I can plug the drives in while Windows 7 is running and the drive is recognized and appears. It installed drivers upon the first plugin. But if I restart without changing anything, I get BSOD. I tried moving the DVD from E to H since that is how I had it setup in Vista and that did not change anything. The three drives should show up as E, F, and G. All are connected to the Intel SATA chipset on a Gigabyte GA-X48-DQ6 motherboard. There are no exclamation markes for the controller in Device Manager. I also tried turing off all autostart functions when new drives are inserted. Note that I am able to plug in a removable SATA drive via USB adapter (drive R) and leave it plugged in through a restart without trouble.
This setup ran fine in Vista 32. My Windows 7-64 install is on a clean formatted drive. This is the Release version of Windows 7-64 (it was released to OEMs on Oct 12). All Windows 7 updates have been applied through Windows Update.
couple of things. could you go into c:\windows\minidumo, zip the dump file (*.dmp) and upload it to us. If its not there try searching for *.dmp
Second. Are you using the same cable when you plug the last drive in? (bad wire, socket,?)
can you tell us about your computer so we know what hardware you have
