It may take 3 times for Startup Repair to fully fix the problem.

I'll use this if all else fails with any windows fixes, commands, or hardware connection actions I may do first. Wouldn't that be a prudent order?

No dice with multiple times on startup repair (3+). I tried to repair it five times now and still the same thing: Black screen with cursor after the microsoft logo appears with flying colored balls coming together for windows startup. Still no safe mode and tried many of cursor commands including

bootsect/nt60 ALL/force
bootrec.exe/fixmbr
bootrec.exe/fixboot
bootrec.exe/rebuildbcd
bootsect/nt60 E:\

Nothing. I'm still dead in the water and now I'm wondering if I should re-install, but I don't know how to get all my info off my hard drive without being able to get to windows. If anyone has any ideas before doing a reinstall I'd welcome any and everything.

I also reseated my memory. Tried booting with only one stick in a slot with each stick too. Nothing. I unplugged both hard drives and booted with each. Of course the system wouldn't boot with the OS on the one hard drive, but it didn't make a difference when I unplugged the other. I'm running out of ideas here.

If I reinstall windows altogether on the one drive it was on, I won't lose any data on the other will I? Also, I won't have to reinstall any hardware drivers will I once I do a windows reinstall? I'm to the point where no one is helping me much and I don't know of anything else to do that I havn't tried already or wasn't mentioned by others to do besides a complete re-install.

Ok, I'm not really sure I understand, but I was able to look at my drives under "load drivers" in recovery options.

With both hard drives plugged in it reads:

"Windows 7 on E: Local Disk"

E: 320 G Local Disk Samsung
C: Old Disk 200G WD
D: System Reserved 99MB (partition?)
X: Boot
F: DVD
A: 3.5" Floppy (which I don't even have)

When I unplug the Western Digital 200G HD that is my old disk off my previous computer it reads the following on Recovery Options screen:

"Windows 7 on D: Local Disk
D: Local Disk 320 G Samsung drive
X: Boot
C: 99 MB System Reserved (is this the partition?)
E: DVD
A: 3.5" Floppy (which I never had in ever)

When I contacted my builder yesterday he stated that he put Windows seven on the C: drive. This isn't jiving though is it? Shouldn't the Samsung drive be on drive C: as he stated? With both HDs plugged in why is it telling me it is finding Windows 7 on Drive E: instead of C:. Furthermore, why is my old disc (the 200G western digital) labelled as C when both units are plugged in? If this were true and my builder installed it on C: it should boot from my Old disk, but when I unplug my samsung drive it will not even attempt to boot, so clearly it must be on the samsung drive. I'm confused.

On another note, I was able to extract my data off my old disk (Western Digital 200G) by taking it out and hooking it up to my laptop to get everything I need from it. So, I'm thinking of wiping both drives and starting anew. Unless of course someone's got a bright idea I havn't tried yet.
