got everything set up on Win7 the way I wanted.

BAH!

Oh well such is life!

If yo need to enable ahci use this tutorial by BFK. It is simple and works perfect, takes 5 minutes. The ahci drivers have to be installed before 1st boot.

Okay.
Paragon Migrate only listed the C/Win7 or E/XP - no System Reserve.

Intel Migrate showed the entire HDD- C, D- reserve, E.

I have Macrium images of XP so I can re image it later on the HDD.
So I deleted XP in Disk Management on the HDD then expanded C to include E/XP.
Intel Migrate then transfered the entire HDD "C" and "D" partitions to the SSD.
Then I rebooted and it went straight to the SSD.
I wasn't 100% sure, it was slow on first boot after transfer which drive booted.

Went into Disk Management and new C is on the SSD and is only "Boot"
Win 7 on HDD is bootable but would have to be done thru bios now.

Did the BFK tutorial for AHCI.
ALL drivers then installed.
Reboot to Bios and set it to AHCI.
Reboot and here I am!

As you will see in Snip Reserve appears screwed up. Too small.
I don't know what happened at it shows empty.
Might be an Administrator thing to access files???

Anyway it works so I may do a wipe and clean install this weekend.
I mostly wanted to make surethe SSD worked today.

I am deeply appreciative for everyones assistance!

Hoppy, just guessing... The migration tool was migrating from a larger HD to a smaller HD. It only transfered the 'written to' part so that it could accomplish that. That is why system reserved is so small. It only transfered the boot files from the old HD. But, I think you will not be able to do a system image the way it is set up. If you re-install do a secure erase with the toolbox first.
