    Hmmm... Could it be that your HW is failing?

    I had that theory, but all my hardware, apart from a secondary Hard drive & the GFX is less than 5 months old. I'll disconnect the drive and card and run from on board storage, see what I get. Will update in one moment

    After multiple tests, it's still doing the exact same thing. I'll unplug the os and leave the other 2 plugged in, and try to boot the boot disk

    Well this is never good news.... boot disk ran absolutely fine.... maybe my hard drive is on its way out...

    Guess I'm going to need a new hard drive huh?

    I would like to ask though, should I not have heard some form of clicking noise? The previous 2 hard drives that died on me, both clicked long before they died.

    That was my suspicion Not necessarily. Could you burn this onto a disc and boot up from it to test your HDD (This is not a definitive test)

    Whilst I'm out I'll buy some discs and a new hard drive. Seems like it's handy to have spare discs

    I think I may need to find my win7 OEM and setup dual boot. Would be much easier if there is a next time

    Don't buy a new HDD yet! Buy some discs, not just one.

    I'm currently installing Windows 8 on a 750gb partition on the 2tb. I'm basically doing a refresh, as (hopefully) I can recover all my important files from the previous harddrive. I don't mind re installing programs as they're easily redownloadable. It shouldn't be hard to switch activation over to the new OS, will it? It was a full install disc, not an upgrade or OEM.
