How come I get errors on boot after upgrading to Windows 7 from Windows Vista?

by on July 26, 2011

Q: I have an Acer Aspire Desktop, I recently upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7, now my computer gives me an error on startup that reads
Port 01: (error about not finding anything)
Port 02: (same)
then it states system disk error.
CMOS cannot locate the Hard Drive or the DVD Player, and when I unplug one or the other from the mother board it will locate the drive then the drive disappears again…I am at a loss as to what to do, I have replaced the CMOS battery and looked on the optical drive and the hard trive to see how the jumpers are set, and there are no jumpers or instructions on how to set one to slave or the other to master.

    What is the exact model number of your Acer Aspire Desktop?

    Also, how are your drives hooked up, ATA, or SATA, See this photo: http://i.imgur.com/xYCXH.gif
