    So you can't boot into win7 ? or does it hang when logged in win7.
    If possible, try safe mode and check device manager if all drivers are without conflict and installed.
    See if you could update drivers where possible.

    If you can't boot into win7, and you can in xp,
    then check in your bios if sata is set as IDE or AHCI. There should be a setting somewhere that controls this.

    If it's set as AHCI, then reset it as ide and see if win7 boots and works.

    If this is the case, you will need to make an adjustment in registry if you want the drive to work in AHCI mode again, so get back to me.

    There could be a possibikity that your hard drive have bad sectors. I have experienced it my self that after i installed win 7 the computer either slows down ,hanged or got the blue screen. I used hard disk regenerator 1.71 to check my hard drive and it found 5 bad sectors. Was able to fix the bad sector problem via the same program.Formated the drive and installed win 7 again and it worked normally.
