:hello: 
I've cloned my 320GB HDD to a 128GB SSD. Before you think I lost my mind :pt1cable:  let me state, I've used "less" than 25% of that 320GB HDD.

Now, my problem is this. When I boot up the cloned SSD in my new] laptop it will not bootup and says, it does not detect a bootble disk. I've tried the repair/restore three times with no success. Does anyone know for certain what I might do to repair this issue and get it to bootup correctly?

Anyone that positively knows for a fact what will work and is willing to share that information with me, will be sincerely appreciated! For help that literally fixes this issue I will give you a 15% and/or free shipping discount on anything for sale in my ebay store that sells for more than $110.00.

I would go to the backup part of win7 and Select create a system image. Boot from the cd and selct restore sytem from image. Select the reinstall to the SSD.

Did you resize the disk to the smallest partition that it could be. What i would do if so is put the 320 back in, run Defraggler (a good free de-frag tool) then go into disk management and see how much you can shrink the disk.
If you straight clone the disk it does not work. Shrinking the disk to below 128gb will ensure that everything vital is on.
Hope that helps :)

MY RESPONSE TO THE TWO THAT TOOK THE TIME TO TRY TO HELP ME, **THANK YOU KINDLY!** THIS IS MY ANSWER ON HOW I SOLVED MY PROBLEM.

The Easy Gig IV Cloning Software "Crucial" Sold As A Packaged Unit Was Ineffective. When I found the freeware "Macrium" it worked perfectly, it took exactly 1:54:45 The fellow that I purchased the Crucial 128GB SSD W/Transfer Kit was exceptionally helpful, after he gave me the "Macrium" URL I downloaded it, hook every up and let it do its thing and it worked perfectly! So, anyone contemplating purchasing a Crucial ?GB SSD W/transfer Kit, should be aware that the Easy Gig IV Transfer Software Kit Does NOT Work AND Crucial knows this but instead of admitting it, they lead you on a Merry-Go, but there's a lot of other cloning software out there that works well. My advice (that I should've followed) do your due dilligence before purchasing cloning software.

Again, thank you Alexinnes and Tranzz, I sincerely appreciate your input! Bless you both, Shalom!
