I posted an issue in the networking section thinking my pci adapter may have caused my system not to boot but after attempting to boot with my backup hard drive and not having any success, I'm starting to think it may be related to something else.
Long story short, i had some network issues with my new tplink 300Mpci adapter, I removed it and put the old linksys 54g one in but after that my win7 fresh install on a 10 day old HDD would either get stuck on the win7 loading page or go into startup repair which after an hour or two would state it could not repair the problem remotely. It also freezes up so I have no option but to power down.
I tried a backup drive which I use for this sort of situation but now the backup drive running win7 with only the basic drivers and programs won't load up either. I get the same options, either startup repair that doesn't repair or being stuck in the win7 loading screen.
I'm running an old dell e521, I recently replaced my 7+ year old main hdd with a new wd 1tb drive and installed win 7 on it around 10 days ago. I have also been using a new 300M pci card for about 2 weeks. Problems with the wifi network started two days ago when I tried to connect a line directly to the pc which solved itself after a restart. They started again after attempting to access an old hdd which required multiple restarts. Now the pc won't start up at all with two separate drives.
