Default Re: MSI GT60 one403us hard drive upgrade

I recently put a SSD in my desktop and had a similar issue, Not all the time but most of the time, I had a seagate 1 terabyte (old drive) and the ssd for windows and it seemed to randomly pick which drive it would boot from, I went into the bios and it only listed the seagate in the boot order section, so I had only my SSD (OCZ Vertex 4) plugged in and then in bios put it as first boot device and after a good boot shut down and reconnected the seagate and it's been booting fine ever since. No idea why it was doing it or why it some times booted from the SSD and other times tried booting from the seagate but it all works now, Mine just came up the the loading screen and told me a windows file was missing or some thing like that.


New system
NZXT Tempest 410 - I5-4670K - Asus Z87-Plus - SeaSonic SS-750KM3 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular PS
GPU MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G - CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB 1600 (2x8gig) - SAMSUNG 840 EVO 250 -Seagate Barracuda 3-TB

Antec 200 - I7-920 - ASUS P6T - Corsair TX650 it's old but still kicking like a mule
2-EVGA GTX 470 in SLI- ocz vertex 3 SSD 128 gig
Seagate Barracuda 1-TB - OCZ DDR3-1600 12 gigs 3x2
Keeps Me Happy :lol:

Yeah I thought the boot order of the HDD and the SDD might have been the problem at first but when I checked the Seagate was the first one (OS installed) and my samsung 840 was the second in the hard drive boot order, even updated the bios and still had no result, I finally just reinstalled the original hard drive and it works perfectly with the SSD installed, so im guessing it might have had something to do with hard drive its self or maybe even the Restore DVD's, the restore dvd's did work perfectly on the original HDD becuz I ran them (DVD's) on it last night and it boots up fine so i dunno what to think anymore

What OS came shipped with your laptop?
