The problem begins when I try to do a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit. As soon as I put the disk into the drive the system restarts itself, and then gets into a loop of restarting itself every couple of seconds.
I tried removing hardware piece by piece and found that with the hard-drive disconnected I can boot from the disk fine. The drive is recognised in the BIOS so I don't think it is dead.
So far I've tried setting the SATA drives to IDE in the BIOS but the problem still persists.
Anyone had any trouble like this or know of a solution?
Thanks in advance.

With BIOS version 0606, both the OC Tuner in BIOS and the AI Charger app change the graphics boot configuration to PCI; if there is no device installed there, a boot failure occurs, which then begins the boot loop. Clearing CMOS and changing the boot device to the iGPU resolves.
This means automatic overclocking does not work with this BIOS version if a discrete card has not been installed, as far as I can tell.
