Can't boot from cloned SSD. Error 0xc000000e.

So, I've got this 120gb SSD that I cloned my 2tb HDD to using this guide:
http://lifehacker.com/5837543/how-to-migrate-to-a-solid...
When I'm finished cloning using EaseUs ToDo I shut down my computer unplugg the HDD and try to boot from the SSD. Then a screen appears that says unable to boot... Error 0xc000000e. I've read many threads with similar problems but none of the solutions have worked for me. So my queston simply is, how do I fix this? I have AHCI enabled and if I try to boot the Windows installation disc (Windows 7) to run a repair I get to the loading screen but then it stops at a black screen with only my mouse courser on it.

Please help I don't know what to do!

The simply way is re-cloning maybe the 1st clone has problem. What is your PC specifications? MB model?

Was the HDD in AHCI mode originally (I'm thinking no)?

If not then set the ssd to the same mode the hdd was in and reboot. We can work on getting you to ahci mode after we get you booting up again.

I'm pretty sure it was in AHCI mode originally at least I haven't changed anything and if I enter BIOS AHCI is enabled

So I re-cloned the drive and now I can't boot from either of the drives as attemts on both of them result in a screen saying BOOTMGR missing.

My PC specs are:
Intel core i7 2600k processor
4x8gb corsair vengeance RAM
Intel desktop board DP67BG extreme series motherboard
2 ASUS radeon HD 6870 graphics cards

Yes, in other threads with similar problems if they can't fix it with win7 repair method, then they end up to reinstall the win7.

I will recommend to try other software from the HDD manufacturer;
1) If your HDD is WD, use this: Acronis True Image WD Edition Software http://support.wdc.com/product/downloaddetail.asp?swid=...
2) If your HDD is Seagate, use this: DiscWizard http://www.seagate.com/support/internal-hard-drives/ent...

If you still can't clone I will recommend do the clean install win7 into SSD. For use SSD with win7/win8, the best way is clean install win7 and cloning from SSD to SSD is good, but from HDD to SSD is OK.

Ok I'll do a clean install but do I have to buy a new copy of windows for that or how should I otherwise proced since I can't boot the windows Installation disc.

You don't need because you use the same MB.

I forget add the link for how to. You need go to the BIOS, set the boot order like DVD/CD=1st, HDD/SSD=2nd. And only connect the SSD +DVD/CD, not other HDD. Put in the win7 into DVD drive.

Okay I'm installing now but it's taking ages, much slower than usual.
