Problem with OS load

Have installed an SSD and have along the line done something wrong.

Now the problem with the SSD may be close to being solved but it has left me with a boot that takes forever off the HDD's.

I get the usual posts which eventually lead to the screen in the pic - which I have no idea why has suddenly started happening on all three drives.

Could this be a BIOS problem and if so will setting to default settings be the answer please?.

Of the computers listed in your specs, this computer is which one of those?

Did you install Win 7 to the SSD?

If yes, disconnect all other drives and boot up the system.

The result is ?

Hiyya Karl the machine is my Desk2 and yes I installed the 7 to the SSD (which I think I have got to redo), and when I boot to that SSD it comes up a very basic system with very few feature and no net connectibiltiy and no ability to adjust the monitor screen resolution.

The first install went fine and I have only reinstalled the 7 the second time because it seems a few files and folders have migrated over form the HDD. Now I know it was probably something I did so I did a second reinstall. But to make sure I am going to do a fresh start with the SS again (3rd time) .

The thing is why am I suddenly getting this Load up screen even with the HDD's which takes so long.

The only thing I can think of is that I have a dual boot 7 & 8 but it is set to boot 7 as the first option if 8 is not selected.

I recommend first, without any dual boot, getting Win 7 correct.

After your Win 7 is solid AND after you have 100% updated your Win 7 AND after you have made a system image backup, then you can move on to a dual boot.

When you get ready to install Win 7 to to the SSD, then no other drives connected and use the clean install tutorial to wipe the disk clean. At least use:
At first dialog, shift+ F11
that gets you to a command prompt.
enter following commands
diskpart
list disk
select disk 0
detail disk (just to make sure)
CLEAN (this will overwrite the first couple of sectore with zeros)
exit
exit

now go ahead with the normal Win 7 install procedure.

Ok Karl I am going to set things in motion if I have the time right no as I have to work this pm and might not quite make the complete course.

Thanks for the time and patience mate.

No go Karl have done secure erase, diskpart and OS install three times and the thing will not load any more than a very basic OS.

I cannot get it connect to the net or even get the monitor resolution up to a full 24" screen even though I have installed the catalyst drivers app etc.

So am completely bamboozled as to what the problem is.

The only things I can think of is the OS disk is corrupted somehow, the SSD is not performing to scratch or my mobo has had it.

Plus I still have that annoying Loading operating system screen wit the dots.

how did you run DiskPart?
From within a system, using a System Repair Disc, or using a Win 7 DVD?

Try burning or writing the latest official Win7 installer for your licensed version to DVD or stick then following these steps to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which are the same for retail.

Confirm you have unplugged all other HD's and peripherals.

Reset the BIOS to defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

Next test the RAM for 5-6 passes: RAM - Test with Memtest86+. Try removing a stick to see what happens, then swap it.

If these fail then test the SSD to confirm it's good, if necessary contacting the maker.

Use the drivers in the installer and quickly updated via optional Windows Updates - only importing those which are missing in Device Manager after all updates are done. If these performance problems continue after doing it this way, then import the chipset from computer or Mobo maker's Support Downloads webpage.

John, you need to install all of the drivers for your Motherboard to be able to go online and download your gpu drivers to set res etc etc.

I believe this is your MoBo and drivers for it. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=3654#dl

Ah yes have the OS installed it again and used the Gigabyte disk to get back online and the screen size fixed with the catalyst centre rescale but the boot is still extremely slow with that "Loading operating system" followed by the dots.

I even though I haven't loaded it "speckie" is running (in email) and I haven't downloaded it plus the diskpart I don't know if the partitioning has worked properly or not as I don't have that 1024 partition showing in in Control panel > storage. But it does show in diskpart

But I'll do it all over again until it comes right.
