Cant boot to new SSD - Help!

I installed the SSD - windows recognizes it, and it shows up in my list of drives. I ran the included Samsung clone softwear that Samsung provides and it said the clone was successful.

When I open the SSD the contents are identical to my current C drive HDD.

I think it should be working.

But when I boot into BIOS (asus mobo) and choose boot from the SSD, I get ' Disk Boot Error. Not Sure why.

I can still boot from HDD if i disconnect the SSD.

Really frustrating because the benchmarks are thousands of times faster than the HDD!

Any Suggestions?

    Disconnect HDD and Plug SSD into SATA port 0
    If not, then insert Windows disc and run a repair.
