Old one is SATA2. New one is sata3
Thx
So you connected the cloned drive to sata3 port instead of sata2 port? sata3 drivers are in clone as well?
Here is what I did..
Original SATA2 drive on SATA0 (original location)
Original SATA2 second disk on SATA1 (original location)
New SATA3 disk on SATA4 (removed a CDROM drive and put it here)
Cloned SATA0 to SATA3
turned machine off and put new disk in SATA0 spot
It booted into Windows, installed what looked like the driver for the new HDD and then asked for a restart.
Once it restarted, it starts the Win7 logo and then BSOD's on the 7b
(happens on 2 identical NEW WD10EZEX's....)

Set the SATA3 HDD to SATA2 mode, using the jumper setting.

Check the manufacturer's website for the jumper settings.

Did not work......I followed all the steps in Auto mode...It only took about 5 seconds....I applied the changes...rebooted and failed at 7b again....I even ran the Boot Repair part of Paragon against the drive after I rebooted a second time...no luck..

I set the jumpers to 5-6 to no avail...Failed as well

thanks guys for the help but something is just not right.....Something about the first boot after the restore, and Windows adds some driver when it recognizes the new drive and after the required reboot fails with a 7b....every time

Please post back a camera snap of your drive map on Disk Director or bootable Partition Manager.

If the original had System Reserved booting Win7 then SysReserved partition should be Partition Marked Active while you run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times. All other drivers must be unplugged or it will not repair.

If C is marked System on original Win7 then set it Active and run the 3 repairs with all other HD's unplugged.

Most imaging suites ask if you want to preserve Track1 and keep the OS partition Active when transferring.

If these fail, cut your losses by doing a Clean Install Windows 7 with only the target HD plugged in.

i guess i should have been more specific....
Disks H&I are my secondary Samsung 1TB drive.
Throughtout this whole ordeal, they have not changed from that...
only Disk 1 in both pictures are the different drives...

I took the good drive (640GB)(picture 1) and cloned it to the WDC drive (non working)(Disk 1)
I then tried to boot it alongside the Disk2 Samsung drive..
I also tried to boot it alone..both resulted in BSOD 7b

when i put my 640GB disk 1 back in the system it works fine....

I tried running the Startup Repair 3x and it failed with a Bad Driver message and still got a 7b...
and if you look close you can see the active flag on Drive C in both pics..

This one looks unsolveable and I am about to just try a fresh Win7 install as much as I dont want to..

If your OS is on a logical drive then you need an active system reserved primary partition. I can't recall if Dell or HP use their recovery partition as active to perform this boot function. Your screenshots don't appear to show the active status of your partitions. Windows Disk Management will show this.

Two issues: Upgrade install of W7x86 fails and W7x64 fails to clean install
Clean installing W7 x86 is no problem. But 1) upgrading Vista x86 to W7 x86 fails and automatically rolls back to Vista, and 2) attempt to clean install W7 x64 results in BSOD when rebooting to finalize the process. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
