EEPC problem after creating system image in windows 7

I backed up my laptop's c drive using built in windows 7 system image tool. I restored the image to a new hard drive and it works find (not encrypted), however, the original hard drive now fails to boot after the initial mcafee endpoint password screen with the following error:

The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

Is this behavior by design? Will I need to take the laptop in to the IT guys for repair? I've heard horror stories of other employees who had to wait 32 hours for the hard drive to decrypt in order to salvage the data. Is this my fate?
