DX79SI Boot issues

Jump to solution

I'm building a new computer with these specs:

Intel® Core™ i7-3970X

The Intel® Desktop Board DX79SI

Intel® SSD 520 Series 240 GB SSD

Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7970 (WindForce)

Corsair Hydro Series Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H80i

Corsair Dominator 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 2133 MHz

Corsair Professional Series AX 850 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Gold (AX850)

Asus 24xDVD-RW Serial ATA Internal OEM Drive DRW-24B1ST (Black)

WD Green Desktop 1TB SATA 6.0 GB/s

Cooler Master HAF X - Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 Ports and Windowed Side Panel (RC-942-KKN1)

 

Windows 8 (USB)

Windows 7 SP1 (DVD)

 

 

I'm running into some issues booting up Windows 8/7 OS installation for a clean install. I have updated the BIOS to the latest update and the BIOS boots up just fine and I can go into the setup and change things around.

 

Whenever I let the BIOS continue past the splash screen I get a '0_' code in the bottom right hand corner of my screen and the LED display on the motherboard says '00'.

 

When I go into the boot menu by pressing F10 during the splash screen and try to boot from my usb device, I get a '0' in the bottom right corner of my screen then '00' on the motherboard. The screen also keeps displaying the boot menu with all of my options, but I cannot interact with it. The same thing happens when I try to boot from my DVD drive, except I get a repeated beeping noise.

Hello Kyle,

Please, place the board over a non-conducting surface. Just plug in the power supply, the video card, minimum amount of memory and the processor, clear the CMOS battery for 30 minutes and try to boot up. Also please let us know the exact part number for the memory you are using in order to confirm compatibility with your system.

Hello Kyle,

Here are our recommendations for this issue:

- Please, place the board over a non-conducting surface. Just plug in the power supply, the video card, minimum amount of memory, and the processor, and try to boot up. Start adding one component at the time until you find the conflicting one.

 

- Test the system without memory installed looking for beep codes.

 

- Swap components to narrow the issue if possible.
