Hi all.
I'm having some issues after switching my motherboard.
I know I have to reinstall my os,the problem is that it won't install via my usb flash drive.When I'm trying to boot from the usb,the screen flashes occasionally with only" _ " displaying on the screen.I know the usb works properly, as I have updated my os with it recently.Also,the flash shows up in the bios and is working fine on
other computers.I have tried doing a system repair a few times but, as soon as it is done, the computer restarts again.I should mention that this is not a brand new motherboard,I have used it before and didn't have problems with it.

I assume you have switched USB port? Sometimes rarely it can be the port, if not try another USB.

Thanks for the reply, I tried switching usb ports,but had no luck. Also tried a different usb, but that didn't work either. Eventually I booted via a dvd, after installing the dvd writer. Everything works well now, after hours of struggling and changing a few settings in the BIOS.
