Windows 7: P5Q Deluxe slow on install

07 Jul 2009   #11


I found that I only see this if I have AHCI turned on (for any of the disk controllers). With it off, Win7 installs and runs fine. With it on, the machine is still mid install even after running overnight.

I meant to check last night (to confirm I definitely have this exact motherboard, although I'm fairly certain I do) but there are multiple places in the bios to turn AHCI on. I found any of them caused the issue - even the J-Micron (?) setting for the additional IDE channel where I currently have my DVD drive hooked up.

For the record, I had the same problem installing Vista.

Make sure you have your floppy drive controller turned OFF in the BIOS if you do not have a floppy drive connected. Vista and 7 both seek for the floppy drive during setup, and if it does not find one it takes FOREVER to timeout.
