Use windows 7 usb tool.
Microsoft Store Online
Take your flash drive and a quick or full format, choose to use Fat32 with allocation size 4096.
For one reason or another most windows 7 os prefer that and are able to pick up your usb drive at post and use it.
Check your motherboard at bios and setup your boot order like this
2. secondary master
4.optional removable disk or usb drive if present
Make note of it and make sure your drive appears in bios, try not to have any other usb devices besides a keyboard/mouse attached to the computer.
It will make things best on the installation and preventing windows to look for drivers for recently new hardware and causing issues.
Now, it has come to my attention that the problem is with Boot Device Led.
Here is a cut n paste of specs of the problem I created for my record. Apologies if it is lengthy.
My computer is brand new - but does not allow booting from dvd or
Bios updated fine- can enter bios without problems.
"Device Boot Led" is on permanently.
I have tried:
(1) One Ram only
(2) Different Harddisks (also one at a time)
(3) Change of cables
(4) Rolling back to an earlier version of compatible (with ivy
(5) updated again to latest version
(6) Checked all powersupply cables
(7) Utilised minimum default settings most of the time
(8) Used only bare system with cpu/hdd/ram
BUT problem persists. Have contacted Asus and they will reply in
only the fastest of after 48 hours. I believe they will suggest
RMA (upon viewing most similar problems)
What I cannot understand is ASUS may have such poor Quality
Control (assuming it is MB in problem)
CPU: i7 3770K
MB: Z77 Sabertooth
RAM: 8 GB (4 GB x 2) Corsair XMP 9-9-9-24 (1.5v) per asus
GPU: None atm but will get gtx560ti frozer
PSU: Coolermaster 850w (80 plus)
HDD: (2x) 1TB WD Green/Blue Cavaier
OS: Cannot install Windows 7 64
Case: CoolerMaster Storm Trooper
Cooling: Corsair H100
Am open to all possible suggestions to having this new rig begin
