Darn,
I believe you have my case too
Is it a Corsair 450D or it's big brother I believe the 750D ?

You do show a red light on the ram ?
Or is that the camera's flash ?

Yup. Same case. 450D and I must say, it's an awesome case. Very happy with it.

The red light is actually the cpu temp which is on the mobo. I just didn't focus very well, lol. Says 40 though.

If I try to install from USB, it says: Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the setup log files for more information.

When I try the steps from the link you sent originally, once I get to 'format fs=ntfs' it says 'there is no volume selected. Please select a volume and try again.'

I typed exactly what was shown in the steps.

According to you post #7 the install of Windows 7 and it's updates was completed. No need to try and install it again. You have another problem somewhere.

Not quite completed Jack,

The little ... That is animated isn't moving and I can't move the cursor. Going to leave it for a while and see what happens, I guess.


Completing, not yet completed.

I gave in and took it to the repair shop so they can figure it out. I'll update and close this thread once I know what the issue was. Thanks for all the help though.

Thank you Derek. I stand corrected. A second look, seems like not all the updates were completed.

I suppose 40c isn't bad for a air cpu cooler my other build shows 38c most of the time.

Please let us know that is pretty weird my install went way too easy

Ok, it's working now. Apparently it needed a bios update. The tech said he updated it, and it initially froze again but then was able to install windows 7 afterwards. Oh, and now that it has drivers installed, the court is fluctuating between 36 and 37 degrees. And that's while downloading so not quite idling. Much better.

Thank you both for all your help. I really appreciate it.
