  1. Did you do a fresh windows installation or did you transfer an old hdd to the new pc and left the files as is?
  2. i did a fresh install im using a sata hdd

    It's probably not this, but try going into BIOS as you boot and watching your CPU temps for awhile.

    It's strange that it won't boot. Maybe the HDD is bad. What does scandisk say?
  4. Disable hault on errors in bios or none or second make two partitions the first 10gb and put windows on the second partition
  5. I had the same issue with an Asus bd when I had my second SATA drive plugged in, and when I had just the primary, I had no problems. Supposedly SP2 made adding drivers unecessary at the preload, but I have also seen statements where people had to go that route. If you have 2 drives, disconnect one, and retry boot. If it works, try getting any native drivers from MB company (great Intel), and load at preload question where it asks for any Raid drivers. Why this still happens I don't know but it has worked in many cases I have read.
