This has not been a good 5 hours. Had a working copy of Windows 8 last night. This morning it says the installation failed so I need to reinstall. Reinstall failed saying the same thing. Was going to just put 7 back on. Gpu failed to post with the msi 790 fx board getting stuck on 2a Restarted a few times and now the cpu won't post and stuck on ff. Any thoughts? Specs: 965x4 Msi 790fx GDP70 Vision tek 7950 2gb 4gb amd black edition ram Wd black hd I'm at a complete loss of what to do. I've taken everything out, reseated the cpu, removed the cmos battery. Completely stumped and I have no access to a secondary board or cpu to check those.
