Tell me if you need more hardware info and ill try to comply.
The problem is that I cannot install windows 7 or xp on my sata hdd. The old ide hd still works and when i use that i can enter windows, it is just the new one that refuses to coorporate and keeps making the system reboot before I enter windows, when I am seeing the windows logo waiting screen (this leads me to think it might be a driver issue and the windows repair even mentions something about this in a rapport, it just cannot do anything about it).
The strange thing is that I took the hdd up to my friend, where he was able to install windows 7 on it. Then I took it home and it worked fine for the evening, I install a few necessary programs and gamed some sc2. But the next morning the pc started doing the exact same thing.
So if it really is a driver problem, how do I fix it? And if it is not, what can I do ?
More aboutreboot loop sata enter windows
first you have to figure out if it's the drive or the MB: try another drive and see if it works for longer than a day let your friend run the drive and see if it works longer than a day for him
if it's the drive replace it if it's the mb you can reset the bios, try a different sata port, try a different cable, and as a last resort reflash the bios
Well, it is working now since I stopped automatic updates for windows. But I still have no clue what caused the error first time around.
But thanks for trying to help 505090, I appreciate it. I will come again, if the problem arrives again
