    when i try to install windows
    I get error:
    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage
    to your computer.

    If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen,
    restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
    these steps:

    Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed
    hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive
    to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.
    Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then
    restart your computer.

    Technical information:

    *** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)

    I have been searching all the forums regarding this matter and in the end windows would only setup if i took out the gx2 and replaced it with an old
    pci express ati x300 i had
    so i set up windows and put the inf drivers on mobo
    then tried putting geforce gx2 back in system then dvd rom drive dissapears
    i have 3 theorys

    I suggest...

    I've always had issues trying to install Windows on DVD burners or CD/RW burners. This is why I like to keep a plain old CD-ROM drive handy. If you can start your Windows installation with a CD-ROM drive, give that a try. Errors I used to get included files that would not install, or Windows chokes with blue screens.

    That said, you are also mixing memory sticks. Take that mess out and go with one type of memory at a time. I have a hard time believing that the high-power videocard is causing issues, especially if you can see any image at all. However, anything is possible, so using another "lesser" videocard is probably a good idea until you get a full install. :call:

    Error appears the PC is not seeing the HARD DRIVE. You need to check settings, jumpers, etc and when Windows asks to install otehr drivers, HAVE the RAID DRIVER FLOPPY DRIVERS available. THATS your problem!!!
