Ok, so I've tried everything to use my new Samsung XP941 as a bootable device for my Windows 7 OS but I don't seem to be getting anywhere, is there a way to fix this issue or do I just install it on a separate harddrive?

Have you updated your Ranger's BIOS? you will need to do so to ensure compatibility and probably download drivers for Win7 Install.

Hello kiwiboy22

Try disabling csm on the boot tab

Ok, got it sorted, just had to download Intel Raid drivers and format USB drive to a GBT format

This is where I found how to fix my issue.


An sure does mate,

Started playing Black Ops 2 but it's quite hard with a wireless keyboard with touch pad haha

Hmmm I've never tried using a touch pad but I can imagine it's tougher to be accurate. I don't use anything wireless for gaming as wireless can add latency. I use the razer anansi keyboard and the Logitech G500s mouse hard wired.
