I am getting NTLDR error at boot frequently!

Recommended Posts

I suggest purchasing some SATA 3.0gb cables.

Can be had without spending a lot of $$.

They do make a difference.

What will these cables do?

If the cables work when you swap them back and forth you can just about eliminate the cables as a problem.

 

Once you've qualified your RAM with memtest for 8 hours, you can move to checking the OS with prime95 for 24 hours for stability.

 

The drives could have bad spots. Try reformatting them using a full format.

 

Reinstall the OS and test for OS stability again.

 

Buy Spinrite 6.0 and use it regularly.

What will these cables do?

 

If you are looking for a legimate 3.0gb transfer via SATA 2.

You must use the cables that are capable of 3gb transfer.

I read an article on this several weeks ago, the author stated and proved that if you have a 3gb chipset and hard drive, and use the std 1.5gb cables. Your transfer will be quite a bit less than 3gb.

More like 1.8gb transfer.

If you have a chipset that supports 3gb and a hard drive that is 3gb.

It is simple to see you must have a framework that supports 3gb or it ain't gonna work.

 

I googled 3gb SATA cables and got several hits. Some venders state that thier 1.5's are 3 rating. This vender sells the ds1.5's for $27.50 for a pair.

I found a couple of venders that show that thier cables are 3 design.

The price of the legimate 3gb cables are more in the $4.00 range.

This vender was the one I purchased a pair of cables fromd.

These cables have clips that hold the cable to the chipset and drive.

I agree with this statement.

If you transfer the cables from one socket to another and that works.

The cables are not the problem.

The statement I made was just to help you get somewhere near 3gb transfer from your SATA drives.
