As suggested when you had DISKPART Clean All fail, this is when you needed to run diagnostics:

Both my Vista and Win 7 installed failed - Both OEM and both worked on other PCs

I contacted newegg customer service - They are awesome!!

I'm getting a refund and just ordered another Asus board. I'll post up early next week with details.

Thanks again all!

FYI -

I did call Asus Tech support - Non of you folks are Shawn are you? I explained the symptoms and shared the troubleshooting we preformed with your guidance.

Shawn says sounds like a Sata controller issue. He also said that if it would have been memory related we would have seen a very different error - Just FYI for those that might encounter this later. I will edit my first post with additional details once we are up and running. That prevents someone having to read the entire thread.

Happy New Year....

Here's the latest....

I called Asus and spoke with Tech support on the 23rd. After sharing the extensive trouble shooting we did, the tech said to RMA the board as it wsa a failure with the SATA controller. I spoke with Newegg had a REFUND RMA provided and ordered a replacement Asus MB for time sake, keep in mind this was a Christmas gift for my sister.

Yesterday, with 3 day shipping I receive the new MB, I pull the old one, put it in the new box and ship it back to Newegg / RMA....keep in mind the RMA UPS label was only good for 7 days and Thrusday was the 7th day.

So here we are new board all hooked up, bios updated and settings in place, load Win 7 and no drives are detected. I tweak IDE - AHCI, Marvell Esata dis/enable.

At this point I'm frustated. So I pull the 500GB Seagate HD and put it into my desktop and install windows 7 on it without issue. I pull that 500GB hd and put it back into the troubled PC and now I can't boot to it.....

You can prepare the HD which had Win7 installed in another machine to boot on the problem build using Paragon Adaptive Restore CD, or image it using Acronis 10+ with Universal Restore if you have that.

Paragon Adaptive Restore - Overview

Were you ever able to wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean All command? This is an essential troubleshooting step after updating BIOS or resettting the CMOS, setting SATA controller to AHCI, or IDE if necessary.

If Diskpart fails then the HD needs to be diagnosed using maker's full diag/repair CD scan: http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html followed by Disk Check from the DVD/Repair CD Command Line.

Greg - No offense but I'm not a real big fan of script and kernel hacks on a new system with recent hardware. Thanks but I'm not going that route.

As for wipes with Diskpart CLEANALL yes it happened. It happened on both HD drives and partitions happened on both.
