The hard drive is partitioned with partion magic (C:/ - 100GB and H:/ - 150GB)
Windows 7 run on H:\ and Windows XP run on C:\
CF

How bid is your pagefile? do you have indexing running on alot of files? when the HD light goes solid could you check how much ram available in taskmanager?

Same problem here

Hello Sevenforum users ,

Same problem here , it started with clean x64 7100 build and now with x64 7264, tried to find an answer to this problem for a few weeks, but now I have enough of this. All not needed HDDs disconnected, but I found out that every time this lag occour there is some service logging to the system. I will not copy & paste more info cause I have customized build with Polish language pack.

But all you have this problem will find out some info in EventViewer / Security section.

If you have all files and folders visible its probably on C:\,. If not its in cpanel>system>advanced>perforance>settings>advanced.

I think it is primarily a AHCI issue. Installing Intel Matrix Storage Manager fixed it for me.
Choose a similar driver depending on your motherboard chipsets and try again.
Hope this helps.
