Cloning HDD to SSD on Sony VAIO VPCSE1BFX.. Not working!?

Laptop Tech Support Forum - www.tomsguide.com
I recently bought a new SanDisk Ultra 3D SSD 250GB that I would like to use to replace the OEM Toshiba 640GB HDD that is in the laptop. I have tried almost every possible way to clone my HDD to my new SSD and even when it says successful, the moment I turn on the laptop with the SSD installed, it pops up with "No Operating System". I have used partition software to reduce partitions to clone directly since I am only using about 160GB of the 640GB HDD anyways. The only fix I can potentially try next is re-installing Windows onto the new drive, and re-installing every driver for the computer. The problem is I do not have a Win 7 CD and I believe I need specific Win 7 software to use the Product Key affixed to the laptop. Does anyone have any suggestions worth trying? This doesn't make sense.
