I have built my own computer and I have a ASUS P9X79 Pro motherboard, an Asus GT440 graphics card and a Corsair 120gb SSD. I'm trying to get win 7 to install on this brand new SSD. No other drives connected. The BIOS which has been flashed and is up to date finds both the DVD drive and the SSD. I've set boot priority to the DVD drive and I keep getting this MSG below. My SSD is brand new and this would be new install........
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
To fix the problem insert windows disc, reboot etc etc
Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data.
I really don't know what to do next. Please please help me someone I'm beginning to lose hope.
Thanks for your suggestion. I found out what the problem was. I was using an IDE to SATA adaptor on the DVD drive. The motherboard didn't like it at all. Solution.....I bought a SATA DVD drive.. I now have an amazingly quick system.
