I just built my first build and the BIOS is running fine and everything but once I try to install windows 7 from a USB external hard drive lines appear on the screen and freezes. What happens is the start up logo gets cut off and it goes to the next screen but with different color lines on it. This is when I'm plugged into my mobo. When I'm plugged into my GPU it gets through the start up logo but then doesn't bring up the setup box. I tried both options repeatedly but no success. Any advice on either problem would help.

sounds like either a mobo issue or a cpu issue, do you still have coverage?

How do I figure out which it could be? My assumption is the CPU cause I this is my second mobo and the problem persists.

yeah get your cpu replaced, the probability for the mobo to be dead twice is extremely slim so just get that sent back
