    I’ve been trying to install my new Sata 750GB Seagate hard drive but
    I’ve been running into some issues. I started to installing Vista
    Ultimate on it. Once it started to boot from the cd an error blue
    screen came up saying check the new hard ware installed. I kept on
    getting that message. I popped the other hard drive back in to see if
    the drive was bad and got the same message. Then I put the new one
    back in and decided to try my other Vista cd and this one installed. I
    have 2 hard drives installed and both are partitioned. I installed
    Vista on the C drive and grabbed all the Vista updates. But after
    grabbing all the updates I noticed that some “page files” had been
    installed on the D drive and I could no longer format the drive thru
    Vista or change the drive letter. These page files were not there
    after a clean install of Vista. Only after getting the updates.How and
    why does this happen when I’m installing everything to the C drive. Is
    this normal? Lastly, I shut down my computer the last 2 nites and when
    I started it the next day I got a screen saying Windows could not be
    started. I pressed enter and came to another black screen showing the
    name of the operating system so I hit enter and everything started up
    normally. I’ve gotten this start error twice after the pc was shut
    down overnite. But when I do a restart of shutdown and restart it
    starts up fine. When it’s off a few hours I seem to get that message.
