Okay. So I've been having an issue with my new motherboard and I'm on Windows 8 64 bit. The rest of my build is in my rig. I updated the bios and chipset drivers. Even then it sometimes makes it where my mouse and keyboard aren't recognized which means I have to reset, sometimes I have to use the reset button multiple times until it works. I tried disabling fast boot and that seemed to fix the mouse and keyboard not being recognized issue.

But then I went into the bios, made sure the bios was set to stock options, then after I saved the bios Windows took a longer than expected time to boot. Then when i hit the space bar to pull up the sign in page it froze so I had to use the reset button.

Is it my motherboard or is it a bad Windows install?

I followed OS installation directions for a fresh install. Erase previous partition(s), install windows, download windows updates, GPU drivers, and install motherboard drivers. In that order.

EDIT: I should mention that after the very first time I exited out of the bios on this new motherboard, I had the issue where the keyboard and mouse would not recognize. The reset button fixed that and I didn't think it was a major issue back then.
