    Windows Wont Start
    « on: May 01, 2017, 04:24:56 AM »
    I recently,  moved a build out of an old Case an into a new one an had no issues with wiring it up with no real hassle.  When I go to turn it on, starts up an gets stuck at the Windows Boot Loader Screen an just stays there.  I attempted to do a repair but, it's not able to an says that the drive is locked an needs to be unlocked.  I used Hiens an marked it as a Active Partition but, still get that error message.  I can't get into Safe Mode using F8 an seems like you have to use differnt keys now.  It's running a scan an repair from the Windows 8 Disc but, it don't seem to go beyond that an says 100% complete

    not sure how much being about a 2 TB drive is effecting it though.  I did remove the additional, pci usb card to but, kind of doubt that's causing, the issue

      So I take it that they have to be connected the same way like the order the other case was in

      You cannot simply move a Windows HDD from 1 install to another...

        I don't see why, you can't since there isn't any major hardware changes.  Since, I can't get really any answers getting the data off an doing a reinstall of everything,  :-\  I have a feeling that this will pointlessly get locked then
