I just finished building my new computer. Everything is all connected. I click on the power button all seems fine. Enter into bios again all seems fine. Its when i start to install windows its freezes. I get tot eh screen where it says....
To continue with the installation hit enter.
To repair an existing installation hit R.
To exit without installing hit F3.
Tried a few times and all with the same result freezes at this screen. In the bios it does recognize my hard drive and cd/dvd rom. Can anyone offer up some sorta of suggestion of what is going on?
First, try upping the voltage in the BIOS to 2.0v or 2.1. I had the same issue with my computer since my motherboard defaulted to 1.8v and my memory needed more juice. It's perfectly within the memory manufacturer's specs, so overvolting from 1.8v to 2.0 won't bother the ram. Otherwise you can also try underclocking your ram. I've heard that the 1066mhz ram is just overclocked 800mhz ram.
