I have purchased new hardware and build a new pc. however I have a major issue I would like help with please. Basically whenever I boot up or reboot the machine it doesn't boot into windows first time. it either takes me to the bios or blue screens. once I reboot it then boots fine. as its new hardware I don't know if there is some fancy setting I need to enable / disable. 


I have an ASUS Maximus VII ranger motherboard and an OCZ SSD.


any help would be appreciated please.

First of all - make sure that the boot priorities in BIOS are set properly. Your first boot device should be the SSD (assuming it has the OS on it) . Also - try a different keyboard if you can. It's possible that a key gets stuck. If the problem still persists - check again all the connections, including RAM sticks, and try updating all the drivers, most importantly bios and chipset. 
You can take a look at this topic, there are detailed troubleshooting steps on a "boot to blue screen" problem:
Hope this was helpful, Citizen_WD

takes me to the bios or blue screens.

That shouldn't be happening.

Did you run testers on your memory, hard drive and power supply after installing?
