window 7 installation extremely slow!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I recently swap my motherboard to Asus rampage iii gene and I also bought a western digital raptor 10000rpm Hard drive. I also upgraded my memory to ddr3 2000mhz.
I tried to install window, but it soooo SLOW and it froze right before completion. Everything is default setting right now.
I wonder if this is something to do with my new RAM? I never experienced this before.

Hard drive perhaps? I know its a long shot guess but you never know. Also something i usually recommend is installing windows 7 via usb, using the usb/dvd tool you can get online. Takes at least 15 min off the installation for me. Oh that reminds me, what about dvd drive?

If you boot into Windows installation and click repair my computer, you can run some diagnostics.
It has memory diagnostics and cmd line so you can check HDD using chkdsk etc

thanks guys for advice.
I unplug other x2 hard drives and somehow I was able to install window.
It was still very slow, but it was successful.

Check MB is set for AHCI in BIOS, now you have OS install, get the drivers and flash MB BIOS with latest release.
See if you get any improvements.

Install Windows with just 1 stick of RAM. That should help.

When I have my overclock and install windows both my sig rigs are slow. I think it has to do with the PCIE frequency of over 100 (ie 101) and some of the voltages. If I install my windows 7 and put my sig rigs on stock everything works way faster.
