New build troubles.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Recently decided to revamp my system for something "high end," however once I completed the build I have spent close to about 6 hours trying to figure out why there is a plethora of problems and google has brought me worthless results. Hopefully the OCN community can aid me more than answers.yahoo or toms' hardware.

Setup:
Asus maximus v gene
8gb Corsair Vengeance
i7 2600k
(2) 128gb corsair performance pros
1 240gb vertex 3
corsair ax750watt psu
Sapphire 6970
Logitech G500 + steel series v2

Issue 1: System consistently displayed "reboot system and select bootable device" despite being able to fully install windows and update it for 4 restarts. I sorta solved it by disabling all devices except the raided performance pros(raid mode, 32kb stripe size, correct intel sata 6 ports) and then installed windows again.

Issue 2: THE most annoying ever is that my mouse and keyboard CONSISTENTLY keep disconnecting and reconnecting. It's been a nightmare even trying to do google search.
What I've tried: installed proper logitech g500 drivers, tried different usb ports+3.0; tried ALL available usb ports, swapped out the g500 for another g500 and STILL no results. The issue also occurs during the installation wizard of windows.

Tried updating bios to latest but EZ flash continued to give "not an EFI bios" when I select the bios from asus' website.

I installed windows from a usb drive since my system does not have a dvd drive so I used my laptop to turn windows disc into an iso and converted to usb(failed) so i just downloaded the iso from digitalriver with service pack 1.

I've been up all day assemblying and trying to figure out what is wrong, hopefully somebody has an answer.

If you put your SSD's in RAID, you will loose all TRIM support.....so your SSD's speed will degrade seriously over time.

I have had similar weird bugs with my logitech keyboard. I reformatted and it fixed it,....but then as i installed other software it came back. So i reformatted again, and did not install any logitech drivers and the problem went away. I think my Zune software doesn't play nicely with my logitech software...but i am not going to risk another reformat to prove/disprove this theory.

Asus's website is terrible and very misleading. Chances are you have the wrong BIOS, or are using the wrong tool to upgrade it.

Once you get Windows installed, you can make your laptops CD /DVDdrive "shared" over the network. Then any computer can install from a CD/DVD in your laptop.

I don't really have a need for installing a dvd or need to share a dvd since majority of my content are on my server or downloadable content. I only needed a dvd to install. The problem of the mouse disconnecting occurs during the installation of windows so I suspected possible hard ware issues. I also understood the penalties of raid. Thanks though
