windows 7
Win 7 doesn't see my other sata drives

My Vista system drive crashed so I decided to install Windows 7. I disconnected my data drives, removed the crashed drive and I installed a new sata drive and the install went without a problem.

When I went to hook up my old sata drives one at a time (to identify them) I would start windows 7 and it just gets to the start screen and hangs.
If I unplug the drive and reboot, it works fine. It doesn't matter which of the 3 extra drives I hook up, if I hook any of them up, win 7 won't start.

I can see all the drives in setup just fine.

Any ideas before I uninstall win 7 and reinstall Vista?
