    Installing windows to M2 problem

    Hello hello,
    I am trying to install windows 7 64 Bit to a XP941.
    I get to load the windows set up screen and choose the Mc (Disc0 Partition 1)
    When I chose it and hit next it tells me
    "setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate and existing system partition. See the set up log files for more info"

    Im not sure what to do.
    I havent done anything except update the bios to 0802 (board came with 0603)
    I did go in and change the PCIE x8_4 to M2

    um, im unsure, what do you mean?
    when the "select boot device" window pops up I get 4 choices
    1- is the m2 SSDF
    2- is the Corsair Voyager 3.0 usb stick (which when I click on loads windows installation screen)
    3-UEFI Corsair Voyager 3.0 (when I click this it sends me back into the bios screen)(to the extreme tweaker tab every time)
    4- enter setup

    As soon as the ASUS logo pops up during post, spam the F8 key. You will then be presented with a window to choose your boot device. Select your installation media that has the UEFI prefix.

    Maybe you didn't prepare your Windows 7 USB installer properly for a UEFI install.

    You need to use GPT. If by some chance the XP941 is using MBR, you'd need to convert the partition to GPT.

    well, i have to give up tonight. Im getting tired. Im doing something wrong. Everything seems ok with my machine, I just cant seem to get the iso thing on a usb stick right.
    I formatted the USB stick to NTFS. Is that correct?

    Your USB drive must also contain the directory and file: "*:\efi\boot\bootx64.efi" (* is the drive letter of your USB key that holds the Windows 7 installation files). This is the ".efi" installation boot loader extension. If you do not have this directory file on your USB drive this is how you create it:

    First, create a new directory called boot inside the "efi" folder on the USB. You will then need to copy all of the files from the "*:\efi\microsoft\boot" directory into the directory you just created ("*:\efi\boot"). Next, use 7-Zip to open the archive located at: "*:\sources\install.wim."

    Inside the archive, find the file located in folder "1\Windows\boot\efi\bootmgfw.efi." Copy this file to "*:\EFI\Boot\" location you created earlier. (Not in the 7-zip) (This file is also available from any current windows 7 installation. It is located in the "C:\Windows\Boot\EFI" folder.)


    After copying the file to the "*:\efi\boot" directory, rename the file in "*:\EFI\Boot\bootmgfw.efi" to "bootx64.efi". You should now have an EFI boot loader folder for Windows called *:\efi\boot\" with all of the files copied from the "*:\efi\microsoft\boot" folder and the newly named "bootx64.efi."
    Your install media (DVD/USB) must be inserted into your PC prior to powering it up. This will allow your UEFI to register your device (DVD/USB drive) as a UEFI boot enabled device.
