At first I was getting blue screen errors I disabled SATA on mb and disabled L1 cache and L2 cache. formatted in NTFS and now it is taking forever to load windows it is only at 38% and it has been an hour any suggestions? Help please...

    Disabling caches was a bad idea. Turn them back on. You should run a memory test and check the HD just in case too.
