Windows 7 rebooting after about 50 minutes

I have installed multi-license Windows 7 onto three different hard drives and it reboots on just one of them after 50 minutes or so.

I swap the drives around and it follows that drive. Doesn't matter whether I use BIOS in 'failsafe' mode or not.

I would be very grateful for clues as to what to do.

I would download and run the diagnostics software from your hard drive manufacturer. It sounds as if that one drive may be failing after it heats up.
