That did the trick! I thought I tried that last night but I guess not, oh well. Thanks for the sage advice!

That's awesome, glad to see you got it working
Now, you should be able to do whatever you want with the old HD.

Sometimes it takes running Startup Repair up to 3 times to get everything working.
Maybe you only ran it 1 time, and running it again finished fixing the new drive bootloader.
