Windows 7: Booting Problem

Ive run Western Digitals Diagnostics tests and a few other drive tests i googled for and all have come back saying he drives are fine.....................however i did make this thread a few weeks back and may shed a bit more light:-
IDE wont boot and SATA too slow

However since that thread i have wiped the 2 drives and just using the one SATA with the OS installed.

After a bit of online searching is was suggested to me that my 'Cavier Green' Drives only spin at a rate of 5400rpm compared to a 'normal' drive of 7200rpm, so your spin drive theory could be telling?

I have also got another PSU on order as a past problem with my Graphics Card showed me i only have 18Amps on the 12+ rail and maybe under powering a few items so my new one is 40Amps.

Are your SATA drivers up to date? That's not going to fix the cold boot problem, but would be worth checking.

I think they are but how can i tell, as i think Windows downloaded and installed them for me, i dont remember ever getting them from the WD site for example?

You would either get them from Asus or from Intel. Are you using the Intel or the JMicron SATA from the motherboard?

This looks like your product page:

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards - ASUS P5QL-E

The drivers there are old - I would look for something newer, if available.

Check where the drive is connected on the motherboard and you can figure out which driver you need. Personally, I would use the Intel controller and go for the Intel drivers:

EDIT: Corrected SATA options!

From the intel link you gave i selected:-
Product family Storage Products
Product line Serial ATA Controllers
Product name Intel® 31244 PCI-X to Serial ATA Controller

It then says select Operating System but Windows 7 isnt listed.

So really not sure which driver i should be choosing?

I hunted around but couldn't find anything newer than the release date of Win 7, so you probably have the best driver available already. It would be worth it to make sure that the drive is actually hooked to the Intel controller and not the JMicron. My housemate has an ASUS P6T with the same dual-controller options (newer hardware versions) and her machine did MUCH better off the Intel controllers than on the JMicron.

Hello!

I haven't read the rest of this thread, you are already getting excellent help, but I shall just explain this error. SFC has encountered a big corruption above its pay rate, which it cannot fix. Logs have been created up to this point, but to analyse the actual reason for the failure, a complete analysis of the CBS.log is required. There are many, many reasons for this error. My first bit of advice would be to re-run SFC. Sometimes with a few re-runs, you can push the percentage up and up, eventually reaching 100%. If we need to, I can also look at your CBS.log.

Thanks!

Does it make any difference if you physically disconnect the other drives?

@profdlp As far as i know there connected to the Intel Controller, on the MB itself there's only 6-SATA ports to connect to and the image below is from Device Manager, showing Intel.

@niemiro I'm re-running it again now and will report back if the% gets any higher.
**EDIT**
No joy im afraid, have run it several times now, and it doesnt go higher then 48%

@Dwarf I havent unplugged the other drives as yet, but will do so to check if problem is the same as when they are connected.

What i have noticed is that if i shut PC down and leave for say 5-10mins(which i just tried) it does boot up ok first time, it seems when its left for a longer period i.e overnight i get the booting trouble.

Hi gpu,

It maybe worth trying to find this file and attaching it here so someone could look at that.
