Hello guys,

I really don't know what to do, i'm not an expert in computers and i just try to follow instructions but this windows 8 64-bit installation is driving me nuts.

This is the second time that im trying to install the software.

Everything goes fine until the screen before the wizard (where you should personalize , connect to internet and etc), it freezes right there (this is the 2nd time).

I have to reboot the computer a couple times to pass this part and when i'm trying to connect the internet freezes again and then i have to reboot again an try all over again... After i pass all stages and the computer finally starts.... freezes again....

I was able to open the internet explorer once and try to navigate for a little but it freezes again....
Is actually just a matter of time because i know it will freezes.

Also, none of the attempts works, such as: repair function, reset button, refresh, troubleshooting, BCDEDIT command on prompt DOS.... nothing helps me....

I don't know what's wrong and im about to be bald....

Computer is new, it was actually the first time that i build a computer which the specifications are:

Sabertooth x79 (BIOS UPDATED TO SUPPORT CPU, FROM ASUS WEBSITE)
I7 4930k 3.4g
16GB RAM - G. Skill sniper - 1866mhz
Rosewill 1000w power supply
VGA - Gigabyte Geforce GTX 760 - 2Gb
Liquid cooling corsair H60
WD 1T HDD - 64mb, 7200 rpm
Blueray asus
Windows 8 64-bit (DVD)
Cooler master tower , HAF series

If anyone have an idea of what i should do i really appreciate, but i cant lie , this is the first and last time that i try to build a computer... this is really stressful...

Tks...

if you had bios before 12xx did you run the bios converter twice to change the bios file from .rom to .cap and are you running the last bios file??
in the bios is the mb bios speed set to standard not performance??
in the ai tunner is xmp profile for dram speed turned on??
make sure your sata drives are on the intel sata ports not the asmedia ones. make sure the sata ports set to achi. try taking out the gpu and see if the mb with onboard video will install right. also try one dimm only to rule out a ram issue.

Hey smorizio, thank you for your reply.

My BIOS is the 4302 x64 version which was already .cap when i downloaded, i didn't have to convert.

I couldn't find where i check if the motherboard speed is set to standard not performance =/.

in AI TUNNER is set AUTO, should i change to xmp? I also noticed that RAM is showing 1333mhz when should be 1866mhz, should i change this manually?

SATA cable are connected to the right ports and is set to ACHI.

If i take my GPU out, how i will plug the monitor? There's no VGI connector ...
