So I built for my friend a great computer that ended up dying rather instantaneously due to catostrophic ram and mobo failure! anyways I was able to get some “new” parts and have thrown together a build for him consisting of
CPU: I5 750
MOBO: ASUS P7P55 PRO
SSD: OCZ solid 3
psu: coolermaster 1000w
GPU: asus 7970
anyways when i booted this up the first time with the old SSD it worked fine, confirmed GTAV was running under load and went to actually install everything correctly and whatever. Anyways upon actually building the computer and then booting it up, i started getting “reboot and select proper boot device” thinking thats weird it was just working!
Anyways fastward forward almost a week later of trouble shooting and I cannot figure this out. For whatever reason this motherboard/usb ports will not recognize my bootable usb. I can see it in bios, but as soon as I select it to boot, its a nope. confirmed working in multiple other computers. on top of that I even installed windows 10 on the HDD through another computer on both SSD and HDD and when plugged in, they both report “reboot and select proper boot device” I did get one different error that said Invalid partition table, but thats been it.=(
So…my usb drives are recognized in bios but not windows installation. on top of that I tried to flash the bios firmware and the stick didnt show up in the asus ez flash 2 utility. I’ve tried tweeking all kinds of bios settings, set everything to AHCI and tried IDE I have not gotten a usb to boot nor a single windows installation…im a seasoned tech expert but this ones got me hella stumped, I just want my boy to be playing GTAV again! I have no dvd/drive or discs! (but shouldnt need them either!)
I’d be grateful for any input!
