Re: Strange Vista Bug Continues...
Forgot the extra info-

Ive had a strange problem happen twice now. Ive installed Vista on many
PC's, but the last two i have done have caused problems. They are new
builds with fresh harddrives (SATA). Everything is going fine and Vista
installs without problems. When i deliver the pc's to my clients i pop
their old HDD and put it either in an external HDD caddy or on an IDE cable.
I try and copy some files across (documents / photos) from then on i have
problems. The PC's lock up when trying to access programs etc. Vista takes
ages too boot up etc.

This also moves onto unable to update windows, copy files off the computer
as almost any prolonged harddrive acces causes the pc to enter a state where
the mouse moves but the ystsem is basically unresponsive

Have you set the secondary HDs to be slave drives?

Yes, There is a possiblity it was due to the harddrives being in SATA 1
mode on a SATA 2 board, this shouldnt have caused a problem , but i couldnt
test it fully, in the end i replaced the drives.
