    Win 10 Asus X99 Strix

    Hoping someone can help. I will be installing Win 10 64Bit to a NEW Asus X99 Strix. Is it ok just to change the boot order ONLY (That is F8) to CD/DVD rom and then change it back to SSD after installation? The last time I used an Asus Mobo I had so much trouble with this concept.

    Hi vando23,

    Actually, we have not tried this type of installation, as you will get exactly that if you have disabled "CSM Support" option in BIOS to allow pure UEFI boost, which works for your Windows 10.

    Any special reason why you install OS that way?

    I have just installed Win10 on a Strix99 but I used a USB stick. And had heaps of problems getting it to install in UEFI mode until someone in another forum helped me out. It involved creating a USB stick using a program called Rufus and then making a bootable USB stick with Win10 UEFI mode on it. http://www.windowscentral.com/how-cr...b-installation . And previously I updated to latest BIOS from within the BIOS ( first download the BIOS and put it on a USB stick ). Then in CSM support just made it an UEFI only and then installed Win10.

    Now what is truth and what is not I dont know but this worked for me......still have the slow boot whilst memory training in going on but this mat fix it .... https://forums.anandtech.com/threads...oards.2447240/.

    Hi will_s,

    Just for your reference, the changes suggested in the thread provided will essentially do the following:

    Attempt Fast Boot: Enable will prevent the Intel MRC code from calibrating with your DRAM during warm boot. Should be ok to leave it enabled.
    Attempt Fast Boot Cold: Enable will prevent the Intel MRC code from calibrating with your DRAM during cold boot. May cause problem if you change DRAM module after shutting down.
    DRAM Training: Disable will prevent the Intel MRC code from conducting memory test during POST stage. May cause problem if you have incompatible memory modules.

    As long as you don't change memory, you should be pretty safe.
