New Install of Win 7 errors?!

I just installed win7 64 on a laptop with new hard-drive. Upon restarting or after I shut down periodically when I start the system back up I get a Windows Error recovery message saying run windows repair/Start windows normally or Windows Boot Manager error?! Ran the repair and it said windows could not repair this computer? Also ran a test on the drive with WD Diagnostic tool and no problems were found? This is driving me crazy!!

Any help would be appreciated!

Set bios to defaults, disable UEFI if it has it, only use Legacy boot.

If you don`t see any UEFI options in the bios, then it doesn`t have it.

Its a Brand New WD HD. I ran a test on it with WD tools and no errors were found.

Also I wiped the drive earlier and reinstalled win 7 and had the same error messages popping up?
And it's not everytime I start up.

Are you following the steps in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7, particularly how drivers are best handled in Win7? This can make the difference.

Which drivers are missing after all Windows Updates are done? Enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) to Check for Updates now, install all Important and Optional with requested reboots until there are no more offered.

If you've varied much from the steps in tutorial then I'd do it over. Win7 is not installed like XP.

I'll try that Tutorial, I've never had this problem before installing Win 7 on desktops or laptops until now that's why its driving me crazy!
