So, I recently got an MBR virus and after (and partially during) removal I began to get frequent BSOD's and freezes (as in, no debug info simply stop doing any operation), and those BSOD's didn't provide any useful debug information (no message in all caps such as "IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL"). I ran a chkdsk and it came out clean and I also ran a Windows Memory Diagnostic (2 passes), and that came out clean as well.
Please note that there is absolutely no chance of this MBR virus still there, I deleted all partitions of all of my hardrives because I couldn't find a working and less destructive method to remove it (virus was Alueron.A as reported by Microsoft Security Essentials)
I'm assuming it's a problem with the hard-drive itself, I'm typing this message on a LiveCD of Ubuntu 10.10 AMD64 and there doesn't seem to be any problem, at least not right now.
But here's my problem, 74gb of storage for software isn't enough for me. I want to know if I can have my two 37gb hard-drives as the place for my Windows folder and User settings, and my applications be on a folder on my 1.5tb hard-drive. Also, whenever I install Windows 7 it always automatically installs the bootloader to my 1.5tb drive, and I want it to be on the same hard-dirve it installs Windows itself to.
My current computer specifications are:
