I cloned an older computer onto a SSD, I mounted the SSD in a new laptop. The SSD does not show up in the BIOS under the boot menu. Does anyone know how I can boot into the SSD?

The laptop is an ASUS TO500L series, i7-2880(or something like that), 8gb ddr3, previous OS and drive is windows and a HDD.

I used macrium reflect to clone it and it has worked three times before. I have checked it, the amount of bytes match. I just need to know how to boot it.

Did you put the Drive out and back in again? That's happened to me before.

laptops are very particular about the drivers installed. Your cloned SSD has drivers for the system it was cloned from. Those drivers (particularly any motherboard specific drivers) might be incompatible with the new laptop.

You're right, the Laptop probably doesn't recognize the Drivers and is screwing up.

I booted into the old drive, then while the windows 7 loading icon appeared it crashed. I can enter startup repair, but nothing works there...
