Windows 7: New assembly ready to be fired up for the first time

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1
 
 

I don't have a 99 board but on my other Asus motherboards I don't use fast boot because at times some thing don't get loaded with Windows 7/64.

Windows experience index shows 7.8 :/ Processor is the lowest score
The yellow or orangish light is just below a unused fan plug and just above the front panel plugs for headphones...

Mike, this is your board. All I can tell from it is it may be the Standby Power LED (SB Power), which is good that it's on.

I went by a link posted in your other thread on what board you got, was it this one?

Sounds like this area? The other LED's in that area are listed in your manual. TPU is Turbo Processing Unit.

Derek, I have the Deluxe, I think he has the Sabertooth. But, he probably has that switch too. I think they all do.

No, I imagine he has the TPU too. All Asus boards do as far as I know. I just never use them.

If you have no System partition besides C then you didn't install to UEFI so will not have all features of the BIOS.

That's why I posted earlier to remind you how to be sure you got it installed to UEFI to sample the extra BIOS features.

That's why I later asked if you booted the DVD as a UEFI device.

If you have questions you only need to ask.

You are thinking of TPM (Trusted Platform Module) which is used with Bitlocker. I don't know what TPU stands for but you are correct that it is for automatic overclocking.

I have been running 6801 for a while now and I'm surprised at the number of things it is able to do for me. I'm running everything I want to, including Nero 8. Also, I'm doing this off of an OCZ SSD. So far, everything runs much faster than Vista, no doubt due in large part to the SSD. ...
