The build went fine. Installed Windows 7 Ultimate. When I first start the pc I get Windows could not start error. It then gives me the options of Launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normal.
If I select Startup repair, it repeats the same error. If i pick Start Windows Normal, I get an error stating: BOOTMGR is Missing - press CTRL ALT DEL to restart. After 2 or 3 restarts from this error I can pick Start Windows Normal and window boots fine. I have absolutely no trouble with the system once it boots.
Im at a loss, this is a first for me with this high end of a MB, CPU,Video and first SSD. I'm guessing there is a setting or something that I missed. Any suggestions on what to look for would be great.
No programs installed or websites were visited ... this is on a fresh load. I forgot to mention a second seagate 500gb drive on the standard sata ports in my specs. Im trying the system without it now.
I edited my post to the proper error wording ... bootmgr missing. From playig with it, it seems to have something to do with the second drive hooked up
Im booting to the SSD, the standard drive is just for data storage.
Ok.. If I disconnect the second hdd, the system boots fine. Hook it back, same problem. Tried different sata port, and different cable. same problem. Removed the hdd and installed a WD 640gb still does the same thing.
Ok .. asus tech support was total garbage. I am currently updting the bios, wiped the SSD. Did a fesh install once all the drivers are installed and updates done. I will post my results. Thank you all for your input on this.
