I'm pretty sure. It was driving me crazy for about a week, then I bit the bullet and bought a new DVD drive (my old one died).

To OP: I would also suggest the USB route. That is if your motherboard supports it. Just boot into BIOS and go to your boot menu and see if there is USB anywhere on it.

Both is op lol
Yeah its there.

Soooo....just setting USB as primary boot will work?

Also can anyone contemplate on why my windows is hanging on "starting windows" but in the background there are windows sounds and keyboard macros work?

Fair enough. thumb.gif

MOST rigs are capable of it though. You must've had some really weird AM2 boards then, lol. It should have been supported. Although computers are often so incredibly finicky, I wouldn't doubt it to be honest.

Is your GPU functioning properly? Sounds like your GPU isn't actually outputting anything once the drivers kick in.
