#1 - Use a Windows PC to generate the USB Boot Drive - even if the app says you can use it on a mac

#2 - Use a wired keyboard and mouse (for install)

#3 - Don't enable CSM in BIOS (for me anyway)

Did Gigabyte Support send F7 Firmware to you via email?

Because the last update we have on the site is 2017/05/03 ?
Here is the full solution:

It was actually the liquid cooler which stopped working and then broke my CPU. I noticed it by installing a sempron 145 (gave me enough time to look at bios temps) and saw it climbing. Bought a new cooler and CPU chip and now the PC works fine.
Here is a quick update....

I had a friend format my SSD however somehow the Windows Boot Manager is still showing on it.

I also purchased an internal dvd drive and put a copy ofwindows 10 in the disk drive.

However that is still giving me the same results...

If i select 0P: ATAPI iHAS124 B it freezes on the windows logo
If i select UEFI: ATAPI iHAS124 B it freezes on the gigabyte logo
Ok so for people with the same or similar issues. I got a new mobo and the issue persisted (son of a bitch) but then I installed a $60 sempron chip I had laying around and it booted fine. So basically my cpu was s***ting the fan anytime it came under load causing the pc to sometimes boot past certain points and other times just s*** the fan. I don't have time to test the sempron on the other motherboard but I'm sure it would work and I'm too lazy to take the new motherboard out (I also like this one more).

Highly recommend the sabertooth r3.0 for the led displays while booting, seeing the cpu light light up and then immediate shutdown def narrowed it down.
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
