    I made some days ago a perfect clone of my Lenovo G50-45 1TB SATA hd to a new Samsung SSD hd using: Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2015 and the usb3 adapter oricoonline.us/info.aspx?pid=16 (Google it).

    Have you tried to see if the Lenovo Onekey Recovery is working? I found that even though the clone seemed successful as in you could boot into your OS, most of the Recovery systems did not fully work.
    Terabyte worked.

    Also, if your HDD your cloning to SSD is partitioned & you want FULL recovery, including a USB Recovery key, then you could also get rid of the Data partition & make 1 big primary partition.
    Edit $PBR_Diskpart.txt & ResetPartitions.txt in the Recovery to remove creating Data partitions.

    ie, On a HP I worked on the Script was trying to make a 500GB Primary partition & remainder for Data. Won't work If I have a 256GB SSD...
