BIOS memory settings per sticks - especially the HyperXs (C9s) on a basic board - manually apply volts.
Confirm that the BIOS shows AHCI.

Memory is absolutely required for an initial install which is why I suggested a bios update and then new media.

Glad ya got it sorted out dude! I would still update the bios! And check the memory settings like Charlie suggested.
I did what you both suggested after i got windows installed.

Latest Bios
changed the voltage on the RAM

I really appreciate the help guys

Cheers!
