I just built a new system:
i5-3470, asrock z77 extreme4, 8gb ram, OCZ VTX4 SSD.
When WIndows 7 (64bit) been installed and booted for the first time, after 10-15 seconds it shutted down. After that I was not able to boot windows at all. When I turn on computer it keep showing ASROCK logo on keep resetting itself. the indicator shows codes like 99, A2, A5.
I have another computer which also has SSD as a system drive, plugged it in the new system - SAME THING, system keeps reseting right after ASROCK LOGO.
I also have an HDD from another computer, plugged it in new system - WORKS FINE!
Now, I checked for solution online and tried a lot of things:
- updating the BIOS
- changing BIOS settings (switch around ide raid ahci and then install windows)
- clearing CMOS
- tried install ubuntu
- tried switching the memory
The last thing is I tried to install ASROCK driver during windows 7 installation process and was not able to install any of them. I tried drivers from CD and drivers from internet. No luck.
SO it doesnt seem that motherboard is bad because it works with HDD. Also it lets me install windows 7 on SSD. But as soon as windows is installed, it wont boot.
If anybody had same problem or has any ideas please let me know. Thank you.
