Intell DX79SR - Possible to do a Windows 7 x64 install?

Firstly, I can't even get my board to boot from USB no matter what I do.... Think I found the solution to that problem... Something about a Install Compu stick or something. (Which I don't have)

Also, I was reading online (this forum) that there is no way to install windows 7 x64? It will run it, but you can't install it.

Is it possible? And if so, how? Thanks

Windows 7 is perfect for your board.

Just use the Windows 7 install DVD. What? You do not have one?

Take a deep breath, relax, have your 25 digit key ready, and follow the instructions.
