  1. If the hard drive is SATA, make sure AHCI is enabled in the BIOS.
  2. Its on AHCI. When i get to the end of reboot installation something goes wrong. and blue screen pops up. My Ipower has some storage saved. About 20gb. And maybe i think it has trouble with that. Maybe i should format the hole drive and re-install?
  3. That 20GB is probably a recovery partition. You probably don't want to format that.

    What is the error message on the BSOD?

    Try it with each stick of RAM, 1 at a time.
  4. i think its the ram that gives the problem. Sometimes it says 7gb other times 9.. I think one of them has failure. I have to bring to the shop then. Since i have my warinty on it. Because it is not the software ore OS.

    Thanks for the help.
  5. No problem. Since you have an i7 triple channel setup, it should always say 9GB.
