Okay so I finally got windows 7 64bit up and running properly and noticed my computer was only recognizing 4gb instead of the 8gb I actually have. That is now the least of my worries. One of the first things I did was flash my motherboard to the newest version with success and ever since then Ive had nothing but problems and blue screens of death.
Motherboard: ASUS M4A87TD/USB 3.0 http://www.asus.com/Motherboard/M4A87TDUSB3/
Current version of BIOS:) Version 2001 Date:03/08/2011 ( American Megatrends Inc.
Version I would like to downgrade to: Version 0601 (Initial Release)
I did the flash upgrade via EZ Flash 2.0 from an 8gb USB stick with the updated BIOS in .Rom format and of course trying to do the opposite of using EZ Flash to the previous version brings up the "this is an older version of BIOS" and it simply will not allow me. Trying to revert to the old BIOS version via the mobo disc simply wont allow me to "downgrade" as it says.
