Windows 7: Must pull cmos battery for 7 64bit to start up but not XP

Upload the bugcheck report from your bluescreen crashes to the Crashes & Debugging forum where the real geniuses hang out: https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

They'll be able to tell you quickly what is causing the crashes.

Are you booting either OS via the BIOS boot menu key or BIOS Boot order, or do you have a Windows Dual Boot menu configured? It might be best to remove the WIndows Dual Boot and use the BIOS to boot. We'll need to see a screenshot with both HD's plugged in to advise the steps to do this.

To grab a good screen from the Disk Management tool use the snipping tool found in the Start>Accessories while having most of the DM displayed on your desktop. Sometimes the information about a drive at the top as well as the main area below can be useful.

You have to disable the automatic restart on system crash option as well in order to hold a blue screen on long enough. That will be found in the Control Panel>System>Advanced Settings>Startup & Recovery section. Once disabled the blue screen will simply hang until you hit the ctrl-alt-del key combo to force a restart. But that will give you the time to jot down what each screen reveals.

Will try putting 7 on a different HD and see what that gets. If that doesn't work, was intending to buy 4 more gigs of ram anyways so will try that too. If none of that gets anywhere will list the logs/screenshot. Will take a few days to do, but will get back either way with what happens.

(basically do not want to replace a pretty expensive MB if I don't have to... last resort considering it works with XP.. I'll ditch the windows 7 before i'm ditching the MB at this time)

Have you tried running a disk check?

Diskcheck and even the diagnostics tool from the drive manufacturer itself would one step for confirming or ruling the drive out.

One question here would be which drive is 7 on and the make and model? The 500gb is how old? since you pointed to that one. Drive wear over time if that was moved into a new build from another would tend to see that.

The drive mfr's utility is a good thought...Seagate's utility will work on most drives, and seems competent:

That would be the SeaTools for Windows. | Seagate

For WD drives that would be the LifeGuard utilities seen at their support site. WD Support > Downloads > SATA & SAS > WD RE2

For Maxtor and other brands you can easily look those up at their sites.
