Well I posted on the forum earlier today asking for help on my build. Well here I am now with a running computer, but I can't seem to get windows 7 64-bit to install. My computer will boot showing the gigabyte loading screen (my mb is a gigabyte 970A-UD3) I read that some people advised others with this problem to flash their bios, but I really don't know how to do any of that...if you need anymore details on my build, just let me know! Thanks!
How long have you let it wait while it was "Stuck" to see if it will move to the next step? There are a couple points in the windows 7 install that can take a little while to gather resources on some computers.
Did you reformat the drive entirely before making a clean install?
You MUST do that before installing 64 bit. 32 bit will not upgrade to 64 bit.
Are you SURE that you have a 64 bit motherboard and processor?
64 bit will NOT install on a 32 bit machine.
Look up the motherboard and processor specifications. VERIFY, do NOT assume.
Alright thanks, I'll be sure to try with just one stick of ram. I really don't have anything extra besides maybe my optical drive, but thanks for the help! I'll be sure to post results when I have them.
