After the first boot, I get the message "Disk read error, press CTRL+DELETE".
I do have an access to the HD, see the files but it won't boot.
Just the one question, is it the ONLY drive in the system? On the first boot after Windows install the drive letters are defaulted to the physical order in which the drives are connected to the controller, and that can change the boot drive drive away from C: if it was not the first physical drive. Fresh installs should always be done with just one drive connected.
