Right now I don't want to reinstall my OS but sometime in the future I may need to. Right now when I try to open the boot menu on my extreme3 gen3 mobo (that you guys helped me OC on) it won't open at all. This would be the menu that allows you to choose to boot from USB if you wanted to do a clean install. The menu won't even show up, only the splash screen comes right on. This is with an OS (win 7) in usb drive.

The OS I'm using right now came from a torrent I DLed from a trusted torrent site. I'm a little concerned that maybe my current OS somehow is blocking me from a reinstall of new one? I haven't encountered any other problems on this OS install. Would flashing my bios fix this? Any ideas what could be going on?

Have you tried sfc /scannow in an elevated command prompt? That might fix your current build. If you still want to reinstall, go into your BIOS and change the boot priority.

I was reading a guide on how to do sfc /scannow and it said that sometimes you need your windows OS cd. They said you definitely would need it for win XP but they didn't say whether you'd need it for win 7. My current install is Win 7 Ultimate off a thumb drive (was a torrent). Is there a way to do the sfc /scannow off this thumb drive?

edit: I tried doing a system restore but the problem with the cursor disappearing reappeared anyway.

edit: About changing the boot priority. One time a while ago I had to reinstall my OS and I tried doing it with the boot priority first and it didn't work. I made the usb drive be the first thing it goes to and it just skipped it altogether and still booted from the HDD.

edit: I could also do a system restore. I have a restore point 4 days ago. Think this would be better?

I have done the sfc /scannow multiple times, to fix a PC or just when I think something is up. You could even do it when ur PC is perfectly fine and it may find something. It's a very handy command and I have never had it ask for a DVD to proceed with it. I do my Windows 7 installs via a flashdrive though, its rediculously faster than CD/DVD

I was just watching some vids on youtube on how to do the sfc /scannow and the vid said you need a dvd with your OS on it. My current win 7 ultimate install was installed from a flash drive and I got it as a torrent. I still have the installer on a USB drive. Is there some way to do the sfc /scannow with the usb drive?

(note: I also have an old Win 7 premium disc but thats not my current install.)

Never in all the times of Windows 7 installs that I have done for people did it require the disk in some way, shape or form. I've done sfc /scannow with the OS installed from a flash drive and from disk, both of which did it np. I think what the person meant to say, is that sfc /scannow will run without the disk. However, some problems that sfc /scannow can and will fix, requires the OS disk (plugging in your flashdrive is basically the same thing because it gets a drive letter). But still, all the problems it found for my PC and others, though it may not be many, still it never required the 'disk'

Checking back in after awhile, still going strong and still pushing higher..

PLENTY of room for higher oc's, great temps with the 4 year old h50!
Will definately get better results when I upgrade the cooler!

That's not stable, is it?
