sounds like bios is not recognizing the drive. check power and sata connections then hop into bios and see if it is detecting the cd/dvd drive and set boot order.

good luck

Is the install having trouble seeing your CD Drive, or the Hard Drive you want to install to?

Your motherboard should have come with a driver CD. Pop that in and look for any folders/drivers that mention SATA, Storage, HDD, etc. See if installing any of those fixes your installation issue.

If it's just the CD Drive, and Windows Install can see your hard drive fine, you can try to install from a USB Thumb Drive. It's usually a little faster anyway. Google the "Windows USB Install Tool".

It does notice the CD since the boot order is recognized but when i pop in the motherboard CD it gives me trouble by saying the drive is outdated or something like that

RE: OS question
Based on a quick search of your problem/quote line, it sounds like it's likely a bad driver issue, either for the DVD drive or USB ports, or something like that. Since it sounds like you have a CD/DVD install disc, you might try copying the appropriate one of these .iso files to a USB flash drive, and install off the flash drive instead. Then you can try going back in and fixing the drivers...

I'll note that these are referenced in a number of places, including the Microsoft Support forums, but I can't vouch for them. I believe these were stored on the Digital River site, when they sold the product. Just use your own product key and they should work fine. BTW, you probably want the 64-bit, so make sure you use the x64 link if you go with this...
The files are HUGE, too, so you'll need at least a 4GB drive to get them on, and a lot of time to download.

One last question: my PC says the "display adapter type" is that my GPU is a radeon 7770, the only problem is I'm supposed to be running a msi radeon 7790 could it be possible that NewEgg sent me the wrong GPU since the box claims to be a 7790

OS question
Are you using Window's built in drivers or those from AMD? It is new enough that Windows may be misinterpreting it.
