odin2free use this Asus utility with your windows 7 cd or iso to make a usb flash drive with usb 3.0 drivers so your keyboard and mouse will function

Got the ranger back, shop concluded the same thing as me, but all they did is update bios and send it back to me. It came back configured xmp 2400, had random freezes all over again. Memtest at their place was fine, memtest at my place was fine, but still crashes. Went back to auto, as soon as I put it on xmp I get error 55 again.

But.. running @ 2133 for now and it's stable, don't have time to fiddle around with my build yet, in two weeks time I will. Gonna throw away this freaking crucial ballistix sports and buy some proper ram instead biggrin.gif .

You're probably using USB keyboard and mouse. There are no USB drivers available during the install. What to do in that case is explained in the manual for the board in the section "Installing an Operating System". If your board has a PS/2 port then use a PS/2 keyboard to skip this hassle.

I would try increasing one or all of the following (in the yellow region) before throwing away;

DRAM Voltage
CPU VCCIO Voltage
CPU System Agent Voltage

As a quick test you can increase all of them to one step below where the value turns purple.

The uefi has keyboard and mouse simulation for legacy installs. This is enabled by default.

Yeah, same as Raja told, gonna try increasing sa/io voltage smile.gif . Wasn't getting very bad performance at 2133 though but more is always better. Thanks for your tips smile.gif .

Don't know what type of install he's doing. I was able to do both UEFI and legacy Windows 7 installs using a PS/2 keyboard without having to install USB drivers.

I mean that he should not have to install USB drivers to have keyboard and mouse working for win 7 install.

So what's the bit in the manual about using DVD drive and a modified Win7 ISO all about? The Installing an operating system section of the manual begins with;

"Based on the chipset specification, the 100 series requires USB 3.0 drivers to be preloaded in order to use USB keyboard/mouse during Windows 7 installation."

No idea. All I know is it's in the bios and keyboard and mouse worked fine for me with no USB drivers installed when I installed win 7 to upgrade.
