I have now tried booting with the SSD both inside and outside of the laptop, but either way, I get the message about inserting a bootable disk.

No, I haven't tried booting with the SSD in the docking station. I'll try that now.

I have tried both connections from the docking station - same behavior with each (Intel RST notices the drive, but it is not visible in Windows). This was the case both before and after I created the partition on it and restored the HDD image to it. I may update the BIOS to see if that fixes it - does that seem like a good thing to try?

I have not tried that. To clarify, do you mean having the SSD in the laptop, booting from a Windows 7 install disc, and attempting to repair the installation on the SSD?

It should be noted that CloneZilla cannot copy an image to a destination partition that is smaller than the source partition. From their stie: "The destination partition must be equal or larger than the source one."
