I'm using a Western Digital Caviar-Blue 500GB hard-drive using SATA, not IDE. Installed Windows 7 on the hard-drive after the D-BAN on my old computer. Boots up fine on the old computer. Then installed it in my new PC and it won't boot, saying that there is a start-up failure. So I decided to put the windows 7 disk in to run startup repair, however that failed and did not do anything.
Installed Linux Fedora Redhat with my old PC to delete all partitions on the disk. Transferred the hard-drive to the new PC with the Linux OS; did not boot/recognize hard-drive.
I was finally able to have Windows 7 installation show my hard-drive through the 'Repair' option, but not through the actual INSTALLATION of the OS itself. Windows Repair found no problems with the hard-drive.
** When trying to INSTALL Windows 7 on the New PC, Windows feeds the error code: 0xE0000100.
I've tried to Google possible solutions, but they seem to be of no luck, as most people are having this issue with only one computer, and they have a dual-boot on the disk, which I do not.
