Hi, I have a genuine copy of Windows 7 that I purchased for my new desktop that came without an OS. After I put the disc in, everything went smoothly until I got to the screen where it said "Setup will continue after you restart your computer."

After I restarted my desktop, I got the screen of my motherboard. I've also tried all the commands that it has on the screen, "DEL" for bios setup, f9 for recover, f12 for boot menu, etc. Nothing works. None of the commands work, restarting the computer does nothing, the CD does nothing. I'm just stuck at my motherboard menu.

This is what I'm running:
Case: Azza Hurrican 2000
Cooling: Asetek 570LX Liquid Cooling system
CPU: i7-980X
HDD: 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 64MB Cache 7200RPM
Memory: 6GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600MHz triple channel
Motherboard: GigaByte GA-X58A-UD3R Intel X58 Chipset
PSU: 1000W Cool Master Silent Pro Gold

Sounds like there's a hardware fault or the CMOS has become corrupted. Try resetting the CMOS and see if it helps.

BTW, are you overclocking? If so it might be an idea to reduce to stock speeds and then ramp it up gently. But first you'll have to reset the CMOS so that you can get into the BIOS.

franklyfresh You need to Reset Your system CMOS.
to Reset CMOS setting you should check your MotherBoard there is Jumper Setting to Reset Your CMOS.

Do this settings then you will able to enter in BIOS.
