I remember seeing this when I installed however I was told it was not needed so I deleted it. This could be my problem but why would IDE still work and not ACHI?
*Also I still couldnt even get to this point when I had AHCI selected, I had to change to IDE before I could even get to the screen where I select where to install my hard drive

And I have a 2 Tb hard drive also connected but i did not format or even have that one plugged in when I installed the OS. That one is not even in my boot order I just use it for storage essentially

So format again but dont delete the 100mb partition for the boot manager and make sure you have ahci selected in your bios and not ide. This is just the easiest way to do it rather than doing the repair.If you want to repair just boot up from the dvd like usual but select repair instead of install.

I would have done that a while ago but when I first installed windows I could not even get to that part without changing it to IDE first. That is why I am hesitant to do it. I guess I have tried everything else though

Where's Sean Webster when you need him? biggrin.gif

Are the disks basic disks or dynamic disks? I accidently formatted a drive to dynamic, and it gave me lots of problems.

New problem.....I reinstalled windows 7 and had ahci selected and didn't delete the 100 mb partition however when I install my drivers and need to restart it won't boot because the proper boot device is not selected so I go into bios and it is not recognizing my ssd as a boot option (which I installed os on)
