Hey guys. I built my new PC last night (i7-2700k, 16GB RAM etc.), and i have tried installing windows 7 via the optical drive.
I successfully installed it, set up username and password, and it went to the desktop. Everything seemed to be ok, mouse was working fine. Then, after 10-20 seconds, it suddenly said "Logging off" and "Shutting down". The PC shut down, and restarted.
The BIOS flashes up very briefly, then "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD..." very quickly, then the monitor loses its input and goes blank. Whilst this is happening, the fans in the PC are going slow then suddenly fast for a second, and the various POST red LED's around the motherboard turn on and off in turn. It appears that the one for the boot device stays on the longest, but i'm not sure.
your description was very good, and I watched the entire video too. everything looks like it is working okay until the computer suddenly shuts down and starts restarting. I know you mentioned you are using a SSD. I'm curious, do you have a regular HD to install windows on and try it and see if it works okay?
No sorry, i don't have a separate HDD.. BUT, i tried the SSD with windows installed in my laptop and it works fine..
Intel Core i7 2700k
Asus P8Z77-V PRO motherboard
Corsair H60 CPU cooler
16GB Corsair Vengeance RAM
NZXT Phantom 410 case
Corsair ZX 850W (80+ Gold Certified) PSU
Crucial M4 128GB SSD
Try to boot into safe mode -> Asks me if i want to boot from the SSD, optical drive or enter setup. If i boot from the optical drive, then i can enter the various safe modes etc. If i boot from the SSD, the same thing as before happens so i can't boot at all.
No i shuts down no matter what i do, it's on a 20s time delay or something like that.
No i don't think so..
Ummmm.. no it's torrented, sorry.. but it's a disk i made for a mate and it worked perfectly fine on his new system (pretty similar to mine).
I'm using wireless, so i'll try turning it off.
yeah i was considering getting the bigger phantom but this was £40 cheaper
