I got a new Crucial M4 128 GB Sata 3 solid state drive that i cloned my OS on to. I have a laptop with two 500 GB drives, one holding the OS and one holding data. I swap the os drive with the SSD and i get an error on boot "BOOTMGR is Missing". I tried loading from a system restore disk and when it loads it does not show the OS on the SSD in the list of OS when it first loads.
tried the following commands in cmd:
BOOTREC /FIXMBR - success
BOOTREC /FIXBOOT - element not found
BOOTREC /REBUILDBCD - finds os but when i try to enter Y or Yes to add to boot list it returns element not found
BOOTREC /SCANOS - Finds OS
I also used diskpart to make sure the partition is active on the drive so i am at a loss for what else can be done to make it work.
My laptop is an Asus G72GX if that makes any difference.
