@DH
Brand new asus k55a
installed windows 7 and ssd drive
Can you please explain the steps you took.
You removed drive that came with K55A, and you put in your own new SSD?
You installed Windows 7 from what source?
Did you install all the proper drivers?  (Intel, SSD, etc)

Thanks. Is it better to install the new HD and clone by booting to the PE, or is it better to put it in the enclosure, clone it from within Windows and then switch them?
Bump.

Do you have the XP CD? Reinstall (with a format).
You can use this, if you don't.
