    So while waiting for a B3 replacement for a P8H67-M PRO, I upgraded its P67 counterpart. I put everything back together again, and tried to boot the computer with the 64gb C300 SSD with windows 7 on it from the original system.

    After booting up there was a "No hard drive detected" message on startup.

    This is followed by a screen, similar to if you turn't off the computer without shutting it down.

    I have tried switching from a SATA 6gbps to SATA 3gbps and switching to a Samsumg F3 that was running the system in my sig with windows 7, but I had no success.

    After choosing the Repair option it gives a diagnostic that it may be caused by a "change in configuration".

    I pressed finish there is a list of options;
    System repair
    System restore
    System image recovery
    Windows memory diagnostics tool
    Command Prompt

    I tried the Windows memory diagnostics tool, and after the progress bar completed it blue-screened and restarted itself.

    I started up the PC with one stick of RAM and then the other to no avail.

    I went through repair again and chose System repair which said it could not automatically fix the problem.

    I chose System restore and restored to the first option. This didn't help and I haven't got and System image recovery will not work without an image. >.<

    So I'm all out of options!

    Anyone know whats wrong? I am open to suggestions!

    Well the "no hard drive connected" is related to the Marvell controller & simply means you've not got anything connected to that - not that you've not got any drives connected to the intel one.

    As to why Windows itself is blue screening, there's far too many reasons... Could be data corruption or a h/w fault or dodgy bios settings or...

    ...though the message is about a hdd error - check for viruses/run a chkdsk/check connections/etc.
