Hi - I have a very similar problem to ilikepaste (Computer will not install OS), however this has been resolved as a media issue. I also have a Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit ISO burned to DVD - this came from the Software4Students website last year and has been used on the previous build prior to upgrading to Sandy Bridge. I have downloaded and reburned the ISO to ensure it wasn't a dodgy quality copy.
System starts okay and I can install Windows. It goes through the installation process and restarts getting to the initial Windows 7 splash screen and the screen flickers and the monitor enter standby. Subsequent restarts gets the 'Windows wasn't shut down correctly' screen; selecting Safe Mode complains that Windows has not completed installation; selecting load normally ends with the splash screen freezing and the monitor going into standby. Fans remain on as with ilikepaste.
I have a couple of original Windows 7 Home Premium DVDs and neither the 32 or 64 bit versions load. Bizarrely, an original copy of Windows XP works fine as does Ubuntu 10.10 live distro.
Have tested RAM with MemTest and it's fine. CPU and SSD/SATA HD are showing correctly in BIOS.
Getting to the end of my tether with this! There is only a graphics card, the SSD (or the SATA drive - checked both to ensure it wasn't one or the other)and a Pioneer DVD drive attached.
Any suggestions would be really appreciated!
