Hybrid drive denies dual-boot windows 7

Till date I always had Win 7 in 32 & 64 bit flavors and occasionally also xp.

Recently I got a 1 tb seagate firecuda and installed win 7 64 bit. However, the 2nd install of the same flavor was awkward (in the first install, after expanding files windows rebooted) because it completed all tasks before rebooting.

However, when I tried booting from the newer install, I saw the dreaded message "cannot load winload.exe"

I deleted that install and tried with 32 bit, same result.

Tried Xp too, same result.

I even deleted all installs and had 32 bit first, then 64 bit, same result.

Currently I am using the 32 bit and typing from there.

Is this how SSHD supposed to behave? I thought the 7gb cache would speed up things, but never expected this.

What may be wrong, any idea? Thanks in advance for any inputs

SSHD's do have there limits and I fear you found one ;-{

Basically, when you have multiple partitions with different versions of OS you can encounter loading issues of the OS as the files are the same name so the drive doesn't know you booted up with a different version as it still has in the SSD cache what it was load last not the new one in the other partition.

If you booted up from different drives this wouldn't be an issue.

I suspected something similar. Hence I tried installing different OS, tried playing a game or two before installing a second OS, worked on big photoshop files to replace the cached files, yet no difference.

Thanks for guiding in the right direction.

Can you think what can be done or I should discard this drive.

I will appreciate a frank opinion

You don't need to discard the drive you only need to zero out the caching.

Delete the partitions using FDISK and then redo the drive with one partition and load in a fresh copy of the OS you want to use on this drive. If that fails see if you can get a replacement from where you bought it or give Seagate a call they may have an ace up their sleeve. Good Luck!
