This is the last thing I can think of. Give this a read through and a try and if it doesn't work I'll help you with the reinstall. MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record

Ok - I'll try this in the morning and let you know the results. I'll have my new HD and stuff ready by tomorrow night (before your morning time on Wednesday). The time difference of 8 hours is pretty difficult.

We have a tutorial for a clean install of 7, I'll link it when needed. Follow that to the letter and you won't go wrong. The cleaning up of your other drives after the install should be pretty straight forward too.

Ok, I tried restoring the MBR and I got the same BSOD.

I'm at a complete loss here I must admit. Give me one last shot, I'll ask some other BSOD bods to drop by and take a look to see if they can see anything I'm missing.

Hi, I have just scanned real quick, so please excuse me if I ask something you have already tried. Use this tutorial on partition wizard and see if you can get a screenshot of your disks. Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD

Also, can you boot from the installation Disk. When you get to the first screen, do not select your language. Hold down the shift Key and press F10, you will get a command prompt. Type diskpart and press enter. It will take it a few seconds but it will reply diskpart, type list disk and press enter. it will show a list of all hard drives in your machine, each one is assigned a number on the left. Find the number for the hard drive windows is installed on and, for example if it was listed as hard drive #1, type select disk 1 and press enter. It will respond that disk #1 is the selected disk. Type list partition and it should show all partitions on the disk. Type detail disk and press enter. Please take a picture of the screen if at all possible. A cell phone picture is fine as long as we can read it. maybe that will show what is wrong. If it will make it easier on you, disconnect 1 wire from every hard drive except the one Windows is installed on. Then it will be select disk 0 instead of 1. To get out of the command prompt, type exit and press enter, you will then still be in the command prompt but at X sources, type exit and press enter again and you will be back at the select your language. Just cancel out if you want.

Hi, I will send the screenshot when I can. But I do remember typing list partitions on all my disks in diskpart. They all only have 1 partition called "Primary".

Unless you made it happen, your Windows disk should have 2 partitions. A 100MB system Reserved and a C partition. The 100 MB system reserved should be named the System partition and be marked active. That should be the only partition marked active unless you have another OS installed.

I recall reading you ran startup repair. Did you try with all other disks removed and inly the Windows disk installed? Run it 3 times and try to restart the computer between each time. It sometimes takes 3 tries for it to write/repair the boot files. It would be helpful to know, if you have a 100 MB system Reserved and is it on the Windows Drive and is it marked active. Hopefully the diskpart and the Partition Wizard screenshot will tell us that.

I am not at home right now but I will take the screenshots of diskpart and post them later.

It could have been my own doing, I'm not sure. When I installed my current Windows 7, it was on a new HD and I did not manually create any partitions on the disk. I have never changed the partitions on any of my drives. I have 3 internal hard drives (you'll see later in the screenshot), 2 of which are ssd.

One thing I always noticed that I didn't think about much until now is that, whenever I emptied the recycle bin, there was a short delay and some clicking noise (sounding like a normal HDD), BUT my Windows is installed on a SSD, so I couldn't explain the noise. So perhaps, my old disk drive has some involvement in the system that they should not have?

If my Windows drive is not partitioned, or is not marked as active, maybe that would be preventing me from loading Windows?
