    I thought you had an AHCI choice, which means there should also be an IDE one somewhere. Is this elsewhere in BIOS?

    well the compatibility mode sets it to IDE. Standard mode sets it to AHCI

    When you find it, go to their website and download their hard drive tool software. Use it to scan and format the drive. I'm nearly 100% certain this issue was caused by you using diskpart, and using their software should fix whatever is awry. I'm also pretty sure that if you picked the advanced drive option during the Windows 7 install, and destroyed all the existing partitions and then let Windows 7 create what it needs, that things would be fixed.

    Download WD DataLifeguard HD Diagnostic burn to CD using an Image Burner like Windows Image Burner or ImgBurn, boot and run full scan.

    Diskpart Clean command wipes the HD boot sector of possibly conflicting or corrupt code. It is one of the most reliable troubleshooting steps for failed installs and of course also removes the partitions and clears the partition table. There is no harm that can come of it. Disk wear is only really exacerbated by using the unneeded Clean All command to write zeros and is used to make data irretrievable by most methods.

    Kinda Fixed.. I Guess.. I can get to my desktop every time.. but if i make a change that requires rebooting, or if i reboot for ANY reason, i get that boot\bcd error.. UNLESS after comp shuts down, i unplug the plug and hold power button for like 10 seconds. then when i turn comp on it boots straight to desktop no problem.. hmmm
