Windows 7 RC causing hardware failure?
Since my Windows 7 Beta was running short of time, I decided to install Windows 7 RC. However, this caused my motherboard to not detect my hard drives anymore.
1. Burned Windows 7 RC to DVD-R
2. Restarted Computer to start installation.
3. 1st Restart, Computer is stuck at POST. Hangs after Detecting SATA hard drive.
4. Tried with a IDE hard drive, but no luck. Encounters error at Starting System services.
a. Restart to try again.
b. Failure to detect IDE drive now.
I was able to install Windows 7 RC with the disk on Virtual PC, if that helps.
Any help will be appreciated.
UPDATE: Updated Bios, disabled Serial and Parallel Port which then fixed IDE, no hope on SATA
