Windows 7: Problem with OS load

Just so I'm clear in my own mind, when you say "done install #6", you mean this to be the complete Windows install? Also, when is the "Loading operating system...." appearing? During the install? Did the PC reboot a couple of times during the Install? Did you ever get to a Desktop?

Did you do the Configuration Mode for the motherboard? This should have cleared CMOS and basically rendered the motherboard "new".

I just want to make sure you're following the steps to completion.

Yes carwiz all get to the Windows 7 screen then it's a matter of picking through the drivers from the Gigabyte disk for the ethernet as the stick method was a complete waste of time - I tried the drivers for Asia and the US.

However the Ati catalyst control centre is not functioning properly either and the screen is way out past the edge of the monitor surround which makes things even more difficult.

The only thing I haven't done is a dedicated BIOS reset with a jumper.

The dot problem starts after the main posts which go very quickly but I do see the boot order mentioned thew dots take about 30 seconds to plod across the screen - much like a Linux boot and then the flag starts to form. It doesn't even make it to completion and login is quick.

I have just had a blue screen with instructions on it so I am going to jump the BIOS as frankly the thing is just not been the same since I first put that SSD in and though the HDD's were a tad slow at least I didn't have this darn loading problem.

Any time you replace hardware with a different type or model of hardware, you should reconfigure your motherboard. CMOS memory stores certain hardware attributes and uses these on subsequent boots. Not clearing those attributes could cause Windows to misconfigure the hardware and drivers.

Well I think I have done the deed now and killed the mobo - reset to BIOS with the jumper and now the thing just keeps starting and stopping - no video output so I don't know what is going on so looks like a new board eh?

Never mind my own fault for trying to get a bit more speed out of it at least I have my old Desk1 and the tester to fall back on. I suppose the other bits will be ok in any case.

It sounds like you missed something in your BIOS video settings. The jumper is used ONCE then placed back in the Run position before continuing with the OS install. Killing the MB is easy to do if you didn't power down completely when changing the jumper. I tried to give you steps to follow, as did others, but your responses seem to indicate that you are picking and choosing the steps.

I don't feel easy about the procedure you're taking to set up the hardware and BIOS. Perhaps you should take the parts to a builder you trust and have him install the parts and the OS. In the long run, it may save you some money.

Ok carwiz the jumper only has two pins and doesn't reside in the machine.

I am trying very hard but it is difficult when suggestion come from all angles and as I said I am not that conversant with the BIOS settings and far from just randomly doing what I want I have tried each method as it comes through but never mind I'll work something out as my mate is agreeing that perhaps the board has gone bad. Plus I really want to be able to do this as I am about to retire and my motorcycling and woodworking days are over form an old shoulder injury, and as electronics have been a passion of mine (not at this level) since I was 8 this is something I can do without fear of wrecking that shoulder again.

The mobo is back after a stint with the battery and RAM video card and drives out so at least I can use the old HDD until I can use WHS 's tut on migrating the OS which I thought I could do and get away with that procedure.

Anyway I must sincerely apologise for taking up your and the others time and patience (I know it must be difficult for you all to do this long range) I do appreciate what you all have done for this old codger. Hope I haven't wrecked your weekend too much

All the best

John

From all this trouble I say why keep a PC that isn't even functioning. Does it still have any warranty time left? If so take it back! If not then just trade it in and buy a new one for a cheaper price why go to all this trouble?

Well I would Luke trouble is I built it and due to my own fault I tried to rush installing an SSD and well caused the chaos.

Like I said to carwiz thanks to all who tried to help me and I am sure I will find a way around it. When it wouldn't start (boot) I reckoned I completely wrecked it but it's going and I just have to retrace and get it right.

But I do thank you for your concern for a half wit old codger.

Oh and welcome to SF - enjoy!

We may be old, but we ain't stupid!!

There's a lot of satisfaction to be gained in learning new skills at any age and repairing an old computer comes under that category.

Besides, it gives us the chance to say to our other half: 'Don't bother me now. Can't you see I'm busy?'

Thanks for the kind words Andrew I used to have another half and while it's nice and quiet it's also better to have one around all the same. My ex nags from a distance - usually by email LOL!!
