OK, I disconnected my external HDD and removed it from the boot priority, then I uninstalled the optical drive and disconnected it. Rebooted and still blue screens (and reboots automatically) while loading windows.
Could it have anything to do with Intel RST (rapid storage technology), it is in my dock and shows the DVD-rom as am ATAPI device?
Also I was just looking at my system configuration and it shows my boot drive as device/harddiscvolume 2, but when I look at my SSD (which is my boot drive in the BIOS) it is Drive #0. Seems odd to me.
Sorry if I am way off base. I am new to windows 7. I have been using a mac for the last 6 years. Just made the switch back. thanks for trying to help me through this too.
