    Another thing maybe the hdd is on its way out or the optical drive is not in the boot order. This might be the reason why it's stuck on the Panasonic boot screen...can not find W7.

    It is listed in the boot order. So the problem is either the drive went south or the adapter / caddy went south.
    Since it shows the hard drive model number, My first guess is the hard drive, but it is truly a 50/50 possibility.

    Are you running any special programs? What version of Windows?
    If it was my computer, I would buy the proper hard drive caddy and a solid state hard drive, as they are cheap now.
    probably a total $120 investment. The solid state drive will be a lot faster and more durable.
    If you are really lost, a member of the board(sadlmkr) could prepare a drive and caddy for you. When you get the setup, you just plug it in and start the computer. He does good work for a fair price.
    I would do it, but I do not own a CF74 anymore.
