I think maybe you're primary (boot) drive was mixed up in bios, but seeing as I'm late to the party...

At least it seems to be working now.

Woah.. slow down... don't reinstall just yet.

No one commented on the 0x7b error. This error is an inaccessable boot device.

My guess is that the the SATA config was wrong in the BIOS, as someone already mentioned. AHCI vs. IDE.

Double checkn your UEFI, and make sure that the "BIOS" UEFI see the SSD. Do you have other HDD's besides the SSD.


EDIT... Sorry I was late to the party. had i gotten here sooner....

just to let you know what happened... Your BCD (Boot configuration DATA) was on the HDD that you had removed from your system. That is why win7 couldn't be repaired, or reinstalled initially. There was no information to provide to the UEFI as to where the OS was. Unfortunately, doing a reinstall in the same manner, sets you up for the potential same problem down the road. The windows 7 "system/recovery" partition (100MB) is going to stay on the secondary HDD. This means that if it is removed, or becomes damaged, you will experience the same senario.

Ideally this partition is best placed on the SSD, so that you are only dealing with 1 drive for the OS. The only way to ensure this is to install Windows 7 with only the SSD attached.

I'm sorry man I already installed just to see if it was a blown hardware issue. I'm currently logged into Windows.

The problem I'm facing is. Something was causing my screen to go haywire. I tried to remedy by fixing GPU. Fixing GPU led to system crash. I'm just afraid to touch the computer now.

But at least I'm in Windows for now.

I have two 750GB Seagate HDDs and 1 Intel 120GB SSD in this rig currently.

I'm going to go into BIOS and make sure everything is checking out.

Anyway for now... thanks so much to everyone who was willing to help me. Stuff really hit the fan there. Time to go through and +Rep everyone.

Dang that is a bummer.... I will have to try your method of installing Windows 7 with only the SSD plugged in. I'm still nervous as to what's going on.

Hey guys is there a way to combine "Windows" and "Windows.old"? to bypass having to install every single driver again?

I don't believe so, but it'd be best to simply reinstall drivers and do away with any possible headaches.
post #56 of 62
Is this your rig sig? If yes, you might need to bump the vcore a notch up, or two.
post #57 of 62
Yes, I'd rather not combine Windows.Old and Windows because the corrupted drivers and files might transfer over. GL.

I just need the Network Adapter driver so Windows can automatically download the rest of the drivers but I can't seem to find it

If you have another computer or laptop, just go to the ASRock website and download it from there, put it on a USB stick, and then put it back on your machine.

Don't let Windows update install your drivers, especially the Video Drivers. Go straight to AMD's website and download it from there.

Yeah I'm sorry guys my brain is fried I just realized herp derp go get the Mobo CD and install drivers from there. Unfortunately somehow Windows already installed the driver for my GPU

I'm just glad this nightmare is over for now, I need this computer for work.
