Windows 7: Hard drive thrashing upon shutdown

24 Jan 2011   #11

windows 7 ultimate 32 bit

Sorry, I meant that I didn't understand the cause and was just trying to throw out some more ideas. I did update the bios successfully as well as the Sata Controller on the board.

At this point I'm going to try to simplify the problem by doing a fresh install of Win 7 and letting that take up the whole drive. I'm wondering if that EasyBCD program was causing some problems w/ the dual boot setup.

I'll report back
