still may want to try and disable any shadow and caching in the bios and see what that gets you
Told ya killian it IS disabled. I've never had them enabled for that matter.
Right now it's further than it's gotten yet as far as installation goes.
Damn newegg..I think they sent me an even worse board as my replacement when I RMA'd that other one.
It looks like an earlier version because the dimm slots are black instead of blue and purple and the capacitors have no labels, just silver capacitors =/
So I'm now thinking it's the RAM or RAM slots. Although the RAM didn't error in memtest it's all I can come to unless it is infact the floppy or CD-Burner or somethin
