I will enable the first in the list, the SATA RAID\ANCI i wil set it to ANCI

And i wil disable the ninth in the list,the Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode i will set it to IDE because there is not any disable option on that..

Ok i have done the above steps and i think we eliminate the first error message?

But now,What is that??? I get this message then windows start normally.

Well i thing i will.....

""I will enable the first in the list, the SATA RAID\ANCI i wil set it to ANCI""

""And i wil disable the ninth in the list,the Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode i will set it to IDE because there is not any disable option on that..""

And i will reinstall the windows!! I believe THE FIRST TIME i enable the wrong ANCI.

ANY ADVICE BEFORE I START THE REINSTALLATION?

That's exactly how it looks on my Gigabyte board. FYI, it's AHCI. I know the font Gigabyte uses isn't the easiest to read.

Perfectly normal.

The only thing I can think of ATM that may be worth mentioning ...

Some Motherboards, if AHCI is enabled, will not boot from a CD if there is a OS installed on the system.
Even if it is set to CD/DVD as first boot device.

If yours does this:

On a Gigabyte board, when the motherboard splash screen comes up, just press F12 (I think it is .. please confirm) for a Advanced Boot screen.

Select CD/DVD drive and it will then boot from the CD/DVD.

Not all boards require this, just thought it was worth mentioning in case you decide to re-install from scratch and the Win7 DVD will not boot.
You'll know how to proceed.
