i ran my win7 cd and if i go through install i am able to see the drive, but if i try to repair from that drive it doesnt recognize a partition. I am just going to try to reinstall, I was due for it anyway
Ill let you know how it does. Still not understanding why such trouble to swap a vid card, never had issues before.
In the process of trying to figure out what my pcs issue was i noticed that my sata speed was set to auto seeing as i had a 320gb and 2 1TB WD Black editions. it was only running at 3.0gb/s wow what a difference after I switched it to 6GB/s . windows installed in no time flat!. I have since removed the 320 drive as I wasnt using it anyway! Thank you for all your time and patience.
