    Start up problems on 4 O.S. installed Need help

    webresearch

      Good evening,

      I have installed on one disk WD Caviar black Sata 3 1 TB on port 2: 3 windows 7 64 bit and 1 Windows 8 64 bit. When I boot on two O.S. s the RST works perfectly, regarding the other 2 (win 7 & win 8)   the start us process is slow and it takes one to two additional reboots to get the O.S. s to accelerate at the start up. All other functions operate properly (video rendering with very satisfying processing time)

      The processor is overclocked at 4500. In the bios raid Intel configuration the accelerated disk is marked as unsynced. I have tried to sync it without success.

       

      In the INTEL bios raid configuration that appears before the boot manager, the hard disc set up is the following:

      1) Port 0: SSD 56 Gb for caching with the indication normal

       

      2)Port 1: WD 1,8 Tb non raid HD

       

      AND 3) Port 2: is the WD 1Tb non raid HD with the 4 OSs installed (3 win 7 64 bit and 1 Windows 8 64 bit concumers preview) This disc has the green star and indicates that is the accelerated disc. Pls dont ask me why I have installed 4 OSs, I can ony say that the other members of my family they prefer to have their own OS and not user's status.

       

      Should I disable acceleration, connect the disc that I want to accelerate to port 1 the other (WD 1,8 Tb) to port 2 and enable acceleration again?

       

      Could you please let me know if there are any adjustments or corrections that I can make to get all O.S. to accelerate at the start up?

       

      I know that installing 4 OS s it is not common, but hey we are here to experiment and if there is a solution to this problem I want to find out or I will die trying (or my pc will die)

       

       

      Thank you
