I have just recently upgraded my computer's case, power supply and added a new SATA Hard disk drive. The new hard drive is the exact same model as my first (Seagate 320GB).
BIOS can detect my two hard drives and I have set my first one to Master in the BIOS settings. However I am no longer able to log into Windows (It just stops after a long while on the Windows loading screen). When I try to load windows under Safe Mode, I get the error (after a long wait) "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM".
I've loaded my Windows recovery CD, and while it can detect that I have 3 partitions in my older drive (this is correct), it cannot detect the drive letters (all of these are set to '-').
I have tried resetting my CMOS. The problem still persists. Any ideas, or suggestions? Thanks very much for your help guys!
