    Please post your bios settings using this bios template or the one below it.

    1) List your system components in your forum signature.
    --> User CP tab (upper left corner of web page)
    --> select Edit Signature
    --> enter your hardware components (brand, model, etc.)
    --> include your bios version
    --> preview
    --> Save when complete
    Be sure to include your bios version, motherboard version, power supply, cpu heatsink/fan setup and the model numbers of all components.

    2) Link to your ram's full specifications.

    3) Fill in the generic bios template with your bios settings.
    --> Fill in Auto where appropriate.
    --> Update "??" values with what is displayed in your bios.
    For EP4x motherboards, using either of these EP43/45 bios templates.

    4) Include a screenshot that displays:
    Memset using the SPD and ">>" tabs
    cpu-z CPU and Mainboard screens (several instances can be run at the same time)
    EasyTune6 --> TUNER tab --> ADVANCE tab --> VOLTAGE tab (only the Voltage tab is needed)

    Links for these programs are in the Latest Overclocking Programs, System Info, Benchmarking, & Stability Tools thread.

    That's actually OK, it should report success only if there was some change that required it. I was thinking maybe the CMOS battery is low.
    Did boot fail those 3-4 times you have tried?

    Just saw your settings, were the changes you made nesessary?
    Yes at 1066 ram needs to be set to it's specs for DDR-1066, at stock settings with XMP auto you can leave it on auto, just check BIOS HWmonitor that it is not overvoltedt too much otherwise set it to a values a bit lower then it's specs.

    Well DRAM voltage is set correctly to 2.1v, apparently set to auto.

    I wouldn't think this is a memory related problem, though if you want to test this you can set Performance Enhance to standard and XMP to disabled and use the ram at DDR-667 settings and see if the problem persists.

    The boot hard drive is SATA or IDE?

    Please include Memset's main screen (click on ">>" icon) along with the SPD screen.
    The rest of the screen-shot is good.
    Do either of your memory modules have a sticker on them that says to limit your DRAM voltage to 2.1 volts?

    The sticker says 2.1V
    Here is the pic from memset.
    I'll pick this up back on monday since i'm leaving for the weekend.

    thanks guys.

    Maybe i will get back with a bright idea.............

    It is a SATA.
    Although i do have also a second drive,a IDE, on which i installed Win7 RC, i have the same problem when i boot to it.
