So my Asus Z170-A died on me and i decided to buy a Z170x-Gaming 7 board to replace it.

However I am having a hard time getting windows to install from a usb drive. I dont have a cd drive in my build.

When i go to bios it shows 2 boot options for the usb drive...

UEFI: Mass Storage Device, Partition 1 (Also seen as a USB Device partition 1, depending what usb i'm using)
Mass Storage Device

If i try to boot with the UEFI one, then all i get is the Gigabyte logo and it just freezes there...

If i try to bootfrom the normal one with Legacy boot, it will get to the windows logo but then freeze.

Anyone have experience with this issue and can tell me what might be wrong?

Well I've hit another issue now.

I'm now getting the 'Reboot and select proper boot device' error message. This happened when I enabled CSM. I'm going to pick up a wired keyboard and mouse to try to get back into bios as I'm currently using an airmouse without a proper Del key

Hi there,

Don't use a Mac for creating the USB drive. You need to do it on a Windows PC for it to work.

I have just bought the Gigabyte Brix i3 barebone and installed a 120GB M2.SSD and 4GB Ram. I'm currently creating a USB boot drive on a mac with unetbootin app.

So when I turn on the Brix without the boot usb drive it loads straight into UEFI Shell. I can enter the Bios by typing <exit> and can see my RAM and SSD correctly.

When I start the Brix with the Boot drive plugged in, it goes to the Gigabyte logo screen and then states 'Failed to initialise Library'.

This is as far as I'm getting and it's pretty frustrating. Hopefully someone can help me load the OS on.

Yep, when vcore is unstable, and CPU/VRM temperatures are fine, it's time to replace the mobo
Graphic cards / Finding why video editing performance is low (GTX 950 2 GB)

I have the system specification below. It was suggested that my hardware is the reason why certain video-editing applications perform functions too slowly to avoid dropping frames in real time etc. When I look at GPU-Z whilst creating a RAM preview in Hitfilm Express, I see that the graphics card assets appear to be underutilised. Am I right in thinking that there's no point in changing graphics card because this one is already able to handle everything my PC is giving it? In other words, should the GPU be at 100% for one of its parameters (i.e. memory used, GPU load, memory controller load, video engine load, bus interface load) before a person needs to upgrade? Someone told me that there are specific clusters of transistors/circuits which are dedicated to particular types of calculation - how can I tell if any one such circuit cluster is saturated and holding everything else back?

Mainboard: ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming, board revision 1.04, BIOS v1904
CPU: Intel i7 6700 (6th gen), Stock HSF, Undervolt Offset -0.15 V, LLC 4
RAM: Corsair LPX Vengeance 2x8GB DDR4-3000 (CMK16GX4M2B3000C15)
Graphics: Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 w/ 2 GB

Graphic cards / Aorus 1080 Ti Xtreme - Montage Issue
« Last post by Kherimon on July 22, 2017, 11:42:27 pm »

I've recently bought brand new GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition.
During unpacking, I've discovered that copper plate doesn't fit with the rest of the backplate.
Posting picture of issue.

My question is, can I loosen screws to mount it in correct place or I have to send it back for in warranty repair?

The protection circuit is part of the PSU so when powered off or switched over to another PSU it can always occur if the motherboard is causing the fault. From what you have described it does seem like your board is causing the fault and the idea of the PSU test is to determine where the problem may lie.

If not tripping due to a physical short, the other areas are anything startup related.

The CPU startup voltage, VRM is another point that can cause the board to power on / off instantly.
Also points to a failing board.

Faulty CPU temp senor...

If you want to start somewhere, go for replacing the board.

Had a Gigabyte Z77 D3H v1.1 (F22 bios) for a number of years and...

Just bought a SanDisk Ultra Flair 32 GB USB 3.0 stick.  Been testing it with crystaldiskmark and usb flash benchmark, with both giving similar results. That is, when I first plug the stick in, I get results about one third of those expected. If I then physically remove (software eject first) and insert it in the same socket, then re-run the benchmark, I get about the expected/rated speed. I don't know if its normal behaviour or if there's a problem, but obviously I don't want it defaulting at the lower speed if I need to use it for a bootable/install Win10 O.S (its main purpose).

(Running the benchmark twice without removing the stick gives the same slower result)

First time plugged in

Second time

Thinking it might be a motherboard bios setting or driver related.
