second HDD upgrade => no boot from the system drive anymore

Hello,

I've just upgraded my second (data) drive from 2Tb to 4 Tb, and - oops - the box won't start up anymore! I can see the system drive when running the Win7 disc in rep are mode (I can actually browse the filesystem etc) but that does't help to boot from that disk... What should I check to narrow down the problem? Thanks!

  1. Have you checked the boot priority in BIOS? The first device should be your system HD with windows installed etc OR Windows Boot Manager.

    Check your bios, make sure its set to boot from your system drive.
