Ok, so I finally built my first gaming PC, and when I tried to install Windows, it would hang on the loading screen. I found out that switching the hdds to IDE mode on the mobo (an ASUS p8z68 PRO GEN/3) seemed to fix the problem. My question is, will going to IDE mode slow down my PC? I have an SSD hooked up to the SATA 6/GBs and I want to know if I lost any speed over it. Thanks.
*sigh* I really need help on this one guys. Its an ASUS P8Z68-V PRO GEN/3. I am using the SATA III ports for the SSD containing Windows. If anyone knows how to do the install after the OS is installed, please help me. Thanks.
