I have about had it. I am an IT guy and I cannot figure out what the deal is with this. I have done a TON of reading and nothing has helped. Here is my issue...
I have two drives
250GB SSD (C:)
2TB HDD (D:)
For some reason, I don't know why, I shut down my computer one night and when I booted it up the next day I see everything start loading and then it stops at CLASSPNP.SYS. i did some research on this to have some idea of what was going on and how to possibly fix it. Here is something I discovered that just seems odd to me. If I have ONLY the C: drive plugged in, I cant boot up just fine. If I plug the D: drive in also, it gets to the Windows 7 boot screen and sits there FOREVER before it actually boots its way to the desktop. the downside with this is that I have some very large and much needed software that I installed onto the D: drive and now cannot use until this is fixed.
What I have tried:
Overwriting file with one off the Windows CD - I wanted to try anyway
Running the "repair" too from the Windows CD - wouldn't you know it, it didn't even detect that there is an issue.
Ran the Windows CD and did the "upgrade" option - even though it's not an actual upgrade
Boot to command line and run various commands - I don't recall which ones but there aren't to many to try in this situation to fix the issue.
I tried plugging in the D: drive at various stages of booting up the system
I changed some of the BIOS options based on setting I had found that worked for others - Not all setting I found were applicable though
I think that's everything. Now to ask the million dollar question that has been haunting me in my dreams...HOW DO I FIX THIS?
This isn't just a "I want this fixed since it's broken" type issue. This is a "I need this fixed" type issue. Not to mention I am at my wits end trying to figure this out since nothing is working.
Thank you in advance for any help you may offer.
