Win 7 install issues Asrock boards?

Recommended Posts

I've been reading up that you can't use USB keyboard mouse or USB bootable Windows 7 on some 1151 boards, namely Asrock. Does anyone know what's up with this?

 

I have two WIP upgrade builds both with Asrock boards

 

Pro4S

6600K

Gskill ripjaws v 2x8gb ddr4 3200mhz

 

Or

 

Fatality http://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemnumber=N82E16813157676&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-Mobile&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-Mobile-_-pla-_-Motherboards+-+Intel-_-N82E16813157676&gclid=CLjgppG93MsCFQ6maQodb7sJAQ&gclsrc=aw.ds

6700K

Same ram

 

It's 450 vs 680 USD... But anyway I use win7 from a DVD but I use USB KB/mouse - is it an issue?

 

Edit: apparently this is all 1151 boards - hmmm - wonder why Intel did that...

What if I have an optical drive and ps/2 keyboard....  would that work?  I might be able to dig around for an old ps2 KB

 

Oh I see your link now... looks like I can enable their USB "sim" with and use my optical drive.

 

Thanks for that!

 

Any comments on the board itself?  Asrock used to be pretty junky but they're all made in Taiwan anyway now hehe

It's  a solid performing board so far.  It's populated with 16GB GSKILL DD4 and an i76700K that I am OCing to 4.6 GHz running rock solid.  Time will tell, I suppose.
