So, I'm setting up my system using your paid guide.
I also have an ASRock H67M mobo like in your guide. I have a single HD (2TB Samsung), and I do NOT have an optical drive. I followed directions elsewhere on formatting a USB thumb drive to boot from, with Win7 on it.
So, I had selected under the storage options, AHCI... and when I went to boot options all I saw was my samsung. So I tried to boot with the USB in, and it would not work. So I changed the storage options back to IDE, and it picked up with BOOT USB and I installed Win7.
So, have everything setup. I tried to change the storage back to AHCI, and that messed it all up, Windows will not boot.
What do you recommend?
EDIT: So I got back into the BIOS, and changed the storage configuration for the sata back to IDE mode. Now I boot fine, can you please tell me the difference and what I did wrong if possible. Thanks for your help!
