I played baseball with the easybutton. That thing has more parts than you'd think! Did you know the CEO made a 41% increase in his pay in a year where we lost revenue, profits, stock, and lost our spot on the Fortune 500? Yeah, that's logical.
Anyway, I'm not real sure about the SSD migration. From what I've read over the last year, it's just way easier to do a fresh install than to migrate on SSDs. I know that's really not the answer you're looking for, but you'll have your boot disc in a couple of days, maybe it's best to just wait it out? Also, if you can boot into Windows, your Key will be in the Control panel. You can just write it down and put your key in on the fresh install. Hey, maybe find a MSDN dev link to the Ultimate disc and get it installed? It's not like you're pirating anything since you actually own the product and the key.

Staples isnt THAT bad but yes, it does suck. The pens do suck. I personally like Zebra. I am an accountant Monday thru Friday but I just wanted some extra spending money for things like this :-). I do agree that this company does have priorities in the wrong place. They send all the store managers to Orlando or Las Vegas for a week long convention. But we can only get a 3% increase? On my 8.41 wage?? Thanks for the $0.26! Ill try not to spend it all in one place. The one thing that I do like is they have a 401k which my real job does not.

I didnt know the key was there and I do have a copy of win 7 ultimate. Would the next step just be create a system image on an external and then do a fresh install and restore system image? I know that this is something I should know but at the same time, I dont want to be too careless.

One thing you need to do before running it is to disable the anti virus, as most of them protect access to the the boot areas pretty well and could be your issue, even though it says migration successful, you'll get the insert boot media error.

Going to give it a try after I do a backup again. Thank you!

Do you have a DVD drive? Just do a fresh install onto your new SSD if you do, but prior to that, get into your old windows, and get your Key written down.

I migrate OS to Crucial, then restart and set it as the primary and it says insert boot media. I do not have the Windows 7 Ultimate disc or the key that I had but will shortly (getting shipped from my Dads house) and should be here Wednesday. I just dont understand what I could be doing wrong...
Also, when I take out the crucial and put back in the intel, it boots up fine. When I plug in the crucial via usb to sata, it shows that I have 111gb used (which is the amount that I have on Intel)

The Crucial SSD will need the system reserved partition that has the bootmgr file too, without it, it won't boot. That's possibly the issue.

***Club update***

Ok well everyone might just now notice my name is now the thread owner. I attempted to contacted esproductions a while back however he has been inactive. I've wanted to help with the list and setting up the front page but have been unable to do so. So the website has given me thread ownership as they have also been unable to reach esproductions. With that said I want to say this esproductions has done an amazing job organizing and setting this club up. The contest and giveaway he ran with NZXT where really cool and fun. This club has been running for a very long time and has become the biggest case mod club on OCN so this will be no easy task to fill in his shoes. If he becomes active again and wants the club back I will give it to him.

Now I have a huge task of remaking all the list. This is going to be a a major overtaking so any volunteers who want to help me run the list just send me a PM and I will set you up. Nobody PM me asking me to be put on the list. It's gonna take a week or so to get it all updated.

Lastly I will be contacting the promotions department of NZXT and informing them of the change and work on getting contest for the club reflowing.

thank you,
evil jerry

Thank you evil Jerry. I havent been here long but I know that this is a lot of work and I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me so far, and the ones that will help me in the future. This has been quite a learning experience for me and I am so glad for the NZXT and OCN Community so far. If I can help, I will, I just dont know how much just yet!
