  1. 1) make sure you've updated your motherboard bios with the latest version
    2) load factory defaults in bios
    3) if you are still unable to install windows then disable ACHI mode for the chipset controller and try again.

    Okay but I do not have any knowledge to complete a task as: disable the ACHI mode for the chipset controller -P5BW-LA-00. I seriously need more help with it.

    Thank you.
  3. I've changed to Serial ATA AHCI Bios, an is still crashing during boot.
