Did you do both parts though?

It sounds as though you only did step 1, which is the creation of the backup image? - How to Create a System Image Backup in Windows 7


Step 2 looks like it would restore from your image in step 1 - How to Do a System Image Recovery in Windows 7

You realize you're suppose to remove the current c drive and have the new one as the one you restore to right? Lol

I and many others have successfully restored system images to new drives. You just did it completely wrong XD

That is really good for a laptop, I usually see people get massive drops in performance due to chipset limitations.

Don't go around telling people false information if you haven't consulted yet with Sean about his guide. There's a bigger probability that you didn't follow correctly because as Sean said these steps were tested personally by him and many others.

Before you restore the image take your old drive out, plugin your new drive, when you go through the restore steps restore to the new drive, what is so hard? lol.

If you still can't get your head around it use clonezilla: http://clonezilla.org/show-live-doc-content.php?topic=clonezilla-live/doc/03_Disk_to_disk_clone
