NOTE: My computer was working fine until this.
So my ROG Maximus IV Gene-Z mobtherboard came in the mail today, used (that shouldnt make a difference, as the seller said everything was working). I unplugged the cables from my computer, swapped the cpu, ram, gpu and cooler to the new motherboard, then putting it inside the case and wiring everything up.
I go to boot my system, but I didn't have my front panel IO connected yet, so I pressed the "Start" button on the bottom of the board, starting the computer. After a few seconds the "No boot device detected, please insert boot device and restart" screen popped up. So I restart, going into BIOS. I changed my primary boot option to Windows Boot Manager (then the name of my SSD) and my secondary to just the name of my SSD. Is there a difference between just the SSD and Boot Manager??? Anyways, I saved the BIOS and restarted. This time, windows popped up and started to multicolor flag loading screen (windows 7). After it finished, it sat frozen at the flag animation, and then quickly flashed a blue screen...YES BLUE SCREEN... and restarted.
I've tried loading my windows disk, clicking "Fix my Computer" and resetting my drives to a backup 4 days ago on the 7th, but it didn't do anything. Also, if I try to install a new version of windows, I cannot install on my SSD for some reason (it says it's a GPT partition and cannot be installed on that). So then I just insert my disk AGAIN and press "Fix my Computer", but this time it says that my WIndows is out of date (because I just fucking went back to a 4 day old backup, and I cant use "Fix my Computer" anymore...
I do remember getting to a black and white screen that said: "Windows could not be launched because of a change in hardware or software"... no shit sherlock.
Did I just fry my machine or am I missing something?
I know this is a lot, you can ask questions.
Thank you so so so much in advance,
