    Default GA-EX58-UD5 -won't load windows 7

    Hello great forum, lots of good advice here.
    Wonder if anyone can help with my problem, specs below: -

    • GA-EX58-UD5 rev 1.0 firmware F7
    • i920 S1366
    • Sapphire HD4770
    • Corsair 6GB 1600 mhz DDR3 CL8
    • WD Caviar 1TB S300 SATA

    Everything seemed fine until I tried to load Windows 7. "FF" appears on the board, hard disk appears in "Integrated Peripherals". The beginning of Windows 7 installation takes forever - long periods of inactivity before anything happens. Eventually it expands the files, and does a reboot. From there, it goes as far as the Windows logo with "Updating registry" below that - then it reboots again. After the reboot it goes to the "Start in safe mode... etc" menu, doesn't matter what I choose here it just keeps rebooting.
    Totally baffled
    Cheers

    edit: also, in the advanced DRAM features, just noticed that the memory frequency is stuck on 1066 mhz. My DRAM is 1600 mhz -- could this setting be causing the problems I'm having?
    Thanks for any advice.

    ff means everything is running fine,you should update the bios to the latest one using q-flash read up on how to do this first as its risky...you can adjust your ram speed later when your up and running it wont cause trouble on auto speed

    I do advise you update your BIOS. Please grab the latest BIOS from here >>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/giga...st-bios-28441/

    And update using Qflash, here is a guide >>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    As for your slow install, this is due often to Floppy enabled in the BIOS when one is not connected. SO disable this if you do not have one connected.


    I can help you with your full settings, but please update your BIOS first then grab a template from my signature and give me your new current full settings and specs and I will advise back on setting things up properly. Auto is not going to cut it, as you already have surmised.

    thanks for the help guys, installed F9e now and it hasn't made any difference to the reboots. cured the slow windows install by adding the floppy as you suggested though - was much quicker this time.
    Not much hope with fixing this reboot thing though :(
    perhaps a bad cpu or mboard?
    I'll take a look at the template in your sig next.

    for corsair ram you should power down pc and leave switched on at the wall then insert your ram modules and press power button on pc to boot up,try testing each ram stick in the first white slot from cpu socket it should boot up with each stick

    Can you try switching SATA cables or checking that HDD power and SATA are connected tight.
    Unplug and replug fixed a reboot/crash issue I just had: I think I knocked the SATA cable on my mobo or SSD when redoing my tubing.....

    thanks, all this has been useful in eliminating things that could be wrong. turns out it is an issue with either the hard drive or the SATA controller, or something related. Just proven this by installing windows 7 onto an IDE drive, works perfect.
    I tried a few different SATA cables into different sockets on the motherboard and it made no difference
    I'm trying to run the SATA hard disk as a single drive (no raid) - is it correct that i don't need to install any drivers to get it working like that? Trying to run it on the orange cable as shown in the manual.
