Hey everyone!

Well I recently bought an ASUS-M3A78. Everything has been connected. It powers on, beeps and lights work,

The only problem I am having is that when I load a OS (Windows 7) it loads, but then shows the old loading of Vista like it did not properly load. So at that same moment I eject the W7 disk and quickly it shows the display screen of the W7. I put the cd back in it begins to load, then gets stuck loading. I eject and put in again, starts loading and stops.

Eventually it becomes confused and just stops loading permanetly. I have 2 DVD drives in it and have tried just a single by itself and it is the same results. I also have properly put the pins in master/slave dvd drives correctly and it still is the same.

I dont know if anyone has experienced this before but I am stuck and it sucks! Lol.

Thank you for any help or tips!

There is only one thing on this motheroard I have changed. It does have a long bed of pins to switch from basic monitor output to hdmi output. I dont really think that has anything to do with it though.

Thanks again.

Hugh

why didnt you just let it sit and let it go? ejecting it could have caused issues. I would recomend doing the clean install, make sure you boot up off the CD and whatever image starts loading, let it finish loading, and go from there.

not a problem. Might even recomend waiting a few months for service pack one to come out and try it again. Ive used windows 7 with several customer computers and been fairly well impressed as far as windows goes, but theres still bugs and driver support is lacking, should be better when they release the new service pack. Just remember to let it finish loading. :D
