Asus Maximus IV extreme W10 install issue

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I purchased some gear from here, looking to build a custom wood case to go with my TV stand. I am having some issues installing windows 10.

So I have this Motherboard: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131760
Processor is a i7 2600k
Ram is : Corsair 16GB kit 2 x 8GB.
HDD: tried 3 separate drives. 1st was a SSD Samsung EVO 850 500GB, 2nd was WD 250GB, 3rd was a Brand new 2TB WD Blue Drive
Graphics for now is a GTX 980 will switch to something a little less power hungry later.

System loads up and gets to place to actually install windows on the disc. the place where you choose what disc to use. Then I get this error code

Windows cannot be installed to this disk. the computer hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enables in the computers BIOS Menu.

Never seen anything like this. Any help as to what I am doing wrong, would be greatly appreciated .

I've had that issue in the past with a badly setup USB - what media are you installing windows 10 from?

Are your drives formatted as MBR or GPT?

For a first step I would try to create a windows setup usb using Rufus and see if that works.

Also, I guess worth asking if you have made any changes to the BIOS/UEFI , and are you sata drives in AHCI mode?

I am using the USB to setup windows 10, Drives not sure tried to format them and they locked me out. Same for the brand new drive. Just hooked it up to this new system and cannot install. Bios is all default, so the HDD should be in AHCI Mode. Hooked one of the drives up to a different machine today, after I disconnected all the other HDD and windows installed correctly. Not sure whats up so drives are good. will get back about the AHCI made though. Thanks in advance for the response.
