How old is the board? Most likely it can, but you can look at your owner's manual usually on the software install disk in PDF format.
Or MFG website. Do you have a licensed copy? If not, you will need to buy one with a COA. Did it work before you tried to install
Win7? Do you have the bios setup to recognize the hard drive you want to install win7 on? Do you have friends or family that can help you? Do you have a CD-ROM DvD drive that works? Perhaps it is not being recognized by the board's Bios, or you need to set it up as a drive so the bios will recognize the Dvd.
Windows not work with you new hardware. 1.Start windows in safe mode (press F8 before windows start).Maybe now windows recognize your new hard. if reboot continues... 2.Insert Windows disc and start with disc.In the menu select repair start.
Can you temporarily attach the "new" disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some other computer?
Then, write some files onto the disk-drive, restart the computer, and see if the files are corrupted.
If they are, then the disk-drive is defective, and can easily be replaced, under warranty,
either from where you bought it, or directly from the manufacturer.
If the files are OK, then it's your motherboard that is the problem.
PUT YOUR OLD COMP BACK THE WAY IT WAS .IF IT BOOTS AS ALWAYS,GO TO CONTROL PANEL.SELECT "SYSTEM",SELECT DEVICE MGR,SELECT DISK DRIVES.RIGHT CLICK ON YOUR SLAVE,SELECT UNINSTALL,FOLLOW INSTRUCTS.TURN OFF COMP AND REMOVE YOUR SLAVE.REBOOT.HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!
You need to sliptream SATA drivers into your setup disk.
Download from here
driverpacks mass storage
copy windows CD to hard drive then use "Nlite" to insert them into the drivers section
then burn to a new CD.
and reboot from it should have no problem then
Have you accessed the BIOS each time you swapped drives?
I don't know your board but you may have to let the BIOS examine your hardware and choose 'safe defaults' for you.
Also, flaky memory will cause all kinds of hangups-
I had this trouble had to reset BIOS to default then it worked but would either recognize IDE drive and not SATA remove IDE SATA was recognized Its something in the BIOS setup As I do not know your BIOS you will have to check it out with *********** board manual how to do it to setup both drives
