amd fx-4100 cpu
8 gb ddr3
amd radeon hd 770 series graphics card
960gm-gs3 fx p1.3 motherboard
600 watt atx powersuply
2tb segate beracuda
corsair force gt 128gb
2 usb 2.0 front ports
2 fans
cd drive
cooler master case
So I installed an ssd to boot from as a second option to my hdd after some trouble I needed to wipe my ssd and reinstalled windows which I did succesfully and work fine I could access my hdd at this point as well.After that I restarted my pc, went into my bios to boot from hdd then it failed, then I change to boot from ssd and saved some files from hdd. To fix my hdd to boot I disconnected the ssd connected my cd drive tried to repair my hdd using my windows cd but was said to be invalid.Then I loaded up the bios defaults and succesfully booted from my hdd. After that I disconnect my sata cable from my cd drive to my ssd ,  my computer crashed 2 times before I was able to boot from my ssd. I notice that there were a bunch of administrative tools when I login, as well as said its was fixing my hdd.Now im just scared to turn off my pc and perhaps futher damage my storage units.
Access to any files in my ssd require permision, why is that and what do i do?As well as having trouble having 2 storage units to boot from.

I'd suggest posting over in the hardware forums for some more expert advice:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/7/internal-hardware/

What I suspect is a problem with making the 2 drives work together, but the details are a bit beyond my experience

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Let's go back to the beginning.


You are trying to boot from a newly-installed SSD...and use your original hard drive strictly as storage?  Or are you trying to dual-boot two Windows hard drives?


Although I moved this to the Win 7 forum...what O/S is installed on each hard drive?
