Please boot. All still fine? shutdown, and power off. Detach the 465GB Music drive.


boot again (without the 465GB music drive) and do f8->repair your computer. Works.. should work.
Reinstall worked great. Nice new computer again. Put the extra hard drive back in and now seem to be getting random blue screens and the pc reboots itself. Could there still be something wrong with the setup? Hard drive was in perfect working order and has only been unplugged for the system restore.

Is 465GB partition (Music) in state as is always was? All files/folders are still there? No windows folders on it?

Are you 100% sure the system is fine again (without connecting the new harddrive)? Are you sure you did do a factory restore with new hard drive attached before and it was working fine then? Seems impossible to me because the factory restore with new harddrive attached causes all the troubles

Sometimes Recovery is not marked Active in which case the Fkey does this.

Since you can still boot Windows we can help you manually boot the Recovery partition as shown in Boot Recovery Partition using EasyBCD,

but I wouldn't waste any more time with an inferior Factory Recovery with preinstalled bloatware which no tech enthusiast would run in the first place. Instead do a vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 during which you delete all partitions on the target HD to create and format a new one for install, first unplugging the other HD.
