Check RAM, and NCQ of the HDD... I have a nvidia chipset and it had problems with HDDs that use NCQ.

Will check RAM. How do I check the NCQ of my drive?

Sorry your problem hasn't been cured yet. Just stopping back in to see what was suggested overnight. I cant access your specs while Im writing this so these may sound well dumb. SO there wasn't anything in BIOS, and you are going to check the ram. Your keyboard and mouse are wireless not bluetooth right?

Let me read thru the thread again

Edit for thought. Have you tried installing with the raid card out?

Mornin, Ken. Hope you got a well deserved good nights sleep.

Yeah, couldnt seem to find any settings concerning max memory or number of CPUs.

My keyboard and mouse are both wire bound, USB though. That shouldnt be causing any troubles, right?

I'm going to try with one of the memory units taken out as soon as I get the chance to.

Is there any chance by the way that installing build 7264 might work better than the 7100?

Is it just taking a long time to get through the setup screens? or will it not install at all? How long have you let it sit there? sorry if im being rude with the short question's I just had a theory thats all.

Just as it gets past the black screens with grey bars of "windows loading files" and then the splash screen. After that comes a blue-ish background and the cursor appears. Then nothing else. I can still move the mouse. I've let the computer be for the longest about maybe 3-4 hours, with it remaining the same; just the background and a movable mouse cursor.

And no, I don't find you rude or anything. Very greatful that you people are trying to help me solve my problem.

I have now tried to start the install with just 2 GB RAM without any result. Also tried starting the install with another hard drive (WD Velociraptor 150gb). No result yet.

What could it be?

It could be a problem with the storage driver for your HDD. Download the appropriate drivers from here GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver - GA-MA790X-DS4 (rev. 1.x) Note that you may need to expand the files and copy them onto a USB memory stick so that you can access them during installation.

It's not stopping. It's just incredibly slow. Get to the splash screen and go do something. The install windows screen will show up eventually. I have the same problem.

Ok well i had the same issue till just recently,On installs it use to take 5-10 mins for each of the very first setup screens to appear (i.e. to select language and what Drive.)I found that in my BIOS if i disable (Lagacy diskette A)in other words the A drive Floppy or whatever it is called on your system, I get through the first setup screens and into Expanding files within 30sec's - 1 1/2 mins. I personally dont use a Floppy drive anyway dont know about you, But you can Re enamble it after you complete the install.

This made my installs alot faster however everyones Rig is different so what works for some may not work for others however i gave the same advice to another member on here in PM he went straight into his BIOS disabled floppy drive and Bam he gets from the "windows is Loading" screens to "Expanding Files" in the matter of 1 minute, Same as me.
