Hey guys.

I've just recently finished building my new computer and everything works fine. However, when booting up it constantly restarts at the 'windows is starting up' screen..

I have just installed the ASrock Z77 Mobo and intel i5-3570k and corsair builder cx600 PSU.

Any ideas?

Is this a hardware upgrade from a previous install of Windows on the SSD/HDD or a fresh install of Windows (assuming you go that far)?

If a hardware upgrade, go into your BIOS and check your SATA mode. Set to IDE. Save and try again.

Please follow up.

Are you booting from a SSD or a HDD? If a HDD, there is no significant difference from a user perspective. See here for more:

If you are booting from a SSD (or using a SSD at all), you need to enable AHCI for TRIM to work properly.
