I had a 630i and I used the HDD in my new PC setup. I wiped vista off it and installed windows 7. I then tried to put my HDD back in the 630i and it shows a BSOD after the windows logo (0x0000007b).

There is no "configuration" tab in the BIOS (v1.0.12) so I can't change to IDE or ACHI mode as there is no option.

I have tried a system restore and it doesn't help. Only the latest one works, older ones give an "unspecified error". Startup repair doesnt do anything. It crashes before chkdsk can run, memory diagnostics don't show any errors.

WHAT IS WRONG?!?!?!

(Also I tried this with someone elses HDD in the 630i and it gave the same BSOD however I fixed that with a system restore; which isn't working this time...)

i had the same idea you had, but was told it wouldn't work. the drive has to be "clean" before you install it. then formatted then os installed. at least that's what i was told. hopefully someone else may have a better answer for you. (i'm still learning myself.) i hope i'm understanding your situation right.

When you install Windows on a PC, it is installing files and setting up configurations specific to the hardware on that machine--transferring it to another PC causes problems simply because the software doesn't match the hardware. That's the reason for a clean install of Windows.

Also, get version 1.0.13 of the bios and install it. Don't think it will help, but at least it's the latest.
