Bad mobo? Tags: Motherboards Windows Vista Hard Drives DVD Drives Last response: May 27, 2008 4:22 AM in Motherboards Share huggybear78 May 27, 2008 12:21:45 AM Just wondering if my mobo is bad. i have a ASROCK AliveNF6P-VSTA mobo So when i try to install windows vista it takes 15 minutes to boot up to select which language screen and another 15 minutes to select your partitions screen. and im using a samsung dvd drive sataII and seagate barracuda 80gb hdd sataII to install vista. so to see if my sata drives are at fault i replaced them with my working ide hdd and dvd drive and it still does the same thing. and after i install vista i get lots of lock ups and bsods.
