Can't boot from cloned hard drive

I needed more storage space so i successfully cloned my original samsung hard drive to a new seagate using DriveImage XML. However, even tho BIOS sees the clone now in SATA-0, & even tho Boot sequence has SATA drive 1st, i can't boot. can anyone suggest what might be wrong? (Dell Optiplex 745 / windows 7).

  1. Did you clone the entire drive (all partitions) or just the C partition? Windows 7 likes to keep its boot files on a small, separate 100MB partition.
