Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit

OK, but there's nothing to fix - you just can't boot a Windows drive from another computer and expect it to work (although sometimes it does). Windows needs to be installed fresh on THIS computer.

Ok mate just that it does boot then goes as I have explained but no further then those five options and to create a repair disk - which it will not do because of that error. Have tried the sytem image function but come up with that error when I get to create a repair disk - parameters are wrong -(0x80070057)

I have tried booting with an older rescue disk and the older OEM on even an empty (but initialised) drive but nothing happens.

Now I have like I said a spare OEM here if I put that on this computer I suppose the same will happen if I try and put that drive into my build when I do it?

Just out of curiosity this machine is a 2005 build and tells me it is running 64bit and the clone and the spare OEM are 64bit. Now I am no expert as you will have gathered by now but even to me I ma wondering would a 64bit system been around in those days plus if I am right would not the SATA be a 1.5Gbs and not be able to use the 3Gbs drive I have in it. I ask because I saw on Scott Muellers video that sometimes one has to "jumper" the drive to be able to utilise a 3Gbs drive on a 1.5Gbs supported board.

Maybe I should drag out the manual again and find out what the support is for drives?

Ah well I think the mobo or something has had it I am going to try once more after removing the battery to reset the BIOS. Even with empty drive I couldn't get the OEM to start up and have tried yet a fresh clone too but no good. Pity cos it has SATA instead of those awful IDE cables.

Shame also because I stuck an old HP drive into an old Optiplex and it worked perfectly and gave the owner some more speed as the old CPU was a 1.1Ghz and the new 1.7Ghz. Still you win some you lose some

Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit

Pity, but hey, you tried! Your suspicions about the SATA interface speed and the 64-bit question were pretty good ones. It's possible that while the CPU is 64-bit capable, the motherboard isn't entirely up to it. But 64-bit capability in general has been around since about 2004 from what I've heard.

I assume the mobo still has an IDE interface you can use instead of SATA? Might not be such a bad option after all.

Hum Corazon now you have got me thinking I reckon you may be right re the board not up to 64bit although the post / BIOS starts up saying it's a 64bit system. Now I think this machine must have been running 64bit as it did have a gaming type setup with a DVI GPU nd te like. Plus i the BIOS it does give one the OC options.

The SATA question was due to me watching Scott Mueller's build video as he described and showed how a 3Gbs had to be jumpered to 1.5Gbs on some systems before they are recognised. However that doesn't explain why the things boots to Windows has me enter my pw then goes to all that option stuff.
