    Bios settings for Gygabyte 299 for windows 7


    I had my Win 7 working with my Gigabyte 299X. Now I can't even get into safe mode before it blue screens. What are the settings that I should have in my bios using windows 7?

    Just to test this I made a new clean installation Windows 7 on another computer then moved the drive over to this one and it is the exact same error. This makes me think there is a BIOS setting that got changed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also a side question to UFI or not UFI?

    Welcome to the forum. There isnt really an answer the bios has to match the windows so if you installed with uefi and then changed it to legacy or visversa so if you have moved a disk what are the setting on the pc you installed it on uefi,secure boot etc?

    Ok but modern Bios...


    I agree and thanks for the warm welcome. I have a good a Ron's backup of my setup so I can experiment .

    I have been building computers for over 20 years and the regular non miserable enabled bios I could navigate very well. This is my first graphical one and I onow there has to be certain settings to make wi. 7 work while enabling other ones is guaranteed to break my windows 7.

    So if I go non ufi what should my settings be?

    Each bios is different but legacy mode is most common often in the bios choose safe defaults will be good is the battery ok I would change it while your doing it if it low it could have lost settings that whats caused the problem

    stop 7b is usually a driver

    does it say 0x0000007B (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE) or something similar

    What are these files? How are they used? I am running Win7 64. The weird part is that I can take this drive out and put it in another computer and it boots up fine, finds the new hard ware and works. As soon as I put it back it BSOD again
    does it say 0x0000007B (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE) or something similar
    The funny part is that I can move this hard drive to a different pc and it works fine finds new hardware. Once I switch it back it goes back to BSOD

    I also created a blank WIn7 on the problem computer and that works fine as well

    I found out some more information. It looks like the 7b is generated when you switch bios settings form SATA or IDE to AHCI. My Gigabyte board only has AHCI or some intel based version. My issue is I cannot locate these exact keys. I am wondering if anyone has issues like this where it was a controller problem. Here are the details...

    Ok, I did some research on my issue and here is where I need some help. I found you switch over to AHCI ( I had to since this board does not have IDE or SATA option), it will generate a 7b fault. This is simular to WinXp when you moved it to another machine you had to delete the had disk controller and have windows find it again in the new computer. I found several procedures where you edit the registry \Services\PCiide and \masahci or lastorV values. I found the masahci but mine did not have the values listed. Does anyone know more about this? Is there another controller that could be doing this?

    I am not seeing the lastorV or masahci values in the registry. Could it be another type of controller?

    Nothing from anyone one this? I can't possibly be the only person that has a AHCI only bios and is trying to run win 7

    Never heard of masahci


    msahci start type 0

    pciide start type 0

    you might not have iaStorV it is a 3rd party driver from intel
