I hope someone can help, my brain is fried from this issue.
Have a PC with Asus P9X79 LE that keeps rebooting or resets after trying to do clean install of Win7/Win8.
The system will sometimes shut off or reset after attempting to install Windows
Things I have tried
1) Update Bios
2) Disconnect all devices (except 1 stick of ram, video card, HD)
3) Replaced Motherboard (both the old and the new have same symptoms)
4) Swap PSU, RAM, VIDEO CARD, HD (all new parts)
5) Swap Sata cable for HD
The system is set to default AHCI. The CPU was previously overclocked, but at default settings in BIOS now.
Ive tried DDR3 2133mhz and 1600mhz and in different slots.
The only thing I havent swapped is the CPU i7. I assume since it can get into BIOS it isnt a CPU issue.
A LIVE CD was used, it had no issue going into live CD. Issue starts when trying to boot off HD or install to HD.
Anyone have any idea!???
