    Ok guys so last night I went legit on Windows 7 and everything went good. During the install though i saw some system reserved partition on my non boot drive so i thought wtf i'll delete it. Well, once i did that things went south quickly. Basically if my WD VR 300 is plugged in during boot the pc gets to a screen which says basically detecting drives and sits there. If i unplug it and boot into win 7, it's fine. I then can plug it in while pc is booted and it comes instantly. I'm trying a few things now but does anyone have any ideas? i've switched ports and stuff but tbh i have no idea if it matters where stuffs plugged in on my motherboard. it's an x58a and i'm using the intel controller for all my stuffs. TIA! :cry:

    Your bios is booting form the wrong drive. Attach all drives, boot into bios, and set the win7 as first boot drive.

    The system partition generated automatically by a Windows 7 installation contains the boot record for the Windows 7 environment. See this article for details regarding the system partition.
