I went to bed after a few hours of putting it together. I work up and went on it the following day. I booted it up and everything seemed normal. I got past the motherboard spash art and got stuck on the windows repair recovery screen. It said the normal, it wasn;t shut down properly and yada yada. So I highlighted the repair option only to find out that it goes from the "Windows is loading" at the bottom, to a big fat blue screen. I restarted it after that and chose the start windows normally this time. Instead of starting normal, it just restarted and brought me back to the same page. At this point windows 7 was already on my SSD.

I figured i'd try to boot it up with the windows disc, so i popped the disc in, and booted up my pc with the disc. Same thing happened. "Windows is loading" at the bottom, "Starting windows" with a few dots of color from the flag, and then the bluescreen.

I'm not sure what the problem is here. I think it could be the motherboard because I tried the SSD on another computer and windows 7 booted up fine.

Since there is no problem with your ssd, rams might be the most likely to cause this issue try booting with one ram card first installed at 2nd slot. Also try resetting your bios settings.

Hi, Is it the same if you start the board with only one RAM stick installed?
