    Thought I had sorted it managed to get all 4 partitions restored to the SSD but somehow had mixed up the order what should have been the 2nd partition was actually the 3rd and vv. Anyway would not boot same old no OS. Tried to see if possible to just swap partition positions around but failed so I thought okay done it once will do it fresh again.
    Started from the beginning. All okay until trying to restore.

    Hello Bogart99,

    Have you taken the backup of your data before you have cloned your hard drive? I am totally agreeing with the ‘fireberd’ and ‘WHS’ that cloning is totally a hit and miss. How regular are you updating your OS? Because if you often reinstall your OS, then you can face the following error messages:

    1. Operating system not found
    2. Missing Operating System
    3. Setup did not find any hard drives installed on your computer.

    There may be few possibilities that your “OS cannot be found”. Few of them are mentioned below:

    i) The hard disk is not detected by the Computer input/output system (BIOS)
    ii) There may be chances that your hard drive is damaged or corrupted.
    iii) Master Boot Record (MBR) on hard drive is broken. The possibility is that – some third party programs or disk operations can damage an MBR.
    iv) A partition that contains an MBR is no longer active.
    v) An incompatible partition is marked as selective.

    You can fix the error by implementing on the following:

    1) First thing is “Make Sure that your hard disk is detected by BIOS” – When the computer is booting up, you can press the function key depending upon the manufacturer as it varies. Check the instructions and check that your hard disk is listed there in the list. If your hard drive is not listed, it means that your hard drive creates some issues for you.

    2) You can use ‘Stellar Phoenix WDR – Professional’ which comes with the Booting CD. It also helps you to recover your data if you have lost any. I have not used it, but I have seen many forums where it has been discussed.

    Hope it will work for you… Good Luck!!!

    Been exceptionally busy recently and will be moving house soon so will get my PC back, currently in storage, and will install in that so laptop will then go up for sale. I was rather a saga to say the least.
