Hey, when i tried to boot from my 600Gb WD Caviar Black (SATA-3) with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit it failed. When i turn my computer on it comes up with my motherboard's boot image then the monitor says there is no signal. I had a 160Gb WD Caviar Blue (IDE) but after hours of forum searching I removed the IDE cable from it. Then because my problem is so particular, I decided to sign up to a forum and post my problem to you brilliant guys.

Test the HDD using the WD disk tools. Are you getting any beep codes? Disconnect the HDD and try booting...you should be able to see the BIOS information. If not, it isn't a HDD issue.
