Sorry, but your replies don't make much sense to me.....
Are you saying you have 7 x HDD, all of which have Windows 7 installed to them? Or is the Windows 7 installation spanned across all the disks? You do not require a reinstallation DVD in order for an HDD to boot.
Please start with the basic problem you are having - its very difficult to work out what your problems are at the moment.
The basic problem is:
I have no HDD where the OS is working without errors
The one thing id like to do now is to Install Win 7 on my only SDD.
In the past yes i had installed the OS on the SSD...
and on another 2 HHDs (aside from the one that came with the PC). The reason i did that was to have a backup in case the OS had trouble in the original HDD
If i get to install a clean and fresh OS in the SSD. Then i would wipe out all the HDDs clean and start over using them in a 4 tray external enclosure and one internal tray.
None of my repair, restore, re install tools are allowing me to make a fresh clean install of the OS
I know i have a few other issues -which are all OS related- and i also think i explained them very clearly too. I only need simple 1...2 3 steps to proceed and maybe succeeed after so many unsuccessful tries
Note 1: out of the 7 HDD and 1 SSD i had the OS on 4 HDDs and the 1 SSD
Note 2: "Or is the Windows 7 installation spanned across all the disks?" << I have no idea what is spanned in that sentence
