System automatic restart on boot up

Recommended Posts

Installation went smoothly.

When powering up for the first time system restarts itself a some point during boot up sequence. After it resets itself tend to boot up fine even when selecting 'start windows normally'


Tend to do this verytime computer is (powered down then) powered up

I have this problem sometimes. I have a couple hard drives that it are trying to spin up so I think that it could be a power issue. Im at work so I don't remember the exact name for it but try adjusting the Hard drive power up delay option in your bios to maybe like 8 seconds.

Let me know if this works for you.
