Sorry to spam. I have the sata set to ahci in the bios. I also have the hdd plugged into sata6G 1 brown.
I should also note that I had a different chip all together before with this same HDD. I had an amd phenon II quad core and I changed the mobo and the cpu.... Would that completely stop windows from booting??
Looks like it's plugged in the correct port. So that's good. Try changing the SATA configuration to IDE. It might be that your AMD setup had it in that which would mean why its BSOD during start up.
That might just be a BIOS bug. I had the same thing happen with my RIVE even though I had a fan connected in the CPU fan header. You might want to update the BIOS if you haven't done so already.
