    OK, had Win7 running fine with a 40gb WD HD. Win XP (sp3) runs fine on the 80 Gb HD. Decided to

    get a few bigger hd's and reinstall win 7 for the heck of it.
    My win XP SP3 works fine when booted up into it.

    My bios somehow got changed and this is what I came up with to get the thing to run!! I'm sure

    it must not be right but at least I can get to my XP hard drive!! I can boot to Win7 but

    everything just hangs. I've tried the 500gb drive with the jumper and without, and it

    doesn't seem to make a difference.

    Standard CMOS:
    Pri IDE Master 80gb Western Ditigal
    Pri IDE Slave Not Installed
    Sec IDE Master ATPI DVD/CD player
    Sec IDE Slave Not installed
    ThirD IDE Master WD 500 SATA II HD With Jumper in/out
    Third IDE Slave Not Installed
    the rest not installed

    Advanced Bios:
    Quick Boot
    Boot Device Select: DVD, 80gb, 500gb
    Fulle Sgreen logo disabled

    ATA Config: PATA Only
    Sata Keep Enabled: Yes
    Data Channel Selet: Both
    Sata posts defination: Po-3rd./p1-4th

    My performance mode is set to normal
    My boot menue looks like this when I boot up:

    Older window System
    Windows 7
    Windows 7

    The bottom Windows 7 seems to be from an earlier install.

    Befor I installed win7 on the had I totally formated the drive and got a clean install,

    except it hung on the video driver. I safe booted and it loaded AGP440.sys anda loaded

    the rest of win7

    I don't plan on messing with my xp drive (C) since it works fine and I don't want to screw that up.

    I feel maybe I have some issues with the drives and the master slave settings.....

    western digital drives are kind of funny at times.

    A lot of times I have had to set the master western digital drives jumper settings to slave to be able to use them with other (maxtor, seagate, etc) drives in the same system.

    Not so much now with all SATA II drives, but with an IDE in there, it happens about 80% of the time.
