Windows 7: Self restart when installing windows right on uncompressing files 0%

Self restart when installing windows right on uncompressing files 0%

Iv had the exact same problem

So had a friend hit me up for a custom computer with a budget of $2500
I ordered all the parts through PCcase and are as follows

Coolmaster cm690 usb3 case
Asus m5a99x evo mb
Amd fx-8150
G.Skill ripjaws f3-1600c9d-16gxm ddr3 (2*8gb)
Ocz vertex 3 240gb ssd
Corsair hydro h80 CPU cooler
Gigabyte GeForce gtx 670 oc 2gb
Antec HCG 900w psu
LG ch12ls28 odd
Windows 7 pro (ledgit)

Long story short, everything is detected with in the bios but the boot device LED stays solid on, I've booted it from a Windows 7 DVD then THE COMPUTER RESTARTS?!? It's only restarted after I've booted from the DVD, sometimes when it's at the language part but always does it when its at the install part right at uncompressing files at 0%
Now I've but about 6 rigs over the years without a problem and it's really getting to me. I've tried most sata settings (IDE & AHCI), different hdds, different sata cables & ports, cleared the CMOS(removed mains power, removed the CMOS battery, moved jumper waited 5min, held down power button, waited 5min, replaced battery, moved jumper back, replace mains power) the mb memOK function gives the RAM the all clear as well as the windows memcheck after 5 passes, everything was seated with a wrist strap, I've checked the ssd with sata to USB interface and my laptop gives it the all clear (oh yeh I chech with a diff HDD) and the mb has the latest firmware, USB flashed.
This is not my computer, its for a friend, so anything would be great, my friend understands and is being great about the situation, custom builds can have problems but they can be fixed.
Again any help would be great!!!

1. disconnect as much as possible.
2. listen for any beeps from the mobo
3. download the manual and all documentation available for the mobo

If all is to no avail, exchange the mobo.

Post is all good with 1 beep but still boot device LED on, I keep reading in other forums about crap sata controllers in asus MBs, the latter could be the case.... Not cool

sounds good. Be sure that bios, chipset, and drivers are all the latest by going to the asus website.

Sorry I don't understand, I flashed the latest bios, how do you update drivers without an OS?

Where did you get the DVD? Did you burn it yourself? If so burn another at 4x speed using ImgBurn. Write the latest installer ISO to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in dropdown, boot under USB, REmovable or HD's.

Seen what happens

I don't really think reseating the CPU or burning a fresh iso of win7 (slow speed) will get me any where. From your profile stats what do you say Tex?

Answer the question: Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself?

I say, let me know if the mobo is functioning correctly after the bios update.

Mobo needs to cooperate.

If mobo is ok, then the answers to Greg's question will be needed. At least as to where you got the Win 7.
If you downloaded an iso, then you can put the iso directly onto a usb stick without ever burning a DVD.
