Thread Starter 
I added comparison chart yesterday. Does it help answer most questions about all the different board models?

Excellent idea. I like how you click on the charts and they expand.

For anyone with the double boot problem, make sure your hard drive isn't connected to marvels sata. Use the intel sata (any below top) And go into bios and disable it. Worked for me
post #317 of 1418
Ok so, this is my problem and I think I have it cornered here but would like a professionals help. I'm hoping some one here can maybe get me through this one or maybe get an Asus engineer to fix it for us. I'm having an issue with my chronos deluxe 240gb mushkin ssd that I just bought. To be more specific once I get to any random percent done under 50 on the expansion part of my Windows 7 install it fails and tells me that a file is missing or something along those lines.

I found this thread.

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/294064-30-p8z68-2600k-intel-install-windows-64bit

Which made me think this is my issue as well. My reasoning for that assumption is that I've done just about every single possible thing to get this ssd working at this point which is what this guy did apparently too before figuring out the issue was the bios...

Am I having this issue because I need to upgrade my raid rom or what ever these two things are listed in the beginning of the thread?

[How-to] Update Intel ME Firmware
[How-to] Update Intel RAID Option ROM

Or do I need to wait for Asus to fix this issue with a BIOS update??

I'm good at working with PCs so I won't have any problems upgrading the raid or me roms if need be.

Thank you for your help ahead of time. Awesome job with this thread as well.

I have the following setup sorry,

Antec 1200 Case
Strong little fans on the vrms and memory.
Corsair 850W HTX or what ever the best one is.
Asus P8Z68 Deluxe \ Gen 3
2600K / Water Cooled = Big Setup, Plenty cool.
Corsair 8GB DDR3 2000 2 X 4GB Kit
Asus ATI 6970
Creative Xtreme Gamer
Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240GB SSD
Barracuda 1TB Sata II
DVD Burner
Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit

Update:

I called Asus and opened a trouble ticket with them in regards to the issue.
The tech had me try using the AHCI drivers from there website before the install on to the ssd and it failed as well with a file doesn't exist error message some percent through the extraction part of the install.

I can access the ssd fine in windows using my old raid 0 setup that I kept intact, thank god... So the SSD is fine.

I really wish some one would tell me about the me and raid rom update things mentioned in the beginning of this thread and if that's my issue or not.

Thanks again for any help with this issue.

Seems to me you could have a faulty installation medium. DVD i guess? See if you can make a bootable USB stick with the installation on it. Plenty of info on the net if you google it.

Thank you for the response. I went out and bought a new Blue Ray / DVD burner and burned a new DVD from a new 64bit Ultimate ISO image with SP1 built in to it which I got from Microsofts website " I purchased it through them. ". Also I had just installed this setup recently on my raid 0 setup that I'm running right now, so the original DVD was good as well but I did it to be safe.

Good suggestion though. Anything else you can think of?

Update:

I'm thinking more and more that this is going to end up being a BIOS issue.

You should really rule out the medium first. Optical drives are not always good either no matter they might be new or old. You rule it out by going the USB method. Installation is much faster that way also. It's always a pain to believe something isn't working but wouldn't you pound yourself in the face if it is after all this tiny thingy?

It very easy to make one:
You need a USB stick (offcourse) of min 4Gb (also called thumbdrive)
The original medium

steps:

1. Open an elevated command prompt (right click command prompt and schoose run as administrator)
2. type "diskpart"
3. type "list disk" This gives you the list of disks with id. Locate the usb stick and make a mental note of the number. Usually the last.
4. select it. type "select disk 4" 4 is in my system but it should be replaced with the id you have in your mental note ;-)
5. Now we clean it (so make sure that if you have stuff on it you want to keep. Make a backup of it before doing this). type "clean"
6. Partition it in one primary partition. Type : "create partition primary"
7. Make it active so the system can boot of it. Type "active"
8. Now we format it in fat32. type "format fs=fat32 quick"
9. We exit diskpart. Type "exit"
10. Put the dvd in and change path in command prompt eg e: Type "e:" or whatever drive letter the dvd has.
11. Writing a bootsector to the stick. Type "cd boot" and then type "bootsect /nt60 f:" f: should be changed to the drive letter of the usb stick
12. Copying the installation. Type "cd \" and then type "xcopy *.* /e /h" Then wait a while till it's done. You should find your own stuff to do here. Maybe polishing the screens or whatever...

If it's done you can boot from it with the asus board by pressing F8 while posting.

Regards,
Mieske

PS a few extra step will give you an EFI bootable usb... Even cooler!! ;-)

PSS. I always cheat in diskpart.... You can use short names as long as they are unique. "Select disk 4" could be phrased as "sel dis 4". I guess i hate typing rolleyes.gif
