Boot secure was the first thing I took off, sorry I didn't mention it. I have tried to run a OCZ SSD (Sata II) with the firmware updated, as soon as I power up it takes me straight to bios, and if I exit, it takes me right back to bios. I'm using the latest bios. I can take the standard hdd to my desktop install windows 7 using my disc, no problem. On this laptop, just hangs.
