OS not on SSD anymore
Posted 16 May 2013 - 08:01 PM
I have a Crucial 64gb SSD that was my main drive with Windows 7 on it. I was tired of it always being full so I purchased a 128gb Crucial SSD and have clean installed Windows 7 on it. I want to us the 64gb SSD as a games drive but even after I have formatted it, when I install it and boot my pc I get an error saying the path to Windows is not found...I can hit enter or esc and either option closes the screen and Windows loads up just fine. Are there remnants of the old Windows 7 on the old drive confusing the boot sequence? Any ideas will help guys, thanks!

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change my be the problem
The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

If you had the second drive plugged in while installing Windows 7, the system partiton(100mb partition that contains boot stuff) may have been put on the second drive. You can verify through disk management and looking for a 100mb partition or a partition that says boot in parenthesis.
