Windows 7: Win 7 Will Not Boot After Recovery To New SSD

Win 7 Will Not Boot After Recovery To New SSD

I used Acronis True Image to backup the partitions made of my c: to my backup external drive. I have since restored that backup to my new OCZ Trion 150-240 GB SSD. I then booted from another Win 7 drive on the same machine and had the new SSD as a secondary drive when the recovery was made.

Following recovery my diskmgmt.msc view shows the 2 partitions created on drive 0 as c: "system reserved" and c: but does not list the same info as does a healthy running drive. It does not list system, boot, page file, crash dump etc.

I am trying to narrow down if the problem has to do with:

1) Problem with the recovery method I used or setup(had SSD as secondary drive upon recovery)
2) Problem with my setup of the new SSD drive
2) The backed up drive data data itself used for the recovery
3) OS driver/file issues that may have existed prusior (although I wouldn't think that should effect the way the partitioned information was setup).
