Require full system spec and components used in the home build together with settings.. As thats what I suspect where the issue lyes

without knowing what the error messages are, i doubt if anybody will be able to give positive advice. also you will not get any cd drives show up in safe mode, as this what windows does, bloody pain if ya need to use a cd. only thing that i can suggest is to load his version of windows back over itself and see if everything is ok.

If you want major problems the load windows on top of its self.. NEVER ever do that if you do not want a remort and re-installation then install windows into a new folder..
