r u trying to install Windows 7 from USB instead of DVD?? If so u can use Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool (google it) and make a boot USB. When u need to install W7, go into bios and boot from USB.

Actually I would use this method provided by Sean Webster. The Windows 7 USB tool formats your USB thumb drive with NTFS which can be extremely slow when transferring files.

The method I linked above is much faster and won't require you to install anything. And I set the BIOS/UEFI so that the HDD/SSD is first to boot and then the USB thumb drive. That way it won't go back to the installation screen. wink.gif You can manually boot whichever drive you want too from there.

I setup my USB stick exactly the way that is show in Sean Websters guide but when it tries to boot up all I get is a black screen and the cursor blinking in the corner frown.gif Do I need to have the USB stick plugged into a specific port at all for it to boot from?

Make sure you're not launching it via UEFI boot (it'll say something about it next to the drive).

Got it working, turns out in my previous attempts to get it working I'd changed something in the BIOS to make the USB pretend it was a CD-ROM. Changed it back to Auto and it started working. I'm an idiot smile.gif

Thanks for all the help peeps smile.gif

Is it worth the difference? P8P67 PRO is Ivy compatible too...
