I have recently upgraded my pc and now i have a problem with installing windows. I have an asus sabertooth 990fx motherboard, bulldozer fx8120, seagate sata 2, 7200rpm 500gb hard disk. The hard disk is recognized by the mobo, but each time i try installing windows from a dvd on it, the pc freezes during the first stage of the installation which is the expanding windows files. I have already set the hard disk to gpt.
I just bought this hard disk few hours ago. It does work as I used my friend's ssd drive to run windows and change it to gpt using windows disk management tool. I have 8 GB of ram. Im trying to install 64bit version of windows. The weird thing is that i am able to install ubuntu and it works just fine without any problems.
I tried ide mode and it did not work. I also tried deleting partitions it did not work either... It is very weird as I can run linux without any problems. When i try to install windows it freezes or shuts down during the first stage which is the windows file expansion.
