    Please see the last link in my signature for post codes. I am not sure how far you have got along with this so far, so for now I will leave it up to you in regards to post codes/error beeps.

    No drivers are needed at all to install a OS unless you are using AHCI or RAID. Of course, if you get the PCI.Sys error that is due to your XP install disk being Pre-SP1, so you just need a newer or slipstreamed install disk.

    Can you please tell me what ports (Color and #) you are connecting your hard drive and CD/DVD drives to, and how you are trying/wanting to install your OS IE: AHCI, RAID, Or normal IDE

    Windows 7 should install no problem for you with no additional drivers needed at all, even if you are using RAID/AHCI. Are you sure your burn was good? Can you or have you tested this disk on another setup to be sure it will fully install?

    While we wait to hear back from each other, please be sure you have your CD/DVD drive on the last Intel SATA Port (Blue SATA2_5)

    Ok, here we go.... the beeps im talking about are 2 long beeps and continuous, they beep all the time, even after entering the OS. Ive moved the RAM around and checked if it was detected by the BIOS, everything is fine, I also checked the graphics card and even replaced it with another one, still beeping. The HDD though some times shows up in the BIOS sometimes doesnt, its a SEAGATE Barracuda 7200.11, it is connected on the SATA2_0.

    "No drivers are needed at all to install a OS unless you are using AHCI or RAID." - So in the SATARAID/AHCI MODE should i leave it in Disable?

    My DVD drive is connected to the IDE connector.

    And yes, the CD of win7 was tested on other systems and runs fine.

    Can you record and post this beep? So it continues while you use windows as well? If so, you may need to disable all alarms and then enable one at a time until you find the culprit as it sounds like it may be a temp or fan alarm if it still beeps within windows.

    Yes, set the following for NO RAID Or AHCI

    Integrated Peripherals

    Intel Controller (Yellow Ports)
    SATA RAID/AHCI Mode (Intel ICH10R Southbridge) ............. Disabled
    SATA Port0-3 Native Mode ................................... Enabled (or Disabled, both will work)

    Gigabyte/J.Micron Controller (Purple Ports)
    Onboard SATA/IDE Device (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ............. Enabled
    Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ........... IDE

    Your IDE CD drive, do you have the jumper set in the correct place? And do you have the drive on the correct place in the cable? Master is the end of the cable, slave is the middle.

    If you have a second device, CD/DVD, or Hard drive also connected to the IDE Ribbon cable please remove it until you are done installing. Set your jumper to master or CS (Cable Select) then place the CD/DVD drive on the end of the IDE cable.

    With all of that you should have no issues installing, if you continue to have issues I see no reason why you would unless your drive is maybe faulty or you have a bad IDE cable (Try another) and or also test your hard drive with Seagate SeaTools

    Ok, the DVD is now on Master, and Ive altered the Integrated Peripherals has you suggested, now the HDD is detected as well. In the BIOS says that its on the IDE Channel 1 Master and DVD drive on IDE Channel 5 Master.

    Ive recorded the beep sound but the file is too big to upload it (334K), cant make it any smaller, its in MP3 already and in a Zip file. May I e-mail you the sound?
    Also, how can I disable these alarms you talked about to check if this beep is one of them?

    I was thinking, cant this be something that is not set right in the BIOS?

    The alarms are in the "PC Health Status" Section of the BIOS, disable them all and see if the beep goes away.

    You can upload the file to any host and post the link here, like mediashare, rapidshare, ect.

    Sounds like you should be good to go with the disk/drives then, do not make any changes in the Standard CMOS page of the BIOS and be sure you are using optimized defaults not fail safe

    Curious thing is that the only 2 alarms that are connected are the CPU Warning Temperature and the CPU FAN Fail Warning, I've now disable them.
    Everything else is disabled, only CPU Smart Fan Control is Enable and CPU Smart Fan Mode is AUTO - Beeps still there!!

    I've uploaded the beeps to rapidshare, heres the link:

    Im imagining that this issue might not have anything to do with the alarms, the POST is FF, I've installed windows, played Crysis in max res and the beeps are still there....i dont know what to do anymore.

    let me just confirm, FF means Fully functional, it means the board has posted without issue.

    What I would like you to do is disassemble the system, power it up out of the case on a wooden table, with only the core essentials, 1 piece of ram, no hdd, power supply, graphics, cpu & hsf, pc speaker.

    Your motherboard has got onboard power and reset so you dont need to worry about shorting pins to turn it on and off out of the case.

    See if it still makes those beeps when assembled out of the case as i suggest.

    If it stops beeping, try again out of the case with all your memory installed on the board, and see if the beeping starts.

    Also, one question, are you using the top most PCIe 16x socket to run the gfx card or one of the lower ones?

    I did that already, I've taken out the board and took everything out, left it with just 1 stick of RAM, tried with the other sticks individualy, changed the gfx card, changed the slot of the gfx card = still beeps.
    Currently the gfx card is in the top slot, I've swaped it around like I said above, but no success.
    The weird thing is, it doesnt even give the normal "bip" when it switches on, no, it starts already with these 2 long continuous beeps.
    I think I have to send this MB back and ask for another.
