Make sure you only have one stick of RAM in and unplug all unnecessary periphs.

How many times can I clear my CMOS? Is it bad that I have to keep doing it to try different options?

I wonder if I should unplug my SSD and let it try and boot off my Windows CD/HDDs?

I was going to bring this up before I got to this last page.

Where are you at right now? Still having problems?

Yeah, currently I still cannot even fresh install Windows. If I try and boot into Windows it gives me a BSOD about checking for viruses and checking my hard drives. I can't get into Safemode either.

I have always known it as F8, but maybe try F10? Its one of the F keys (besides the ones your BIOS lists for Setup, Boot Menu, etc)

EDIT - Also, what model Corsair SSD do you have? I know Corsair/OCZ and others use the SandForce controllers, which cause problems.

The thing is... when I hit F1 it kinda freezes for a second and then goes directly into the Windows logo (Even though I'm hitting F8 in that time its frozen). So I'm thinking Safe Mode might not be an option right now.

You can reset as much as you want, it shouldn't damage anything (no more than power-cycling already does, which is not a problem).

My suggestion would be to remove all but your CPU (duh), one stick of RAM, and your OS drive. Get BIOS settings proper (RAM voltage, which is probably the most common thing that BIOS doesn't always properly set), shut down, then connect all the rest of your components.

I wouldn't bother setting an overclock before you get that done.

I think a clean install of Windows is in order. lol.

That is going to be the easiest, but longer way of getting it resolved.

Ok here's what's going on

I put my other HDD back in that was originally in so now I have two HDDs and the Primary SSD.

This time for some reason it gave me the option to install windows on my SSD

So I did it... then it said "theres a previous version of windows if you continue that version will be listed as 'windows old'

So now it's installing Windows right now

I'm just hoping I can get through this installation without the BSOD problem
