Hello, I have decided to build my own first computer, and am having some problems. A little back story, I bought a laptop from cyberpower PC about 2 years ago, which has a sata HD with windows 7 on it. I also had an old HD from an old Gateway which had windows Vista on it.
So my problem is that after the bios load screen, it attempts to load windows (it shows the windows logo) and then instantly blue screens. It happens with both hard drives.
the windows vista drive your new rig is over specked for vista just on the ram and it wont load. the other drive with windows 7 on it will load if you use f8 safe mode and remove all the drivers under windows system then reboot. if not you have to nuke and pave one of the drives.
