The only settings I have changed in the bios are the ones for raiding the harddrives. I've tried a single SSD and HDD on default settings already to no avail. This is why I think it is either a power or cpu issue. I'm just wary to drop $100 for an 800w power supply for that to not be the issue. I have an older NVidia GeForce 9800 GTX I'll try swapping in, but that was fairly power-hungry in its day too.
Thanks for the suggestions. Hopefully I'll get this thing into windows. Getting tired of looking at the bios
<edit> I just put in the older videocard in and tried to start the system in safe mode incase the installer already had drivers for the othercard installed.
The system hung while loading disk.sys
, then abrupty shut down.
I assume this means it is still a harddrive issue its running into, and not power then?
