Why do you only make random statements in reply to carefully thought-out steps which have been given you?

Done, reset the BIOS by using the method 1 in BIOS settings. Then made new partition and installed windows Vista succesfully....But the installation still took a good one hour. The comp was running very slow after the installation too. I would click the start button and it would bug and freeze for a 3 mins. Rebooted once and it took hours to load Windows.... I dont understand using an Intel Pentium CPU g620, 3m Cache, 2.60ghz with 8gb of ram ...
And thats not over.... I still got the same error as previously...asking me to pick run windows normally or safe mode....Both didnt work... Blackscreen and nothings loading.

Remove all but 2GB ram for the install. Put it back when done.

yes yes the thing is its not letting me do anything. Either i lag hardcore and it takes years to open something or i reboot, get the same error, lose everything and have to reformat.

How could you connect 2 power wires to a hard drive? Impossible.

Some older Sata HD Drives have two power sockets.
