I have restored a system (Dell inspiron 530s) to a factory restore and after the restore completed successfully the machine powers up and I get the normal CMOS beep and then the machine restarts again. It does this over and over. I ran the disk utility on the utility partition and it checks fine. I have replaced the SATA cable and moved the drive to a different SATA slot with the same results. Any idea what is causing this?
