    Default New To Forums! And Desperate! EP45-UD3R Cant Install W7 BSOD and Cant boot from USB!

    Hi all, Im new to the forums and am in desperate need of help. Im not here to leech off your expertise as I will contribute back with any help I can provide.
    Ok so I consider myself to be pretty tech savvy, and This mobo is driving me insane. Every time I try a simply W7 64 Bit install it BSOD's at the "Expanding Windows Files" part. And Every time I attempt to boot from USB this happens.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Im on F12 Bios.

    I did both of those yesterday to get past another problem of W7 taking 45 minutes to actually initialize install and after I got past that problem I got stuck at the BSOD issues. Someone was telling me to try to plug my hard drive and optical drive into the purple GSATA ports. And I also read some people saying of a software that can compile my windows CD image with drivers for my board from the Gigabyte website so Ill attempt that if all else fails. Ill be home in a bit so ill try Memtestx86 to see if its the ram im using. Do you have any ideas why my USB Boot attempts look like that though? It works fine on my normal machine with USB which is an X58A-UD3R

    Also before trying the above, try to clear CMOS, remove the battery and short the CLR_CMOS pins for 30 minutes, with PSU turned off and capacitors discharged (press power button once). Boot with one memory module, load optimized defaults save and try to install windows/boot from USB, agan.
    Try the other memory module if it still fail, try different memory slots.

    What is the BSOD you get when you try to install windows?

    I don't recall seeing this screem before.

    Run a whole pass of latest memtest86+ then at least 5 times test #5 (press c, 1, 3, 5, enter, 0).

    So short the cmos? Is that safe? So take out the battery and turn it on then and after it shorts it will turn itself off and leave it there for 30 minutes?

    Just leave battery out 30mins,press power switch hold it in for 15 seconds put battery back in,this is with pc switched off at wall

    You shouldn't need any drivers with win7,it finds/installs all needed drivers for you,up to you then to update to latest versions off website later once windows is up n running

    Turn the PSU off or unplug from the wall if you don't have a switch on the PSU.
    Press the power button to discharge capacitiors.
    Remove the battery, and short the CLR_CMOS pins with a jumper.
    Wait 30 minutes, remove the jumper and place the battery back in it's place.
    Turn the PSU on and boot, enter BIOS, load optimized defaults, save and reboot.

    Normally shorting the CLR_CMOS pins for few seconds is enough, but sometimes lomger period even few hours needed.
    It is safe if you practice caution and don't break anything.

    Ok sorry to bother so let me confirm what to do step by step.
    Unplug my machine from my wall and switch the PSU to off.
    Remove the CMOS Battery
    Leave it out for 30 minutes
    After the 30 minutes hold down the power button on my computers case even though its unplugged for 15 seconds
    And put the battery back in
    Then turn the computer back on and try again?
    Also, Ill be installing on a new SSD, I read that AHCI is the best way to go for this?

    Discharge capacitors before removing the battery.
    I recommend jumping the CLR_CMOS also.

    Yes ACHI may help with SSD.
