Windows 7: A Virtual Hard Drive? Two separate hard drives now run Win 7 x64

18 Nov 2011   #11

WIN 7 PRO x64

to HUDE again, I said that I ASSUMED that it might be the new motherboard due to the wide range of problems that I had experienced, It was not. Sometimes when everything goes wrong and we ASSUME that we did everything correctly we start looking at other possibilities too soon. It's best to stay focused on the most likely possibility and not go looking at every possible thing that seldom happens.

Remember that assume means 'makes an A$$ of U and ME'. so don't worry about everything.

If you feel that overclocking may caused the problem, then reset your MB to it's safest defaults in the BIOS.

However, please at least find out what type of hard drives you have.
