computer freezes with usb inserted before bootup

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Juat got the delivery of the computer yesterday and after assembling and making a bootable usb drive with 7 on it i setup the bios to boot from usb-hdd and it just hangs at the bios acreen. Everything on the inside of the computer is working like normal. Also tried disabling legacy usb option amd nothing used both x64 and x86 and both do the same thing. Tried all usb slots and no change. Have checked all over the net and cant find a solution. So any help is much appreciated.

Sounds like a problem with the USB Bootable Drive. Can't you just install Windows 7 normally?

I recommend torrenting the Windows 7 installation disks as long as you have a legitimate Windows 7 license you should be fine.

DVD drives are like $18, maybe it would be easier picking one of them up?

Buy CD drive. Install windows. Return CD drive.

DVD drives are $20.00 IMO I would rather just get one and prevent any other future problems, since 90% of the programs/games/hardware you buy come on a CD/DVD now anyways.

Perhaps your usb isn't receiving enough power. There are jumper pins on most motherboards that select the amount of power supplied to usb's...
