Agree with Ryu Connor, but can you install from your external back-up vs. the original drive?
I do have an external Back-up drive. Let me check that out!

Th4e hard hard drive is in the PC but not powered up or connected. Any suggestions on the best way to migrate programs, files, photos, videos, etc. from the ...

Re: New MB results in BSOD during Windows 7 X 64 Startup

Hi All,

Thanks for the input. I am trying the fresh install as suggested since every other effort has resulted in the same BSOD requesting I run CHKDSK.

You were right it is an ASUS MB.

New MB results in BSOD during Windows 7 X 64 Startup

Hi All, I installed a new ASUS P5N-T MB and get a BSOD during Windows Startup right after the four colored squares swirl around and get fuzzy. I have tried starting in Safe Mode and I get the same result. Any suggestions? I have Windows 7 X64. My old MB was a Gigabyte. I have a Q6600, 4GB or Ram, on...

Re: UnitedGerbilNation's drive to the Top

While I'm not particularly interested in helping UGN, if you have a C2D-compatible motherboard, I might be interested in buying it. Depending on what it can do, I'll use it for my C2D 6400 or C2Q 8400 processor (which is already running on a Gigabyte P965 board), and take my pokey dual core Athlon ...

Re: New Notfred diskless version out

Hi NotFred, Will your folding disk allow 4 instances of GPU folding? How much RAM would be required? I am shipping a folding node to Emcubed that will have two 9800GX2s and he wants to use your folding disk.

Thank you for your support. :wink:

Try another SATA cable. Might also be just a bad drive. Do you have a SATA to USB converter to test it with? If not, can you try hooking it up to another system?


The drive shows up in my MB BIOS so I do not think it is a cable problem. But I will try swapping the cable just to be sure.

Re: Help with HDD recognition in Win 7 X64

How many other HDD do you have attached to your main system? If there are other drives, then how much is their aggregated capacity? Because, I suspect there might be an issue with your controller. Because, most eariler SATA controllers have issues when they attempt to handle more than 3-4TiB of tot...
