Windows 7: Boot disk error with cloned win 7 64 bit on ssd - why?

Boot disk error with cloned win 7 64 bit on ssd - why?

Hi guys.

I installed my sandisk pulse ssd 256gb sata iii on my sata ii moo via pcie sata iii card. every now and then I get the boot disk error messages - CTRL-AL-DEL to restart . I set it as my primary disk boot and disabled the wd blue from appearing on bios hasrd disk selection (which also has os installed)

I know I don't get sata iii speed on my mobo but am more worried about boot disk error messages.

any fix for this? should I reinstall my win 7 ultimate 64 bit upgrade on the ssd and start afresh? at the same time save all data to external hdd and wipe the OS clean off the wd 500gb - then copy all music and sundry back to the wd blue?

I plan to get windows 8 asap while the upgrade version is on offer till end of January 2013.

after my hardware plan works will a clean install of windows 8 pro upgrade wipe my ssd clean fixing the problem?

please help and merry xmas and happy new year

Check your BIOS manual for setting to boot via PCIe sata card, for Windows 8 will need full support to via PCIe sata card.

If you are going to install Win 8 in the next month, I would just go ahead and do that now. It might solve all of the problems you are having with Win 7.

I don't know if the version of Win 8 they give you allows for a Clean Install or you have to upgrade from Win 7. You will be much better to do a Clean Install if possible. That is what I did when I got my SSD. It just makes for a all around better install. I wish you luck on the build and when you get it done, there is a section on here to post pictures of new rigs. You will have to post yours.

thanks. I will do my best to keep her nice and tidy- especially the wiring part as the new mobo will have two extra case fan headers on pwm I hope and think. need to check online manual again.
