Windows 7: Windows Explorer Crashes Repeatedly, playing games or Youtube videos

Then yes, I am indeed running 1.11 on both OCZ Vertex2.

Attachment 247259

Just possible more info as I was looking into my BIOS:
OCS-VERTEX2
Block Mode: 16 sectors
PIO MODE: 4
ASYNC DMA: MULTIWORD DMA-2
ULTRA DMA: ULTRA DMA-5

I tried using both SSDs as primary boot devices but get same message for boths:
"Reboot and select proper Boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"
(the message for ine of the SSD is normal since no system on D, but my C? ...)

Anyway, that's it!! So i'll upgrade Firmware using your link now!
Although I need to save all the data? 0.0 ...

EDIT: Ok. I checked all my drives. Because my WD 1TO used to be the holder of my System on my previous computer but I did format it. So indeed, no trace of Windows, system32, whatsoever.

Also, I cannot perform an upgrade on my Vertex. as you can see below

In the end, what remains to be done, stop instant crashes on boot after login (no BSOD), just unlimited freeze.
And... it is not dangerous or remotely important, but I'd like to understand why in the BIOS, my C drive cannot be selected as a proper boot device but my computer still boots from my C: since it's the only System available on my drives.

If you would, would you please show a screenshot of your disk management so the top and bottom part is visible.

Edit: I'm reading this post at the moment, to try understand how upgrading FW works http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/fo...=primary+drive

If I clearly understand what is being said:

If I boot Windows off the SSD, then try to update that SSD with the toolbox, it won't work. My other SSD will update fine with the toolbox, just not the drive that I am executing Windows off.
If I boot Windows off a 3rd hard drive, then I can update both SSD's with the Toolbox.

The Toolbox cannot update the SSD that I am running the Windows version you are in off that drive.

Quite problematic considering the fact that I do not have my Windows DVD here. I cannot install Windows on my E drive.

No. Right click computer, select manage, expand the window completely, in the left column select disk management. Click the start button, type snipping, open the snipping tool, use the arrow on the side and make a picture, save it to your desktop and upload it with your next post. This is what I would like to see.

As I suspected. Your System Reserved that the system boots from is on your Western Digital drive and your 'C' drive is on the SSD. This can cause a lot of problems. That is if I can read French correctly, which I can't. But, I believe that's what it says.

Yes... I can see the mess... My install is now what... maybe 1.5 yr old... and it is messy. But then I do not understand...
All the System files "Windows" "System32" etc are located on my C, OCZ Vertex2. So... What does that mean?

I'm so lost >.<

Is there any way besides formatting and reinstalling my OS that I can solve this issue?

Are the freezes on boot linked to that? Cuz the freezes have been happening only for a month now or so.

There is a way to try. I can't promise we can fix it, but there is a way that works most of the time. Would you rather try, or would you rather do a clean install, which will be necessary if the attempt does not work.

There are 2 tutorials here that you will have to follow exactly to remove the partition. I would back up all personal data first. I would also disconnect 1 of the cables from all drives except the one with the 100MB partition and the SSD with the C drive on it. That will keep you from getting confused as to which one it is. Basically, you are going to delete the 100MB partition from the Western Digital drive, which will make the system un bootable. Then you are going to have to try to get the install disk to write a new system partition drive to the C drive so the system will then be bootable. For help in the future. Always disconnect all hard drives except the one you are installing Windows to. That will make this impossible to happen.

The second tutorial is linked to in this tutorial. Read them first and let me know if you have any questions. System Reserved Partition - Delete
