Windows 7: Cant Install Windows 7

Cant Install Windows 7

I have two HDD(200GB Samsung(8 MB Buffer) and 500 GB Segate(16 MB Buffer)).I recently bought the 500 GB HDD.During the installation I chose a 30 GB drive of my 200 GB HDD(During the selection of partition at the initial stage).Then I got an error like.."Partition cannot be selected or location of partition not found". Then I disconnected the 500 GB HDD.Now there was no error and I installed Win7 on the 30 GB partition on the 200 GB drive.

Will there be any considerable perfomance difference when Installed on HDD with 8 MB cache and 16 MB cache ?

Your HD is always going to be the bottleneck, but I cant tell you untill we know alot more abt you system specs. A snip of the disk management would help too ( if you dont know how ask us).
