I didn't have any problems installing windows. I found out the first problem was it required a power supply (the converter). (Guess sometimes reading instructions will be a good idea). I found a pin on the CSEL position then moved it to the master one. Still nothing. I'm about to see if I move it to slave if it will work. I have a Samsung 1 TB hard drive on its own ribbon. The motherboard has 6 sata drives.
