Apparently my question wasn't saved from main page. Sorry in advanced - I have to post from mobile.
Basically, I just updated to a Z97-A with an i7 4790. It seems to post fine.. I did a clean install of Windows, and it all seemed fine and dandy until I began installing drivers.
At that point, my screen went grey and I restarted.. And nothing. I had already tested the mobo... And the gfx card worked fine with my old x58.
I tried with minimal hardware. Reset CMOS. But it seems like I can get Windows to install, and then the screen goes black while installing drivers and then I can't get it to work again without reinstalling windows.
Truth is, I'm not evn e getting to the first driver install before it dies.
So, it suddenly started to boot to the BIOS screen. I can see my SSD there as well as the optical drive.. I tried swapping which port the SSD was on, because I noticed it wasn't seen in boot options (and now it is). When I hit save and exit.. It just jumps back to this now.
Also, BIOS version is shown as 0702. I remember that it said the version was of some point in April.. But I don't see any options on ASUS's site to actually download updated drivers?
Edit: swapped the port that my SSD was plugged into. It didn't seem to change anything.
