    Default Can't install Windows on P67A-UD4

    I bought a P67A-UD7 & couldn't get it to stay powered up, so I RMA'd it.
    The RMA has been very slow, so I bought a P67A-UD4 to use in the mean time.
    With a minimum installation on a cardboard box, it will post & run.
    I installed the DVD drive & still good.
    I installed a Ocz IBIS240GB SSD & it went into boot loop & wouldn't post.
    I figured maybe the IBIS got damaged by being in the faulty UD7, or the IBIS was faulty & killed the UD7.
    So I bought a Kingston 128GB SSD.
    SSD in port SATA3_0 & optical drive in SATA2_4 SATA on Default IDE mode.
    Win 7 install got to where you enter your country & keyboard options & it BSOD 0X00000124
    I tried SATA to AHCI & got the BSOD in almost the same place
    I tried 1 stick of memory, & I tried 3 different kits of memory.
    Never got passed selecting the hard drive to install to before 0X00000124
    I disabled the lan,sound, usb3, & e-Sata
    I removed the SSD & tried a new WD 500GB SATA hard drive, got to the same place.
    I run 3 hours (2 1/2 passes) of memtest86 on the 16GB Corsair Vengence ram I intended to use for 24/7, without an error.
    I tried installing Vista 64 & got to where the green bars run across before BSOD.

    Apart from my 580GTX & my Corsair AX1200, everything is new.

    Update:

    I cleared the Cmos & left the battery out overnight.
    Tried a single stick of Corsair TR3X6G1866C9D @ 1333

    Memory tried:
    Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A 1600C9
    Corsair TR3X6G1866C9D
    Corsair CM3X1024-1800C7D
    G-Skill F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ
    G-Skill F3-19200CL9D-4GBPIS
    All single stick @ 1333
    Sometimes 1.50 vdimm, sometimes 1.66
    Also tried vtt 1.20

    This morning tried a different video card.

    Always BSOD 0X00000124 @ around the same place.

    Don't have another 1155 CPU to try.

    Edit: I flashed the bios from F3 to F7b, but still the same result.

    124 BSOD means you need to increase QPI/Vtt, or more often on P67 this means Vcore is set to low.

    I did try vtt on 1.20v a couple of times, but I never considered vcore.
    I'm not liking a 2600K that needs extra vcore to run stock speed.
    But I'll get it back out of the box & have another go. Thanks.

    If you are trying 1 stick of memory at only 1333Mhz then you can leave QPI/Vtt on auto (Stock will be used and should be fine).

    I did the same, didn't think of Vcore when I saw 124 BSOD as in the past it's been QPI/Vtt, but now I see it often on P67 with too little Vcore.

    It could just be the BIOS is still quirky, I note a lot of issues still, so they have plenty to work out I think.

    Thank mate, after 12 hours of ****ing about, that's all it was.
    Windows is installed & I can finally install this thing in my case.

    Do you no if any UD4 bios supports the Ocz IBIS HDSL SSD?
    The UD7 showed it as a bootable device with the shipped bios, but this thing won't post with it in, just boot loop.

    Haha, nice man!

    So just a bump in Vcore was all it needed? Probably due to how turbo works with these boards, some auto vcore's may not be enough or something?

    I do think they were adding revo support to the latest BIOSes, not sure about IBIS? Have you looked or asked at their forum, they may know?

    If you are not on the very latest BIOS (F7f) please try it, then if no luck send in a report and ask them to add it in
