As to the install from a HDD, Microsoft didn't issue a version that installed from HDD.
Try it one more time but be sure the HDD is on SATA port 0 and is BLANK, with no partitions prior to the install. If it fails the hardware is suspect.
So I have been at this for a few days and I'm having issues installing windows 7 on my computer.
My parts are:
Antec 900(USB3.0 front ports)
ASRock Z170 Pro4
G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2666
Intel Core i5-6600 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.3 GHz
I get a stop error 0x0000007F(0x0000000F,0x00000000,0x00000000,0x00000000) when trying to install windows 7 from my ODD.
I get a stop error 0x0000009C (0x0000000000000007,0xFFFFF8000C35DBAO,0x00000000BE000000,0x000000000100110A) when I try to intall windows from my External HDD.
I flashed my BIOS to version 2.80. I have tested my ram with mem test. and have made sure I seated my CPU properly. If you could please help me I would greatly appreciate it.
