No that's not what he did. My HDD has 2 partitions, C and E (One more D but that is recovery). I told him to choose C and he did it. But he installed it before he installed the 3 things. So I guess he's gonna have to reinstall.

Yeah if you have two partitions on the same HDD sometimes motherboards have boot loops. My current computer at work has two partitions and I basically have to threaten it to start correctly. Best bet is to back up all the files you would like to keep to some kind of external storage. Then format your hard drive. Then put it in the new build and install the OS to a "new" hard drive.

I don't understand. C was already formatted but not E. It looks like boot loops only happened to the mobo. But are you saying Im gonna get the boot loops again?
I can't get a new HDD
Im just gonna try to install it with the new mobo......I guess idk
Also the boot loop I was getting is that the computer would turn on for 3 seconds with nothing showing on my monitor
and then it would restart again and it might just stay on or reboot again and stay on but nothing on my screen.

When I say "new" I meant a clean hdd. Like I say, it just makes things a lot less painful. Buy a spindle of dvd's or an external HDD to back up all your photos and music and the like. Once you have done that you can install win7 on your new build to a completely empty hard drive by deleting the partitions and reformatting it through the windows installer.

Can't do that, too late. I think I'll install the 3 things and then just reinstall and format C again. But as long as it boots up.....what is bio update??
post #977 of 7108

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)
and i5-2500K
I had
ASUS ENGTX560 TI DCII/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
and
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

However, when I installed the 3 things I got reboot loops and no signal on my monitor
the guy who installed it for me installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit first
and then he installed the 3 things

now I RMAed the mobo and bought
ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Which I am not sure it will work or not
but a few reviews for the RAM I found out that people had incompatibility issues with the board similar to the p8p67-m and no problems with maximus iv boards
So yea Im going on vacation in on wednesday so I can't RMA this new board now
Just really wanna know if it'll work or not, got me worried

Someone told me my case only fits micro atx boards
I have cg5270-bp003 with the new gpu and psu and default everything else
I am using Ripjaws on my Gene with no issue. I had a similar issue like you where the board would do a funky reboot. When I went to the Gene the problem went away. It's probably just a bios issue that needs to be addressed on the regular Asus line. Anyway, I think you will be fine. What you can do is setup the board on your MB box using the Intel cooler and just see if you have any issues before installing it into the case. May save you some time and frustration. Also, if you think the ram is an issue, either run memtest or the Windows memory test on them to see if you get any errors.

You do not have to update the BIOS before you install the OS.
When you install a new motherboard, you are not using the same computer you were before. A new motherboard means a brand new computer. It is likely that you won't boot properly if you are using the hard drive from another computer with the OS from the old computer already installed.

What bios is on it now? 208? If so you should be fine. If you want to update the bios this is how to do it:

1 - On a different computer download the file from Asus.
2 - Unzip it to a USB flash drive.
3 - Take the USB flash drive and put it in the USB port of the GENE.
4 - Boot the Gene and go into the bios.
5 - Under the "tools" tab select the bios flash utility.
6 - When it prompts you select the new bios from the flash drive and update the bios.
7 - Reboot the Gene, go into the bios and load the defaults. Then reboot the Gene and go back into the bios and set it up the way you need it, i.e. set the RAID, boot drive, etc. Save and reboot.
