Hello, I have tried to move my Win OS to a new bigger HDD, Which I did in the past, but now when I upgraded again, it doesn't like it and says "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSTER SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER". I looked around but nearly all posts lead to a program called LiveBoot, but I don't have the money to go buy it. I was wondering if there are any programs that will make the BIOS boot from the new HDD ot that will repair the OS to make it boot?
(I have been using EASEUS ToDo backup using system backup and restore.)
Thanks.

Sounds like the boot record is missing, you didn't copy the win7 boot partition or the disk is not set as active. EASEUS should help you with that.
