Nope, I can see the recovery partition but everytime I try to boot from it, I just get left hanging ont he apple loading screen. I'm about to attach the verbose screen from booting up with SSD inside. I can't see anything obvious but could you have a look?

I've cloned from the USB HDD to internal SSD and the same problem still exists :( It can copy fine, but cannot boot :(

I've restarted the copying processed based on your advice of swapping the disks around (SSD connected internally with HDD via USB). The disk utility tool could see it and erase it fine but the recovery tool (to create a recovery partition) is struggling to complete. Kicked off this process about 30 minutes ago and it is still stuck on "checking catalog file". Faulty SSD?

Thanks for the reply. How do you mean "try changing the same for the SSD"? When I formatted the SSD drive I renamed this to "SSD". Do I need to do this again?

It's really weird. Because when it is fitted interally, pressing option whilst booting up establishes to me that it is connected and the mac can see it. It just fails to boot from it :/

Thanks for the reply. I've shutdown the mac, inserted the SSD, then booted it up whilst holding down the option key. It can see it (it shows me a recovery hd and my SSD). After I click it and press enter, it gives me the apple logo and spinning wheel. It's been on this for 5 minutes so far so I am assuming that it hasn't worked?
