I just finished building my new system using this motherboard
MB MSI|Z68A-GD65 (G3) Z68 LGA1155 R
Now i'm trying to install windows7 but it looks like i am having problems with my integrated graphics
I managed to boot on the install CD
It says "press any key to start the install CD"
then "Windows is loading files..."
When the loading bar is finished it says "Starting windows" and then my screen suddently lose all signal so i can't continue the installation
i'm currently connected through VGA. I also tryed to connect through DVI, i have the same problem except that the screen will constantly blink instead of just losing signal (during the "windows is loading files" part my screen will turn off and on constently, and when "starting windows" appears i will lose signal like with VGA)
I have a graphic card but i can't use it right now because my power supply is missing a 6-pin cable
I'm 100% sure that my Windows install CD is funtional, i installed windows7 many times including 1 time recently
Make sure that the SSD is connected to SATA_1. Irrelevant of whether it is a 6GBps Drive or not. Connect the ODD to the SATA_2 connector.
Reset the BIOS.
Boot into the BIOS after that.
Select the Boot order as ODD Primary and SSD Secondary.
See that it shows up there as connected.
Optimize other BIOS functions by enabling and disabling whatever is needed and not needed.
You'll be fine.
PS: You kingston RAM was just fine , it's XMP profile is firstname.lastname@example.orgV. The usual Mobos will downclock it to 1.5V@1333, no issues there, that can be changed later on, I'm using the same RAM @1600 after 2 years of having them.....
