    you should start another tread it's confusing to work on 2 problems on the same tread

    Jazz sorry I miss read your first post , the EVGA 680i motherboard , I read it as a GTX 680 , lol , but still always install windows with only 1 disk

    from your log :

    "BootSectorRestoreCheckpoint: no MBR sector ne"

    i can't read the rest but it's seems I was right with the disks,

    and also you log mention a windows on a x:\ drive


    is this a upgrade or fresh install you try to do ?, from your log it create a old windows directory

    This is an upgrade I am attempting to do, just re-installed Windows 7 a little while ago and just being lazy as I can't be bothered to re-install everything!

    I think I might have figured my issue out, for some reason the Bootmgr wasn't stored on my main SSD but on my storage hard drive. So when I disconnected them all of them out except the SSD Windows wouldn't start. So what I've done is restarted with the drive in, gone into Computer management and made my main Windows drive active, then gone into an elevated Command Prompt and made the other drive inactive. Then restarted comp with the other drive out, put my windows 7 DVD in my drive and then repaired my start up. That seems to allow me now to boot into windows with all my drives out. In Disk Manager it was showing the Storage drive as Healthy (System, Active), whereas my SSD had Healthy(Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition). Now the SSD has all the above but also System and active!

    I hope this will now work so I will keep you updated! I'll probably do this tomorrow now as I got to get up early tomorrow and I'll stay up all night trying to fix it if I encounter another issue!!

    Always made my own computers but lesson learned from area 66 about only installing Windows with your main drive in! Thanks for the advice mate.
