I just bought a new Asus sabertooth 990 FX motherboard. Put an AMD FX-8350 processor and 32 GB memory on the motherboard. I am trying to load the OS ( Windows 7 Ultimate) on a 240 gb SSD. The OS has a SKU of GLC-00182 ( which is supposed to be either upgrade or new install).
I have tried installing new install. Went through install but didn't finish install.
Reboot said went into Windows error recovery. I got the feeling that something was missing. One of the install lines was updating the registry. I didn't have anything on a new drive, so I thought that may be it would be better to load Windows XP Pro on then upgrade to Windows 7. That did not work either,
I tried formating the drive to NTFS and installing no go. I tried formating the drive in GPT and still no go.
I got a blue screen error code 0X80070057. I looked that up and it tells me to go through regedit to fix the error. How can I do this when there is OS on this machine?
Is there something I have to change in the BIOS?
I have been working on computers for 10 years and have gone thru all I know and now I need help.
