I recently upgraded my computer with:
Intel core i5 2500K
2x 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 RAM
MSI Radeon HD6950 2GB
Seagate 1TB internal hard disk.
The issue i'm having is with my old Internal (A Samsung 1TB.)
On my old hard disk I had it split into a 700GB partition (Windows 7) and the rest had Ubuntu on it. After I upgraded, I reinstalled Windows 7 onto my new disk (had my old unplugged during the process.) After it was installed, and I plugged in my old disk and booted windows up - deleted the partitions on the old disk, and created a new 500GB one, leaving the rest unallocated. This worked fine all night and such - through multiple restarts.
Today I decided to have a little look at overclocking the 2500K, and after fiddling with the BIOS settings I saved and restarted. Usually what will happen is after the POST screen, it will say "Loading Operating System..." or something for a few seconds, then Windows will start loading. What happened though was that it went:
"Loading Operating System...
ERROR: Parition doesn't exist
Or something like that. Considering GRUB was the boot loader that went on with Ubuntu, I figured it had to be something to do with the old hard disk. I'm very unfamiliar with the whole boot sequence, and boot loaders and such, so I don't know how to fix it. Currently i've just unplugged the old hard disk so I could boot up.
Would anyone have an explanation and/or solution to this problem? As far as i'm aware the old disk has about a 500GB partition with nothing on it, and 500GB of unallocated space.
