Well I reformatted the hard drive (which worked fine with Vista), tried to intall the RTM version of Win 7. Disabled the audio. Same thing....STARTING WINDOWS....then flash to black screen...just sits there. I will google some more and see if anyone else is having issues as this. So there is other people here running Win 7 sucesfully with this board....scratch head once again....

GANDALF21502, at the moment we're just trying to find out what is preventing you from booting into the OS. The onboard audio may not even be an issue...it was merely just a troubleshooting suggestion. It could possibly be a driver conflict...

Give it a try and see what happens

Good luck

I did try, as stated above, try and disable the onbord audio in the CMOS before the last install...no go... Goes through the install, but after I see STARTING WINDOWS, just goes to a black screen and does nothing.

GANDALF21502, do you actually see the Windows 7 splash screen? I wonder if it has anything to do with your monitors refresh rate and the video card. I know with Windows XP you had the option to boot in "VGA Mode". This would run in 640x480 resolution. To get this option you would hit the "F7" key right after POST. This is typically the same thing if you were wanting to choose the Safe Mode option.

Let us know

Good luck

It comes up with the STARTING WINDOWS screen and that is as far as she goes. I can get to the Safe Mode selection menu, but when I try to go into Safe Mode, it does the same thing.

1) Remove all RAM
2) Put only 1 GB and try, if it work put the second...
3) If with 1 GB don't start, try to change with other piece of RAM

I was the same problem, and I've resolve it starting with only 1GB

I GOT IT WORKING!!! With some 'google research' I found many others having similar issues. It seems that with Win7 and multi-monitor support epsecially with Asus borards cause this issue with an install. I unhooked my 46 inch HDTV and it worked! Win 7 is now working.... I hooked back up the HDTV and both work after the install!

Now...I don't see any WIN 7 drivers on Asus site for this board. Should I leave the default drivers Win 7 installed or did anyone d/l new motherboard drivers. Only real problem is that I can NOT get the wi-fi to work on the board under WIn 7. I don't see any drivers for Win 7 for this board???

Gandolf glad you got it working. We would never have been able to diagnose that issue you had. I do not recall you mentioning or listing your TV in your sig or ever mention that you were using a monitor & a TV at the same time.

For future FYI, Any time you have issues like this it is useually best to strip the system down to bare minimum requirements to get it up and running. Then start to add features and enable bios options one by one after you get the system running stable enough to boot up every time.

For me this is what I would do.

Disable all unused options in the bios. i.e. 1394, gigabit nic's, usb's Unless needed for keyboard/mouse, sound, etc etc and only use one video card, one stick of ram and one monitor along w/only one Hard Drive. Some times stripping the system down to bare minimum essencials works wonders. Especially if you having a hardware/software related conflict/compatablility issue. After the OS is installed start to enable bios options one by one until they have all been enabled and the system is running good. Then add you additional hardware. i.e. 2nd-4th sticks of ram and any other hardware like sound cards videos cards etc etc.

Enjoy your New Win 7 experience. I know I didn't. LOL

Regarding your Wifi. Look into the device manager to see if the device has the drivers loaded properly and it says this device is working properly. I had a pita getting mine to work but it was all in the windows settings and not drivers.

Good Luck,

Ya I never thought about a 2nd monitor causing the issue. No I did no list that on my stats. I am looking forward to Win 7....

Device Manager shows the Wi-Fi, just not working properly. I will have to do some reaearch to figure out it's issue now....
