    Default Standalone diagnostic for GA-P55A-UD7?

    I have spent more than a month trying to recover from a problem that gives me a BSOD 7b. I have tried 2 clean installs and when I install drivers from the Gigabyte CD that comes with the board, the system just keeps rebooting until windows decides to put me in the repair window.

    I have been using UBCD4Win. I just tried to load it to see if I could run chkdisk on my drives (I have used 3 different drives, and windows repair has checked them all) and it went through all of its' loading processes, entered Win XP and then it got a 7B. Anyone have any idea what that points to. I am beginning to think hardware failure within a controller in the chipset.

    Does anyone know of a thorough diagnostic (preferably standalone) for the motherboard hardware. That would be an immense help.

    7b error is related to AHCI, did you try IDE mode?

    IDE is not acceptable. There are removable drives on this controller. Not to mention the performance hit.

    I am not trying to get the software running here. I need to determine if the board is bad.

    Use windows 7 not XP

    XP is used by UCBD4Win. The machine uses Win 7 64.

    Do you get the 7b error with win 7 64?

    Yes, as I stated in the original post. Clean install blows up when installing drivers. Do you know of a diagnostic?

    As I know 7b BSOD is related to AHCI, windows 7 already have all the AHCI drivers so no need to install any external drivers.
    Did you try with just a single drive loaded with Win7, maybe there is a device causing the problem.
    Also make sure you are using the intel controller.
