Ok, Idk if my SanDisk Extreme is dying or what but it froze up on me consistently for 3 straight startups. I was then able to restore it back to order with an old image, even though a couple read errors occurred during the reimage but it still ran Win7 again fine.
Prior to the reimage I figured I'd just try Win8 out and it refused to install on my drive...but after my reimage of Win7 and THEN wiping the drive from the Win8 install disc AGAIN it worked...
Only to find out there's no LAN drivers for my motherboard available...I'm on the computer now but only because I had a little backup usb wireless adapter I'm using to connect to my router.
Idk who I'm more mad at, Asus or Microsoft for not having some kind of generic driver to get me by.
So much for running Win8 while I have this platform anyway , see you all back on Win7
Working now after reboot...we'll see if it has another meltdown
