Just tried that, it's still doing the same

I burned mine a 2x speed so it's working fine, plus when I had XP on my SATA and Windows 7 on my IDE I didn't get any problems.

Tried that just before, but it didn't detect any problems so it didn't fix anything.

I'll get easyBCD back onto XP and try it out, looks like it's going to be the only way to fix it.
How crap is that though! I have to resort to using another parties software just to get Windows 7 to boot as the primary device on my PC.
