You have two partitions on disk 0. As you cloned the disk, fist partition has the boot loader and second should have windows and data.
On disk management, assign letter D: to the second partition on disk 0

Alright I'll try to follow that.

Is there a setting in Admin Disk Services to automatically assign a drive letter and then save that?
Is there a check box or something?

Success and marked solved. At least we got through this in the proper steps
rather than a lot more wire jiggling.

I would note in the explanation that when you select change drive letter, a white box shows up and the
new drive letter doesn't go in there. Press the add tab and D: is pre-selected.

Thanks to all who helped. I'll come back of more in needed.
