    First thing I would do is update your BIOS,f7 is pretty old,I find f12 BIOS to be the best regarding voltages/stability,might not be the operating system

    ??? So you have windows installed but when you choose Shut down from the start menu the system reboots?

    Is the brand new system build or is the system in your sig?

    If this the system in your sig what were you using before win7. Have you changed anything before tring to install windows 7.

    If this is a brand new system that you are building. You might want to try clearing the cmos. Also might want to try updating the bios. Also make sure you are installing the must updated drivers for your system.

    Ill ask again... Please give more information about your exact system and problem.

    Hello,

    thanks for feedback.

    BIOS: I already use F12 after check (only used Gigabyte info for answer, and they list wrong BIOS for this maiboard there, perhaps copy of Revision 2. files?? see: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1366 - GA-X58A-UD5 (rev. 1.0))

    The restart after shutdown error is actually due to a setting in Widnwos 7 i discovered ( "automaticaly restart on error"), which after disabling gives me a blue screen after shutdown instead of restart.

    I have loaded fail safe settings and no more blue screen. I will try suggetsed settings here (same RAM , board, CPU) and do some tests. --> http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...x58-ud5-2.html

    I still would appreciate if someone know of a good article on windows 7 installation, it would help. I am missing the inside knowledge i have on xp.

    You are looking at the wrong motherboard. You have the EX58-ud5. The board you posted the link for is X58A-ud5 which has 2 revisions 1 and 2.

    This is the correct link for your board. GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1366 - GA-EX58-UD5 (rev. 1.0)

    If you are getting a BSOD on shutdown it sounds like a memory error. Wazza and I both have this board. I used to have this board. Windows 7 should install just fine with no added steps. Yes drivers need to be installed for the chip set and lan sound and so forth but nothing not allow windows to boot or shut down.

    In your sig you have listed Win7 32bit. You have 6gb of ram why not use the 64bit version.

    Are you installing any software or hardware after the windows install?

    There is nothing majorly different from installing XP vs installing Win7.

    What is the stop error on the bsod. It should be labeled stop 0x000000124. In my sig is a list of error codes and their correction.

    You may want to try running memtest86 and check for memory errors.

    Thank you guys for your help.
    I indeed googled the wrong board.
    I am using 32bit as one of mine softwares doesnt support 64bit. The 6GB is there since it was the most value and speed.
    I have rechecked about the W7 install and really there is no difference, i simply pre-install (via F6 method) Intel SATA and Gigabyte SATA drives, and create an answer file to also preinstal intel inf files from a flash drive. So thats good.

    Regarding blue screens, I have used the settings as mentioned here ( http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...x58-ud5-2.html ) and all is well. Since the RAM is specced at 1333Mhz and the settings suggest to use 1066, I have then switched to 1333MHz (without changing any other values). After 1st restart from Windows I had BSOD. It disappeared too quickly to note the error code. Since then I cannot recreate this BSOD. I will keep using with these settings and see if any problems.

    Secondely I would like to increase the QPI Link Speed to maximum (currently x44), but I am not sure if this will bring much benefit to my audio production workstation. I also I would have to increase some Voltages probbaly, which I really want to keep at normal values. This system is about stability and already provides a sufficient power to me. Though increasing the performance without any downside is good:)
