Welcome to Seven Forums Microhard. Is your primary disc set as the boot device in BIOS? I would expect it to be set where you have SATA 1 (A0) : None. It sounds like your BIOS need to be told what the 1st boot device is.

Advanced BIOS features> Hard Disk Boot Priority

If it is set to boot from optical drive 1st, you can see if it will boot from the install disk as well. A Guy

I went in there and found nothing special except when I try to boot from my CD-ROM, could there be something wrong with my hardware?

Hard Disk Boot Priority

1. Ch5 M. : ST380811AS
2. Ch3 M. : ST3500320AS
3. Bootable Add-in Cards

Which HD did you install Windows 7 on ? the large HD or the small HD ? Are they both SATA HD's ?


I can't understand why you can't see change Boot order options in BIos, ????

Did you install windows 7 in the SATA drive with additionally installing SATA drivers?? If not, you should disable SATA and enable IDE and load.

I too have a SATA disk, but didnt install the SATA drivers when asked by Win 7. So, disabled SATA and enabled IDE and installed.

After installation, I enabled SATA in BIOS and Win 7 doesnt want to boot. The same error message you see.

All BIOS has the option of changing the boot disk priority, you should further drill down all options/menu's under your BIOS.

All the best!!

DocBrown - I have installed Windows 7 on ST380811AS and both of the drives are SATA. I could change the boot order but the only choices are 1. Ch5 M. : ST380811AS 2. Ch3 M. : ST3500320AS 3. Bootable Add-in Cards

dre@ms - Still trying your method

Can you try plugging the ST380811AS SATA cable into SATA 1 (A0) on the motherboard ?

Whichever drive you wish to instal 7 on really should be in Sata Port 0 or 1, as DocBrown is suggesting. (however your MOBO labels the first port)

In advanced option there should be a setting for Hard Disk Boot priority. Where you can tell it which HD to boot 1st.
Not to be confused with Boot Order, I/E 1.CD ROM ---> then 2. HD ((this will be the HD you choose as 1st boot priority in HD section))


If you want AHCI, its a bit easier to install Windows 7 with it enabled on that machine.
But, if you install in IDE, you can still switch via reg. hack.


Seeing as you installed the OS on a differnt PC, you may need to do a repair install.

Guys I made progress! I have successfully changed the order by manually relocating the disk

IDE Channel 0 Master [ None]
IDE Channel 0 Slave [ None]
SATA 1 (A0) [ST380811AS]
SATA 2 (A1) [ None]
SATA 3 (B0) [ST3500320AS]
SATA 4 (B1) [ None]

Now I have this problem
