    Hi,

    I was following my old thread instructions https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/cloning-using-ifw-or-others.361787/ the only differences is I am using IFW disc instead of IFL disc.
    It worked. The new HDD booted up but upon booting up, it shows Bootmgr is missing. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to reboot
    I tried recovery and repair using Windows 7 ISO which I burned to my USB and it refuse to repair.
    Even I when I tried to use CMD with the following command, "Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd, and then press ENTER" all it did was just listed out " 1 Installation found. Press Yes (Y)/No (N)/ All (All)' something like that.

    What should I do now?
    @Brian K What should I do now? This is my sister's laptop.

    Have you checked that the correct partition is set active? For example, if Windows was booting from the System Reserved partition then that would be the active partition. Also, verify the BIOS is booting the correct drive (if more than one).

    Are the partitions on this laptop's drive exactly the same as those in your previous thread? Windows 7? I assume you restored an image and didn't clone/copy. Can you provide more details on the configuration?
