First, I want to thank everyone who helped me work through this. Every comment was thoughtful and meaningful, and everyone was very patient walking me through each step, so thank you!

So I decided to remove my 1TB SATA 6Gb/s HD and install the new 500GB SATA 3Gb/s one and installed 7 on the new drive. There were zero issues, everything loaded perfectly and cleanly, and I’ve been running it for several hours now with no crashing. I think I had a bad HD, SATA 6Gb/s cable, or motherboard port. (my new project is to figure out which)

Everything is running very fast, and no problems. Installed all my updates and much of the software I want.

I'd say that the 1TB SATA HDD is faulty, bad sectors, etc...

Glad you got the problem fixed!

Let us know if you need anything else.
