ringfinger Posted October 23, 2007 Share Posted October 23, 2007 I went to install a new 500GB Seagate 7200.10 hard drive into my system today and now I cannot boot into Windows normally. I powered everything off added the drive to the existing ones (76gb Raptor, 320gb Seagate 7200.10) booted up, it went to the XP loading screen, finished and right as it was about to goto the desktop it BSOD'd. It automatically rebooted, I let it go.. did the same thing. I went into the BIOS, it's detected and all settings look right. Now here's the jacked up part...I pulled the drive and now I get the same result minus the blue screen. I boot (With the raptor and the 320 seagate) it shows the xp load screen, as soon as the desktop should appear it just reboots. It then prompts me to go into safe mode... SAFE MODE WORKS. SO... I know its a driver issue but what driver is jacked? I resintalled the driver for the mass storagte controller... I've swapped SATA cables and positions and power. I've unplugged video, dvd and RAM reset BIOS to default, tried last known good config. I've done everything I can think of and need someone to point me in the right direction!?!? I know its got to be a driver issue because it loads up in safe mode.
