Error \Device\Harddisk1\DR1 - DR4 Then It just Directs me to Desktop


Okay, I just recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate. When It done installing, Then I tpye my username and password. Then The error Appears "Error \Device\Harddisk1\DR1 - DR4" Then i click Continue. Redirects me to Desktop. Then I intalled the Wireless Adapter, Its just randomly freezes, When ever i do something (Like 5- 10 Minutes)




I know its XP. It should Say Windows7 7 Because I don't feel like restarting it again.


Windows 7 Ulimate Clean Install.

Thanks.

First thing I would do is read this.
How to Distinguish a Physical Disk Device from an Event Message
to get a better idea of the exact nature of your problem.
If you have a usb device like a printer connected. I would remove it for the time being.

Well the first thing I notice is your disk is reporting as hdd1 instead of hdd0 which is the typical boot location.
Anything is guess work since I don't know what your harddrive profile looks like.
Does the machine boot properly if you choose Safe Mode

Okay, Wait, I'm going to reboot in Safe Mode. To see if anything happens

ah okay I was thinking you were in 7 this whole time. Okay you're booting the xp side.
I think you need to have a go at startup repair.

Yeah I was using XP, Because Windows 7 Just freezes.

Okay, I went on Safe Mode:

Everything Looks Fine. Then I reboot again to Normal Windows 7, It just freezes after 5 minutes.


So I do the Startup Repiar?
