    Default Extreme 6 windows big install problem.

    have been trying to install windows 7 since i got this mobo yesterday and I have a few different problems with trying to install windows 7.

    1) When i boot it in ahci mode from the dvd drive it does not load windows 7 install. It stays at a black screen with a tiny blinking bar.

    2) when i change it from ahci to ide it lauches to the windows 7 install but does not go past 0% while expanding the windows 7 files.

    I updated the bios to the newes version and still no luck. Im running out of ideas. Never seen anything like this. Anyone got any ideas?

    If you need more information let me know. Thank you.

    and third.

    When i try the dvd boot in uefi instead of the normal ahci i get this message

    "windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. on EFI systems, windows can only be installed to GPT DISKS.

    I only tried this mode as a last effort
