    I am not installing RAID. 1 drive. Win 7 64. It could not be more vanilla if I tried. No use of CD that came with motherboard. Only drivers will be from this web site.

    Ah, no. This worked for months. It is not a new install. I have basic competence.

    Quick update so people don't have to read the whole thread.

    I started with a Win 7 64 system with the system on a RAID 0 array that was working fine. I deleted a program called BCU. I believe at the same time there was a MS update of some sort. Rebooted and BSOD 7b. I spent a month or so researching trying to repair that system. I created a single drive copy of the system and worked to fix that. Manually rebuilt the boot components. Never got it fixed.

    I have been using UBCD4Win to look at things. It loads a version of XP PE from CD. It builds itself in a ram disk and does not impact the installed drives. Occasionally that application loads all of the software and boots XP and then gets a BSOD 7b while starting XP. It seems to be a random phenomenon. Other times it loads XP just fine and it is usable with the utilities included.

    I have finally given up and did a clean install of Win 7 64 on a single drive. Cleared CMOS, installed F7 BIOS. Set things in the BIOS for my configuration. Drives are connected to the primary Intel disk controller. Running ACHI. Installed OK and I tried to get Gigabyte application to download drivers. I could not get past the opening screen on that web site. Tried repeatedly. Used CD that came with MB, knowing it would install old drivers. It seemed to work, but rebooting failed to get back into the OS. Restarted until windows offered to repair it. Didn't work. Reinstalled. Installed Catalyst for the video. OK. Tried another driver (not sure which) from this website. Reboot, BSOD 7b.

    I have been unable to find any diagnostic software to try to isolate an intermittent hardware problem. I found someone selling a PCI card to do that but no manual download to read and price upon request leads me to believe that buying a new MB would be a whole bunch cheaper.

    I am rather suspecting that something has gone wrong in the MB. And it is intermittent.

    That is where I am.

    Suggestions solicited.

    7B BSOD means the driver or setting for the BIOS is incorrect, for IDE/AHCI/RAID. If you are not seeing any drives listed in the Standard CMOS BIOS page, then you still have the BIOS set to AHCI or RAID

    Get all your drivers directly from the source, or from the webpage for your motherboard, no need to install any software to download drivers. And really that is how all this started right, you removed something related to that program, so just don't use it.


    Here is driver sources in case you aren't sure where to get things
