time by the way.
You can use the Windodws 7 DVD or the Paragon LiveCD.

Hi again theog,The problem is the OS instalation only made it to the first restart before i got the windows boot manager
telling me that the ntos kernel was iether missing or corrupt. So i have not even been able to activate the OS
with the product key so my first question is how do i use windows 7 dvd to uninstal and also the HD is now taking priority in the boot order so this sounds like advance CMOS to change the boot priority but iam unsure how you do this. I have looked in the advance CMOS and select HD it shows as 1st device then i checked out DVD and it shows this as first device, its showing both the HD and the DVD as 1st boot device but this is where i am unsure do i just go into HD and dissable save and exit in order to get the OS Disc to run from the DVD or is it about changing the priority which i am also unsure about. any sugestions on how to do this would help. thanks for your patience.

It's not clear from your motherboard's manual, but you should be able to choose which type of device (HD, optical, etc.) is the boot drive, as well as the specific drive of a particular type (if you have multiple HDs or optical drives).

Be sure to go into the BIOS settings and change the boot device to the HD when the PC reboots during the Windows installation. I believe thatyou don't want subsequent boots to be from the DVD.

I'll try again: Are you booting the Win7 installer?

Not running it from the underlying OS, but actually booting it from the DVD?

Why can you not answer this simple question?

Hi to all, Sory been off-line for a while, got a pal to look over the build, he took one of the
2 gig ram modules out reducing the rig to 2 gig and the OS went on fine, however, there
were problems when i tried installing my software including Kasperski 2012 IS with the rig
back to 4 gig so out came the ram module again, this time i took the other module out.
( my thinking here was to check if there was any difference between the modules ) and
my software went on fine. After reading everything i could i have come to the conclusion
that my CPU having a front side bus of 800MHz does not like the OCZ DDR3 PC10666
Ram's FSB which is 1333, the MoBo Northbridge supports 1333/1066MHz FSB so does this
mean i need Ram with 1066 or 800 Fsb i have no desire to overclock the CPU this rig is
For my Graphics and Photo Studio's not a Gamers Rig and i would like to use both 240 pin
Dimm slots preferably with 2 gig in each?

There should be no issue with DDR3-1333 RAM, although it may be run at a lower frequency.

For example, Crucial:

Computer memory upgrades for Elite Group (ECS) G41T-M7 Motherboard from Crucial.com

sells DDR3-1333 kit that they guarantee to be compatible with your motherboard.

If you can set the memory timings and voltage in your BIOS setip to match OCZ's specification, you may get reliable operation.

Hi bobkn, With my Intel Pentium Dual core E5700 Cpu having a Front side bus of 800 Mhz this
is my lowest comon denominator so which memory would be best 8500/1066 or 10660/1333 DDR3the crucial memory modules @ 8500/1066 have a lower cas Latency are these beter for my purposes and my other question is:
If i were to enter bios and reset the memory timings and voltage as you sugest would this not overclock
the CPU which i was trying not to do. My goal is not a Gamer rig but i may still add a graphics card more for the
HDMI Video capability and beter display for my graphic design and Photo Editing?

I wan't suggesting overclocking, but just making sure that the RAM is set to the voltage and timings that its manufacturer recommends. (It ought to be, automatically, but you should check.)

I don't do a lot of photo editing, but I think that the higher speed RAM would be faster for that, even if it has higher latency. (Latency is less important if you're moving around large blocks of data.) That assumes that your motherboard will run the higher frequency RAM at its specified frequency. (It may not. I'm running Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1866. The SPD setting for it is DDR3-1333, so getting 1866 requires either setting my BIOS to use XMP instead, or setting the frequency manually. I choose the latter.)

New Build Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Thank you, bobkn for the advice i think i will order the ram from crucial as you
suggested and take it from there sory about the confusion on overclocking but
this was my first ever build and i still have plenty to learn. Your patience is
appreciated. Oh and my appologies to gregrocker who i hope reads this, i was offline when he posted the question asking if i was booting from the underlying OS or from disk the answer was disk however the point is now moot as the OS is now up and running. And yes gregocker i can answer a simple question if i am aware
that it has been asked. I am a newbie to the forums as well as the build and i am
sory if i have irritated anybody.
