Have you tried reformatting your hard disk? this happened to me when i tried to us PartionMagic tool. my hard disk stopped working tho' it's still showing up when i plug it in another PC. this is how i get it working again: i plugged my hard drive to another PC and i used DiskPart to clean it and i formatted it in Windows Disk Management.
it worked for me and i doubt, there was an error partitioning my hard disk so i needed to make it fresh again.
If I understand you correctly you had a previous operating system installed on one hard drive and you just now installed Windows 7 but on a separate drive? When you boot the machine if gives you two boot options, the old OS and the NEW OS?
What your going to have to do is format the drive(erase) that contains the old operating system. Format as NTFS.
Try unplugging the old drive, making sure the new drive is set to master and not slave. Boot up the computer. When you boot up your computer you should immediately get options. One of these options should say "press delete for bios" or press "f6 for settings" You need to go into the bios and make sure the drive with Windows 7 is set to your primary drive in the boot order(hard drive should be first in boot list). We want the computer to boot to the new drive first.
Once you get into Windows you can use a program like partition magic to format the old drive to use as just storage space. You can even use "diskpart' which is an old windows command line utility.
If you reinsert the Windows Disk when you are booting up you will get some recovery options, and if I recall correctly one of these should let you format hard drive space. So, you may be able to do it from there.
Where exactly does the error come up in the boot process? Are you able to boot into safe mode? It may be easier for you to just reinstall Windows 7. If you boot the computer with the disk in the drive, and the BIOS set to boot first to the disk, then during the installation configuration you should be able to have Windows just format the old drive to use as space and install the MBR on the new drive.
When this happens it is always the hard drive going.gone faulty. I recommend you replace the hard drive. But first, try a full format, from a Boot CD/DVD, that can be used to format, like Partition Magic, or get UBCD, this too has formatting tools, try that one last thing before giving up and getting a new drive.
Try borrowing a compatible HDD instead of buying a third one for testing and check if the same error exists. Try also using an external DVD drive to see if your internal CD-ROM is defective. Try also using another Windows XP CD installer. You can also use other OS installation CD to check it. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your lappy's motherboard due to tear and wear, heat, vibration, misuse and shock.
ok..you may want to do a chkdsk..open my computer..then highlight the main drive..right click go to properties. then you will see some options..tools is what you want..click on that tab, and them there will be an error checking option..follow that through, and it will run on restart..
