Abit IN9 32-Max, 2gig OCZ, E6300, WD 250g, Windows 7 v7264 x32
NO issues, everything runs fine.
Removed WD 250g and switched to Samsung F1 Spinpoint 750g drive (which is essentially my old gamming system running on xp).
Cannot install Windows 7, regardless of version, locks halfway through install. Hard reset and Drive is no longer detected.
I experienced this same issue back when I had the gaming system and the only way to fix it was to disable Command Qeueing ( which was recommended by users with same issue ). The problem seems to be with the nvidia chipset ( in this case 6) not playing nice with some Samsung drives. However, I was able to install XP and of course disable this option. PC then ran fine for a year, no lockups.
Basically same system, but will not allow Windows 7 to install. Ive tried different sata ports, different partitions, different Windows 7 versions, different bios settings... Always locks halfway through.
I would appreciate any suggestions, thanks in advance.
