Yes, rightclick it to Burn (or Send to) with Windows Image Burner to CD. Boot and make sure we see everything when you snap pics.

Ok here are shots with all drives connected. I don't see anything that would cause it to not boot. But that's why I'm here right? Would you like for me to disconnect all but the main drive and have a pic of it?

In BIOS try UEFI only.

Post a pic if you Disable CSM. Some BIOS only need it to boot both Legacy/UEFI, others to even install Win7 at all.

The boot order icon mess is not clear at All. Should be Windows Boot Manager. What is it?

In boot order it is windows boot manager uefi listed 1st. I have csm enabled and everything set to uefi. FYI Windows installed fine with it set that way with only the main 3tb os drive installed, everything goes to @#$@ when i try to add any additional drives. I updated to latest bios lastnight hoping that would help but it didnt. So what would you want me to try next? I am actually posting this from computer and not my phone so it is kind of nice!

This is a brand new MOBO could it be having a problem?

Please disable CSM mode and try booting Windows. If the same error message appears, boot Windows setup DVD in UEFI mode and run "Startup Repair" up to three times.

Startup Repair

If "Startup repair" can't auto fix the problem, we can try recreating UEFI boot configuration files manually.

Ok i disabled csm in bios and tried to boot. The bios came up with warning that it cannot boot uefi with csm disabled and automatically enabled csm in the bios. So i tried to set it to auto instead of enabled, i got a windows could not start screen giving me either repair or start windows normally. I chose normally and it boots.

I specifically asked you to post a picture of the choices available if you disable CSM in BIOS setup. For some reason you thought you could just ignore that step as though I had not even typed it. Why?

Please do that now. I'm tired of giving you steps that you ignore. Even if you don't care, others will need to know what choices must be made to run Win7 successfully on this model.

No that was after I disabled csm with only boot drive. Once windows started (with csm set auto) I tried with slave drives and no go.

I am not ignoring what your asking. .if I disable csm bios forces itself to turn csm back on. If I set bios to disable csm there are NO choices. It says disabled and nothing else is listed. period. I had never tried csm auto (which also in auto I have no other choices listed) if you still want screen shot of that I will post it but it is a waste if time.
if I try to boot after adding slave drives I try and run repair 3 times and get this. I will upload pics of bios with csm disable.
