    Did you run the upgrade assistant on the machine you are upgrading?

    Is NX switched on in your motherboard bios?

    SOLVED!!!!

    I opened up my machine an it turns out my hard drive was plugged in to SATA 2, with my second in SATA 3 and my DVD drive in SATA 4, ports one and two are in a different place on the M/B. odd that its never cased an issue in the past but once i put my drives in 1 and 2 it worked fine

    Thanks for all the help guys.

    also: i took out the extra drive cage in my PC while it was open and that left more space and better air flow so it was all worth it in the end.
