What were the results of the diagnostic test? Did the drive get a clean bill of health after running the full diagnostic?

If yes, then that makes me wonder about the Windows 7 installation disk. Is it a retail disk, or one that you burned? Could be a bad download or a bad burn.

The test was fine. The disc is fine I used it on other 120/250 & 320 hdd to check if I was missing something with the larger 750 hdd. Which is leading me back to the bios change. But I cannot find the update anywhere. Thanks again for the help.

It shows in diagnostics test as the full 698gb/750gb, also in disk management where I have assigned it a letter so I can now see it from my computer. But still shows 7.9gb from the installation disk.

Hi beautiful people, Currently im using a 60gb partition for windows 7 32 bits ultimate in a SATA HD (AIHC mode), i've been told in the past that it is not recommended to use the entire HD as one partition cause slows the system (the needle works more), is that still true?
