Hey TPU,

In short, got a new SSD for my main rig. Trying to boot from my bootable usb to install on that drive, whenever i have a bootable usb in connected to the motherboard it hangs on the last part of the device checking i.e 'PCI Express 9'.

I tried to boot up from my laptop (asus g53), which is what im using right now. This usb just worked yesterday when i installed on an old alienware i was selling. The motherboard im trying to use on my main rig is an older eVGA socket 775 mobo. Im not sure how to get this installed, when i can't boot from cd or usb. Ive tried other USB ports, ive tried remaking the usb bootable. It works in every other computer except this one. Anyone help?
