That is a thought too...Sven do you have a PCI-E GFX in your laptop? If so is there an option in the BIOS that lets you go to PCI-E GFX first and not onboard...

If the bcdedit command didn't work you try this as well.

Well, here is where things stand at the moment.
Still has only seen the green squares on bootscren.
I have tried bcdedit %WinDir% /l en-US
I have tried bcdboot %WinDir% /l en-US
In BIOS I have tried these settinges:
Init Display First [PCI] [PEG] [PEG2] (all 3 settings tried)
Full Screen Logoshow [Enabled] [Disabled]
HPET Support [Enabled] [Disabled] - when enabled, I can select [32 bit mode] and [64 bit mode] I have absolutely no idea of what HPET is.

None of the above helps. Tried to boot from a Western Digital HD, and from my Intel SSD X25-M, tried an old Nvidia graphic card. No luck alt all.

In the folder "Boot" on C:\ there seems to be folders for a lot of languages, but only 2 files in each. Was there not sopposed to be 3 files in the folder that is used for boot? (f.i. C:\boot\en-US\*.*)


Answer to Burgurne. Yes, on my laptop the glowing Orb is showing up from very first boot during installation, but my desktop PC is as silly as yours. We have the same mobo, so it might be the issue?
Anybody else with a Gigabyte DS4 P35 mobo, that can comment that?
