Problem I'm having is the systems keeps rebooting during installation of Windows 7 x64. at first the system would sit at expanding windows 0% the reboot before getting to 1%. but it would not continue installation after rebooting. so i had to retry the install again. After a few attempts i noticed the system would reboot while i was still selecting options on my windows 7 disk (before getting to the installation process). I then disabled the ACPI in the bios and the installation completed in a flawless manner then rebooted as per normal install operation. once powered back up gave a software/hardware configuration error 0xc0000225. which after some research i found this was due to ACPI being disabled. So after enabling ACPI the system then continued to finish the install but rebooted during the process. when it powered back up i then got an error that said windows was shut down improperly and it gave me options for safemode/last known good.... etc
i tried every option and everytime i got an error that said the installation could not be completed and i have to reinstall windows.
I've tried 3 different hard drives,and 3 different DVD drives
I even tried to install windows XP from a good disk that i use often to repair my other systems- and got an error that a file could not be found/transfered.
Checked the CPU temperature- 35 degrees C
system seems to reboot itself when transferring or loading files.
I left the BIOS screen up for almost 2 hours and the system did not reboot
with both HDD configurations of IDE and AHCI-
Tried setting the ACPI to 3.0, 2.0, and 1.0
still got the same problem
cleared CMOS, reinstalled BIOS
checked memory voltage setting on mobo- set to 1.5v
I am trying another XP disk right now but open to any suggestions- running out of options
