mmm, don't fancy touching the BIOS yet, I'll try borrowing a video card first, then report back. Pretty sure the RAM is ok though.

Cheers for yor help so far!

If you download the latest BIOS update and unzip it, there will be a ReadMe file which should tell the specific fixes which are included, so you know if you need it. Run from Windows there is almost no risk except with a Power failure, which solution is flashing the BIOS from CD.

Always test the hardware thoroughly as nothing can be assumed.

Well I found an old ATI card and managed to do a fresh install (though getting lots of dodgy graphics glitches, it's not designed to do 1920 x 1200 I guess..?) but got as far as a desktop, so, quite pleased.

Next step is preinstall the 9800gtx and then plug it in, and hope it works without any glitches!

There is a solution that would solve our driver difficulties for a clean install.
You can slip (add) the drivers for your card to the windows installation files. So it will be available for the setup to use.

You then have to create a new installaton DVD for install from a flash drive.

Intriguing! Is there a tutorial for this somewhere?

vLite - Windows Vista configuration tool

Install version 1.16 then install version 1.2 over it to avoid having to download WAIK.

Load extracted Win7 files into front link.

Choose Slipstream Drivers and Create ISO.

Unzip drivers and browse from driver page to pick up the correct files.

Create ISO, then burn DVD at 4x from same drop-down menu, or write to stick.

OK. Burning an new ISO with the newer drivers (197.13) slipstreamed in, about to start the install (doing a fill HDD wipe as mentioned earlier).

If that fails.... I'll probably borrow a graphics card from a friend and install with that, then put mine back in.


EDIT: Did not work. I'll borrow a friends graphics card tomorrow.
