Hi all, I have now built my PC and it all went without a hitch. I installed my copy of Win7 Home Premium and then installed the BIOS from the CD-ROM which came with the GA-MA770T motherboard. It installed apparently OK and the PC is working fine but the install didn't follow the stages as shown in the User Manual. I put the CD in the drive expecting a Gigabyte options screen to appear with the install options showing but instead just got the Win7 installer box which I okayed and the install went ahead and after a couple of reboots I was back at the Win7 screen. Everything apparently works fine but I read in one of the Win7 users help pages I had found here and other sites via Google that as I understand it in Win 7 when installing programs I should right click and choose "Install as Admin" from the drop down menu instead of using the left click option as I did.

My question then is, should I be worried that Windows Installer has installed the programs on the CD as I would have done or has it used Windows drivers etc instead of the Gigabyte drivers etc etc. Would it be a problem if I uninstalled the BIOS and reinstalled again but using the Admin option this time, or am I worrying needlessly?.

Thanks for the reply pinaklonkar, but do you mean no worries as in leave it as it is?, or no worries as in reinstall the BIOS?

Unless there is a problem of any sort, I would not update the BIOS or reinstall or whatever.
