The HDD is from my old computer and has Windows 7 installed already.
When I boot the computer it shows the glowing spheres of the Windows 7 logo come together for 3 seconds, stops, and then reboots. After rebooting it gives me the options of Startup Repair or to start normally.
I am not exactly sure what is going on here. I followed the manual that came with the MoBo and can't seem to find anything wrong. The MoBo correctly detects the CPU and RAM(More or less because it detects it at 1333) when I am in the BIOS. I switched out the HDD with another HDD I own to see if it was the HDD's fault, and got the same result.
Hi, thanks for the quick reply. No I installed the OS myself. Using the Windows Repair tool does not yield any results. It just sits there and says "repairing problem" or something. I shut it off after 2 hours. Do you think this could be a hardware issue?
The BIOS already detects the HDD, I am unable to boot from the drive completely. When I boot from the drive it shows the Windows 7 logo for about 3 seconds and then crashes. I replicated this result on another HDD too.
