I am updating my system and have run into an issue.
My new board is an ASRock FM2A75M-DGS FM2 AMD A75
Bringing in my old primary 750GB newly partitioned with 3 partitions - XP / Win7 / Shared - Works fine.
I bring in my media drive from another computer 1.5TB, used to have 2 partitions - Win7 / Media - deleted Win7 partition and filled in the rest.
When I boot with just the first one goes into Windows fine, add the second one, chaos. Windows doesn't load.
In Windows 7 I get a black screen with a white cursor. Oddly enough it worked when there was a third single partition drive running along side.
I can hook up the drive to usb with an adapter and it runs fine. I've tried different SATA cables and different SATA ports, nada.
Yes, I have made sure the drive with the OS was first.
What I can generally see is maybe to reformat the second drive, which means backing up 1TB of data.
Anyone know of another way or something else I can try? Thanks
