I'm currently about to do a clean install of install Windows 7 64-bit home premium and I was wondering if anybody had the best way to go about it I know that there are some already out there but it seems like there is a lot of going back and forth.

Here's what my specs are currently

PSU: 80 Pluse 700W OCZ Mod X Stream-Pro
Mobo: A8N32-SLI DELUXE
CPU: Athlon 64 X2 4800+
Hard Drive: Seagate barracuda 7200 sata 2 not in raid function but am planning on it
Memory: 4GB OCZ 3200 Platinum timing 2-3-2-5, cas latency 2
GPU: GTX-560 not in SLI

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Most important questions are a) do you have an existing OS with data you want to keep, or is this a clean installation, and b) which version and what type of installation media are you using?

I plan on doing a clean install of windows 7 64 home premium OEM if that makes a difference.

What's with the binary code?

If it's a clean install, just pop the disk in the drive and follow the steps, nothing to it. Make sure your optical drive is set as the first boot device so that it boots from the installation disc first.

I have the same board and cpu and want to do this also but it doesn't appear there are drivers from Asus to go to Windows 7. Is there another source for drivers or can I use there drivers for another operating system?

Little late for Dave_5280, but to anyone else who has this board . . .

Just use the drivers for Vista on the ASUS site (64bit or 32bit, depending on your version of Win 7). They will work fine. You will notice two exclamation marks in device manager . . . they are the onboard game port and midi port. Just disable them in the BIOS, and the marks will vanish. I guess Windows 7 (64bit, anyway) doesn't support these ports.
