In the device manager, click Show>Hidden Devices, and uninstall EVERYTHING under Disk Drives. That should clear out the old HDD reg entries.....

I would remove them all, and then reboot when prompted. Windows will redetect the proper drive after you boot....

Wow, I just started typing for some more ideas, and then I saw the email come through that you accepted it. It worked after all?
