    I had a fresh install of 7 and everything was working fine.
    All of a sudden it starts randomly freezing and programs start responding.
    I got KERNAL_PAGING_ERROR BSODs etc. and got a new disk, thinking it was that.
    After cloning the new disk which didn't work, and produced loads of errors on chkdsk, I decided to do a clean install of 7.

    I still keep getting "Disk boot error, insert system disk and press enter", and when it does boot, it freezes all the time and every time I click the start button, it basically crashed and is messed up.

    Tried new SATA cable and ports. Any ideas?

    BIOS settings or Motherboard issues?

    Have you checked with the manufacturer website for the Motherboard that you have the Windows 7 drivers?

    Is your Windows 7 DVD a retail copy...or the pre release BETA....or dodgy(in which case problems might lie there)
