Windows 7: Win 7 didnt like two SATA HD at once

Win 7 didnt like two SATA HD at once


This afternoon i tried connecting two sata drives, one seagate drive and the second a Fujitsu laptop drive that i was going to back up, i checked the install HD was the first drive but when I booted windows a message displayed that a change on hardware generated an error.

I selected the first option and after that windows boot locks up at Starting Windows.

when i restar there is an option to run the repair program but that does not help at all

Anyone knows what could have been the problem?

originally i had one sata drive and one IDE drive plus two DVD/CD units, then i only left the two sata drives when this error appeared.

I tried leaving everything back to normal but that did not worked.

My Motherboard is kinda old its a Via P4M900MW-L made by MSi
