I installed Win 7 on another SSD and it works fine. But my old SSD can't seem to boot win 7.

The SSD is fine, I can see the files. GParted marked the main 'partition' as boot.

The repairing of it says something about missing partitions and trying to fix it. Though that didn't seem to work.

I've also noticed that along with main partition the System Reserved partition decided to show itself, not sure if that's related. Also, in Diskpart, there doesn't seem to be a name assigned to the volume, not sure if that plays a part too.

Your computer already had a SSD containing Windows 7.
You left the original SSD installed and connected and then installed a second SSD and installed Windows 7 in it.
Is that correct?

I've never used a SS hard drive and have only used SATA hard drives, but I'm sure the install procedure of Windows 7 is the same.
I also have never used Gparted or Diskpart, so I can't comment on them.

BEFORE you installed Windows 7 in the newer SS hard drive, did you disconnect the older SS hard drive?

I'm new to using 2 physical hard drives and have only done it with SATA hard drives to run 2 Windows operating systems independent of each other in the same computer.
I don't see where doing it with 2 SSD hard drives would be any different, and I don't see the need of using a third-party utility.
