Ok, after pulling everything out 1 by 1 - the dvd drive was nakered, so i have since replaced.
However i now have a new problem. When loading the setup for windows 7 it doesnt recognize any hardrives even tho 1 ssd nd 2x 2tb hd are connected.
It allows me to find the drivers through either cd, usb or floopy. However i cannot seem to find any sata drivers for windows 7 - i have downloaded from Gigabytes website the drivers associated however the scan reveals nothing on the disc... very confused,
