    To be able to help you with the problem, first we need to know what is the code or message that aborts or prevents the installation to continue.

    Welcome back to PUreOC.

    Well I am going to take a guess at this. There are normally 2 things that will make an install fail on a modern system. USB 3.0 and the Sata settings. Since Windows 7 does not have native USB 3.0 drivers it will crash during install or when it makes it first boot after install. Never making it to the desktop. BSOD, restart BSOD. over and over.

    The other items that will cause similar problems is the Sata controller settings. Again Windows 7 does not have native RAID or AHCI drivers so it will crash, freeze or boot loop like I explained above.

    Solutions. Go into the bios and and turn off the USB 3.0 controller. Once you have Windows at the desktop. Install drivers, restart go in bios, enable USB 3.0 and boot to windows.

    Solution 2. Go into Bios and change Sata setting to "IDE or Compatibility Mode" RAID or AHCI will cause it to crash every single time. Once you are desktop install AHCI drivers and enable AHCI in bios.

    A SATA3 controller can also cause this issue. If this is the case then you will have to make sure your drive is on a SATA2 port and then disable the SATA3 controller.

    I am not sure how far you made it into the install process but if it was complete and BSODs during the boot attempt your in luck. Just turn off the things mentioned above and boot to windows. If it crashed during install you will need to disable then install windows, load drives for everything then enable the items above.

    ANd last but not least. This one always makes me laugh. If you are trying to install using an external source such as a DVD drive, Flash drive or Externall HDD with the Install files on it, DO NOT TRY TO USE The USB 3.0 ports. I have seen this so many times it is funny. It will boot to the install section then it will report it cant find the install files. Why? because it doesnt support USB 3.0!! Move to a USB 2.0 port.

    I am sure this will help you get your install completed.

    Your motherboard disk will have RAID or AHCI drivers on it that will transfer to a USB drive or burn to a CDrom drive. use this during installation and you can enable AHCI and that means faster performance.

    My way is so much easier lol They can enable AHCI. After Windows install and the drivers are installed. Everything can turn back on. Just an easy way without teaching someone to front load drivers.

    Many people have problems with system crashes turning the AHCI features on after install. I know that there is a registry hack to eliminate these problems, but having people alter the registry is a teaching experience in itself.

    As in it will not show up in Windows or will not show up in Bios? If ports are on and power is plugged up but still not showing in bios try a different port and cable. If still wont show in bios you have a dead drive. If it shows in bios but not in windows, the drive may need to be partitioned. Right clock my computer, manage, storage, locate drive based on size, right, partition, format, assign letter. It should show in windows.

    How to enable AHCI in Windows 7 after Instalation:


    There is one way to fix this, although you need to have knowledge of registry editing.
    The detailed steps (according to Microsoft) are as follows:


    1.Exit all Windows-based programs.

    2.Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

    3.If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.

    4.Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesM sahci

    5.In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.

    6.In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.

    7.On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.


    After this you’ll have to restart your computer, go to BIOS and enable AHCI.
    When you log in to Windows again, you’ll notice the installation of drivers for AHCI.
    Another restart will be required to finish the driver installation.


    These steps are provided at your own risk and not suggested unless you know and understand the risks (all data loss, reformat HDD, new fresh Windows installation...).
    You will want to make sure the controller driver and MB BIOS support this option before you enable it.

    Always look beyond the limits...
