Windows 7: new psu

new psu

Hey guys just installed a new psu gone from a corsair hx520 to a cooler master v750. Everything is installed right, powers up etc, but windows hangs on starting windows. Bios correctly picks up my hd's and pc boots but nothing happens. Lights on the front of the box, hd activity and reset light stay on. Even when i try to reinstall windows it gets stuck at "setup is starting" any ideas?

Update: had to unplug other hds to install windows (never had to do that before) the win setup would just hang until i unplugged other drives. Hopefully i can plug them back in after reinstall.

Re-install the old PSU. If the computer boots fine after, it's not the PSU.

Took me 3 hours before realizing i should try with only 1hd connected. I still wonder why windows hung when i first connected the psu. The psu seems fine as it is working as it should.

Preparing desktop now.

Must have been one of my hdd as the pc boots with the other 3 connected.

If I remember right, a few years ago, I moved the pagefile to that drive, and it also had a boot.ini file on it (for some reason) I wonder if that is the problem (never until now), because when that drive is installed windows hangs at starting windows.
