It won't matter what type of drive it is SSD or mechanical I have tried both types when cloning and on 2 different Asus motherboards the drives boot to a J.
The only fix I found was boot to command prompt and use diskpart. The letters are usually swapped system reserve is c and main is d. You have to swap them back.
diskpart - to see the drives
list volume - to see and chose the partitions
select volume - to make changes to that particular partition
remove letter=C to remove the wrong letter C from "system reserved" partition 99-100MB
assign letter=k or whatever is available, then select volume for main partition
remove letter=d or whatever letter the main partition is (usually the largest partition)
assign letter=C
list volumes to double check that it is now correct
exit stay in command prompt and perform the following commands
enter cd C:\windows\system32 hit enter
bootrec /fixmbr hit enter
bootrec /rebuildbcd hit enter
exit
boot to windows
