So I was running a nice dual boot with win7 on an ssd and win10 on a standard hhd. (Upgraded from win7)
I bought a new ssd drive and cloned the win10 hhd to the new ssd. I swapped the old hhd drive with the new ssd out but I no longer get the Windows dual boot option screen upon powering up.

When I go into my BIOS and try to boot from the old ssd even though it shows, only the new ssd boots.

How do I re establish the Windows dual boot screen?

What software was used to perform the clone?


A clone of the Win 10 drive...should have carried the boot files for the old SSD (Win 7) to the new SSD.  It doesn't sound like that happened.


I think I would try a repair install of Win 10...actually, I would try EasyBCD first because I consider it simpler and quicker.
