680i to 780i swap problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This is on my sig rig. I recently purchased a 780i mobo to swap in, my 680i was starting to go down hill.

Well i installed the mobo, and set the cpu/memory settings conservatively so that i could go back and do a thorough overclock.

The onboard raid controller recognized my raid from the previous mobo right away and said it was healthy.

Problem is the computer blue screens when loading windows. It does it shortly after the windows icon dots start to show up on the screen. The blue screen is just a flash, so fast i cant see the numbers hardly, but there are some.

Any ideas on how to do this? I would really like to no reformat, and i dont think i should have to. the mobo clearly sees my raid.

I did a memory test and the ram passed, i also tired booting with just one dimm. I also tried windows startup repair, but that was a joke, although it did load it fine. ALso safe mode will not boot either, it just goes through several lines of code before doing the same as the regular boot.

Thanks for the help in advanced.

My guess is that the drivers for the 680i chipset are causing problems with the 780i chipset. It might actually be that the RAID uses different drivers, and Windows is unable to use the older drivers on the new controller. Your best bet (and don't shoot the messenger ) is to set up everything with the 680i mobo, uninstall all nVidia drivers, and then try to boot up on the 780i mobo.

Again, this is my opinion, and it might not work. But it's an idea.

Not necessarily, since the OS still needs the RAID drivers to load itself from disk.
