    " If you use the ASRock install disc that came with the mobo then it WILL install what you need! And if you install the ASRock suite then you will find that you have ALL you need. If you only install the bare minimum then (from experience) you will be going back and back again installing sw. Remember! You can always delete if you don't need."

    "Which brings me to what you probably planned from the start, to use the automatic driver installation program on the disk provided with the board. That usually installs everything, which is overkill but relatively harmless. Many users consider many of these programs to be "bloatware" and worthless. I don't disagree with that, but to each their own. It also can be a learning experience to realize, "... why did I install this program...". Don't forget, anything can be removed any time."

    The first quote comes from me the second from parsec. Tell me I am wrong but don't both quotes say the same thing???. I am sorry for trying to help. Profjim you are a moderator? Shouldn't you be welcoming participation? And parsec...I may not know as much as you and my terminology might not have been correct but I knew how to help him and all the rest was really incidental in it DID NOT ANSWER HIS QUESTION! Which was "What do I do now?" You basically made me feel like I had no right to join in. Inferred I was wrong because what? I have not passed your little induction ceremony to join your little "click"? Let me tell you there is ALWAYS someone that knows more than you and I should not have to defend myself to you! This is how you have made me feel! You have lost me to tweaktown forums. Big deal you say? That's where you have just no idea!

    My response was entirely inspired by this:

Also that the dvd drive that the win 7 disc is in is set to SATA not EUFI. As long as these two settings are done (the DVD mainly) you will be fine moviemad1. You don't have to install your OS, shut down your system. Open the case up connect your data drive/s. Do it all first. Plenty of people will tell you to watch this and do that because that's how it used to be but as I said, things are a hell of a lot more user friendly now.

    And if you are worried then just turn off your data drives in the BIOS. Hit del when you post, enter your BIOS, along the top of your screen there will be icons (I am not sure if your mouse will be active in the BIOS. It is on z87 and I am pretty sure it is on z77 chipset as well but don't take my word for it, they all meld into one after a while) just scroll across to the hard drive icon, select and then disable all the drives that won't be your boot drive.

    So now you have covered all bases.

    And profjim...maybe you learned something here? Then again...maybe not
    Is that how you try to be friendly to people in a forum? Whether intended or not, can you see my point? Mainly the last comment.

    If I have a different take on, or correct a technical point, that does not amount to a personal attack. Which is how I saw that last comment. I may be wrong about that, just being honest.

    No cliques here, you don't know how much I hate that, experienced them myself. The more the merrier in this forum, sorry if you can count the regulars on one hand, just how it is, never gave it any thought.

    You're more than welcome here, certainly not my personal forum, I was simply defending a friend.

    Read from the beginning parsec. Your friend's first comment
    @moviemad1

    Welcome to the forum.

    Wait for parsec or - wardog - to reply, they are the ASRock experts.
    was basically don't listen to him he doesn't know what he is talking about.

    Is that friendly?

    Then I asked him to explain what he was talking about and he says

    Naw, telling you would be too easy.

    Do a web search using: *windows 7 installation mbr problem* and you'll learn for yourself. In otherwords I am not demeaning myself to answer the likes of you! Search yourself idiot! Then the smart arse little smile-the exact reason I put one in!

    Is that friendly?

    It is easy to partially read or hear when you only want half the story. Read it all from the beginning.
    His words after I had replied the very first time were "wait for pasec or wardog" and yours "I was just defending my friend". Whether you want to admit it or not you have yourselves a "superior" little clique.

    Everyone is welcome here? Then why do I feel unwelcome???

    Wow. I see this thread is progressing quite well

    @ moviemad1 If you haven't run away and you're still here, is the WD 1TB mechanical drive going to be used for programs too, or simply as a storage drive?

    Quite apart from anything else in this thread, I did notice that the OP did NOT list an optical drive (CD/DVD/whatever) in his list of components.

    It is entirely possible he is installing (as I did today) from a USB stick. If so, there is one thing he must do. Go in to BIOS and make sure that FAST BOOT is disabled.

    If it is not disabled, the PC will simply not recognize the USB stick as a boot drive. This has to be done BEFORE you start installing if you are installing from a USB storage device.
    (and since Microsoft give you the option of downloading an ISO of the Windows Install, it is entirely possible the OP has it on a USB stick).

    At risk of throwing more fuel on the fire...

    Interesting interpretation, his statement sounds like honesty to me. Your reaction to that is to beat him up? There's a term for that, bullying.

    I can't count how many time ProfJim has used those exact terms in a similar situation, with the same smilie. You happen to be the first person to react to it as you did. "I am not demeaning myself to answer the likes of you! Search yourself idiot!" Wow, IMO an extreme over-reaction. Sorry to say, you've read so much between the lines that is simply not there.

    Have you never seen questions in a forum that could be answered with a 30 second Google search? I've answered so many questions in forums with a 30 second Google search. I do it because I learn things all the time. The point of pushing others to do so is to reveal the world of information at their fingertips.

    So because you were apparently excluded from the group of experts, given your credentials of 17 posts in the forum, anyone who is a forum regular is part of a clique? I assume you don't feel welcome because your misinformation was corrected without apologies on my part? All you did is challenge a statement with nothing to back it up, or provide a method for others to confirm it.

    Also, your earlier statement that "So now you have covered all bases." as if all the OP's questions were answered, certainly did not do so. But you declaring the end of any more need for assistance should have been honored without question?

    Why do you feel unwelcome? You tell me. The clique I experienced in the past covered for one of the members by editing his posts to remove statements against me that were wrong and uncalled for. That did not happen here.

    ProfJim has requested wardog's and my help many times in the past, and yes he is a moderator. You can accuse me of clique-like behavior (which I take exception to), and what do you want me to do, leave the forum because you declare "clique"?
