Windows 7: Windows 7 failing to boot after restoring peripherals

13 Sep 2011   #11

Windows Home Premium 64- bit(6.1,Build 7600) SP1

I haven't run any dsk chks on the hds in the pc now. That's a boot up check right?

You can do a file scan:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I personally would not mix PATA & SATA Hd Drive on the same PC.

You're probably right. I put them in from my old pc. I should copy the data and get rid of them.

I've kind of tracked this down to having 5 usb devices plugged into a usb hub. If I limit the hub to 4 usb devices, I don't get the boot problem.

The hub is self powered, so it doesn't depend on the pc usb port for power. I guess the pc usb port for the hub just doesn't like 5 devices being attached to it.
