I reconnected all cables so I can get a cleaner looking pc.

Now when I turned it on I get the
windows 7 startup repair.

It doesn't work and it turns off.

Before I reconnected all cables - everything worked perfectly

What can be the problem here?

Did I re-connect some cables in the wrong place? (I'm not 100% sure I did)

Is it because I reconnected the SATA cables in different spots? My motherboard has 4 which I can use and I connected my SSD, HDD, and CD/DVD ROM to it.

Please help.

I can open the UEFI Setup at the begining with DEL. it is set to boot from the SSD first. And that's where I installed Windows.

I have a Silverstone Raven RV02 and AsRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 mobo

Your motherboard has 6 SATA connectors .

Two of them use a different controller chip [and thus need a different driver ]

Try your hard drive in the other SATA ports

Yea and 2 of them are hidden by my GTX 680.

But yea that was the problem. The SSD was in the wrong SATA port. Everything works now :bounce: 
Thank you!
