  1. I have a custom built computer, with an ECS GF8200A motherboard, and well the hard drive on it was just too small, it was an older IDE, and after trying to add my new sata hard drive windows will start to boot then it will restart randomly and say use recovery or start windows normally, everytime i try the recovery i get the blue screen (0x0000000019 or something like that) I tried removing my hard drive and same thing happens. I then tried removing the IDE and putting a fresh install of windows on my sata, but that didnt work... Help?
