new computer build, asus maximus extreme z mobo, gskill 1866 ripjaw x ram, xfx 6970 2gb gpu and 2600k i7 cpu
problem is, whenever i start my computer, windows starts to load, but thenit goes straight to startup recovery, any help as to how to get windows to load properly would be appriciated. still using same hard drive
The hard drive still has the drivers installed for your old motherboard, so the old Windows installation is not compatible with the new motherboard. a clean installation will correct that problem.
