@zzz2496: I have connected my 500 gb SATA and use the bootlogging. Again, I wasn't able to load the windows. stuck at boot screen. So, I turned the pc off and remove the 500 gb. Then, I turned it on and look at the windows folder to check the ntbtlog. Again, there is no such thing. It only means that windows 7 wasn't able to bootlog. Help!

@theog: How can I disk check if at the first place I can't log on to Windows with my 500 gb SATA?

Open msconfig, check "OS boot information", restart - it should boot with "verbose" mode... (this way windows looks a bit like linux...)

Edit: now you should be able to see when and at what your boot up process stopped...

What exactly do you mean by stuck at boot screen .

Do you mean the Bios POST screen ?

Is that the windows boot menu?

Is it the "starting windows " dancing balls ?

Is it the Wecome screen ?

Is it the Login screen?

Eww... that leaves to the bootlog... you sure you can't find any ntbootlog.txt file...? Or anything that has "log" placed in the filename that ends with .txt...?
