intentionally or accidentally change SATA settings from IDE to AHCI or vice versa after the install?
Client of mine has bought his notebook ASUS U31S with external DVD
drive yesterday and he asked me to install windows 7 ultimate (origin
was windows 7 home edition) beside other operating system Linux and
I divided the 500 GB hard disk but didn't touch the hidden partition that has recovery.
I formatted the C partition that had windows 7 home edition and install a
fresh copy of windows 7 ultimate,,,,,the process was smooth , first
restart asking about username and computer name , password,,,etc ,,,,but
with the second restart, PC kept rebooting without completing the
Although I have used the same widnows 7 CD for his other new laptop and the installation went smooth without any problem.
I tried different media same problem.
This laptop does have an external DVD driv, of course it is an LG and brand new
What could be the cause of this issue ?
