I've just purchased the parts to build a new PC and myself and a friend are having problems with a install of Windows 7. All the components have been installed with all the due care and attention needed. When my friend has plugged in the USB stick with the Windows 7 ISO on the machine displays the installation starting page and then the screen fades and nothing else appears.
We've tried this multiple times with the same build and then changing the memory using one module at a time, unplugging the graphics card and trying the install without this but with no success.
Any help would be appreciated as we're both stumped! I've listed my PC components below.
Fractal Design Core 1000 Black Micro-ATX Case
AMD (Trinity) A6-5400K Black Edition Dual-Core Socket FM2 Unlocked Accelerated Processor
Gigabyte F2A75M-D3H AMD FM2 A75 DDR3 mAT
8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 XMS3 1600Mhz DIMM CL9 1.65V
OCZ Agility 3 60GB 2.5" SATA-III Solid State Hard Drive
430W Corsair Builder Series 430CX 80PLUS Bronze Power Supply
ARIANET Radeon HD 6670 2048MB GDDR3 PCI-Express Graphics Card
Why are you installing from a USB as opposed to a DVD? I know in one of my builds I had a lot of bother with trying to install from a USB drive that nowadays I no long try installing Windows 7 via USB.
We think that the motherboard is broken or corrupted in some way. The display goes from full to nothing in a few seconds after the installation begins and doesn't come back. I have suggested trying a DVD but probably wouldnt work as the display would still disappear.
I have contact the supplier to hopefully arrange a return.
