Windows 7 Boot Failure with SSD and ASRock Mobo
For some reason, after doing a clean install of Win7 on a 128 GB Samsung SSD I cannot get it to get past POST with my Mobo. The ASRock logo appears, but then the screen goes black and just sits there. If I go to the boot menu of the mobo and then "save changes and exit" everything works fine and I booot right up in a matter of seconds.... Any thoughts?
How are the boot settings configured in the BIOS? Check in the BIOS settings and make sure the SSD is the first boot device. If the board isn't remembering the correct boot settings, you can re-set the BIOS by removing the battery and unplugging the power for 30 seconds or update the BIOS to the latest version.
