Want to thank you all in advance Laybackbear , Davidw7, Gregrocker and ignatzat... Apreciate the help. I mostly just like learning and never really have a stable system, Well except for one..... I must say that windows 7 is a lot to learn compared to XP and 8.1 just getting started. I just needed a fresh start so I can get the Asus chipset drivers right. Giving it a go now..

I gave you very specific steps for how to handle drivers, which are also printed in red in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 so don't go off importing a lot of drivers like this is XP. Win7 is a driver-complete OS. No need to import any drivers unless some are missing after all Updates are installed.

sfmudd78 you are doing fine. Just follow Greg's Tutorial and instructions.

Sometimes slowing down a bit and reading the tutorial again does help.

I will go back to watching.

Ok Created Boot USB device, set up bios for UEFI, Particions were created for GPT.. Windows 7 started to install and about have way though it quit. Used my restore disk to reset to factory install. Maybe the ISO was bad, dont know. I am just going to see if Frys or ASUS will be able to get me a install disk so I can install to UEFI... Or Maybe Ill try it again with the software and not the manuel mode useing diskpart... Thanks for all the help. I am waiting for the mailman to come with my netzero mobile broadband devive.... And cleaning up my OEM install. Running pretty good right now but still want UEFI with secure boot...

This is why I said to use the automated option 1 to let Yumi write the ISO to stick. If you'd work with us it will get installed just like tens of thousands of others, including several who posted since you did who actually cooperated

There is nothing that Fry's can provide you any better than we have, which is the official Win7 ISO. This is the home of Win7.

Download ISO again from Clean Reinstall tutorial and this time write to stick using option one of UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows.

During the booted install delete all partitions to create and format New.

If it fails post back exact error or behavior. You may need settings adjusted in BIOS setup for CSM or Legacy.

clean install success but two win7 on one HD

Hi, first of all want to thank everyone that gave me good advice. So far you guys are batting 1,000.... I have found that persistance and trust is the key to getting the most difficult things done.. . I have backed up my OEM Asus install from Fry's after cleaning it up best i could. I had completly uninstalled AI Suite II and stoped the 3 servises to find out what it really does. Really for this motherboard it just really moniters and sets alarms. I do believe that in all it may have some effect on Intell Speed Step Tech.. but I think the memory hog service causes more harm than good. SO I was able to create a second partician on my one HD.. And made a boot DVD with a win 7 Home Premium and walla i now have a fresh install. I have been playing around and so far my transfer rates form HD to USB3 have gone up from 30 or 60 Mb-s to 100 or 200 Mb-s.. Going the other way from 5 or 6 Mb-s to 30 or 60 Mb-s. I have noticed that my CPU temps are up about 20 Degress F and core voltage around 1 volt instedd of .89..... Seems very stable and not a glitch so far. I am worried that the two particians have acces to each other. Should I go ahead and reinstall fresh right away?? or is it okay to play around a little more. I am hopping to end up with a UEFI GPT partician and HD set to AHCI. Now that I am getting decent perfomance I am pretty happy with the dumbed down ASUS cm6870... The CPU and Memory are performing outstanding and Evan the HD4000 onboard graphics scores really high. The one bottle neck seems to be the stock hard drive. Think of doing a striped raid with a couple of moderatly priced SATA 6 HD'S.. Any suggestions on the Hardrives. Or should I brake out and go for a SSD... I really dont want to dump a ton into this so-so computer. But it is working much better with changes I have made so far. I also heard that gigabyte is sounding out at ASUS for fake technology. I would be much happier if they didnt make it so hard to figure out the truth and get a clean copy of windows...

I would recommend not to use Raid in any fashion.
SSD's are always great. When you are done with this computer you can always remove the SSD and use it again in another computer.

What anti virus have you chosen to use?

So what about having the duel boot with windows seven on two particions on the same hard drive. Is it dangerous??? I can access all the files from each other...

Why do you want two WIn7's? Much better to have one perfect install. You can put the data on a separate data partition as discussed in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Go over those tutorial steps as they compile everything that works best for keeping a perfect install.
