First thing I'd do is make sure you don't have a defective hard drive. You can run the WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows to check for hard drive problems.

WD Support / Downloads / SATA & SAS / WD Caviar Green / GP

If the hard drive checks OK I'd try going through the troubleshooting steps prepared by one of our Forum experts.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS update to handle larger HD's.

Did you follow these basic principles to get a perfect Clean Reinstall which are the same for retail?
