No go. Just happened again except the time remained current. I'm not sure if it has something to do with the SSD but nothing in my system has been changed other than that.

Odd, usually it is the battery when the system clock gets reset, is the system overclocked? Are you running an intensive app? Could a program be shutting it down. Power surge?

lol, delete the OS partition and the system reserve partition on the HDD, if you need to back up the data first then make a partition for the personal files in the drive and copy them over, then delete the old partitions on the HDD.

check the power cord too, switch it out or it may not be pushed in all the way and it got moved by the wind or something... and replace the CMOS just in case.

 

and delete the old OS install :D.

Thanks again.

When I unplug the HDD, windows boots fine. When I unplug the SSD and plug in the HDD I get the same error mentioned above. So it's a problem with the HDD. I'll do some troubleshooting and see if it works.

Ok, here. Disconnect the SSD from the system, replug in the HDD. Then boot up the install disc. Then get to the formatting options under custom install. Then delete the system reserve partition on the HDD that way , then reset up your system again how you like it and you should be able to boot fine and have no issue from the HDD.

You can even disable the eSATA 3 if you want.
items marked with SSD/HDD should be done to systems with the OS drive being a SSD or a HDD. Items marked with SSD only should only be done to the systems that have a SSD as the OS drive as well as the other stuff.
For example...
You install the OS onto a HDD, only do the steps marked SSD/HDD
You install the system on a SSD then do the steps marked SSD/HDD and SSD only.
Use this: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool
Umm, did you erase the previous install off the HDD?

Thanks for the quick response. So If I understand your answer correctly, in my case I do both steps because I will be installing the OS on the SSD and using the HDD for other storage. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Since the OS is going on your SSD yes you do both. smile.gif

System restore didn't work, but when I switched for ACHI to IDE the HDD worked (plugged in on its own, no ssd). So now I'm back on my computer and its like it was before I tired installing the SSD.

So now I'm going to remove Win 7 from the HDD and save whatever I need in a partition. Any useful links on how to do that?
