Hi guys, today I bought the MSI Z87-GD65 Mobo, 2 Sticks of 4GB RAM and the Intel i7 4770. I bought these to upgrade my old system and the only other parts im using is my Nvidia GTX570, PSU and my 2TB Seagate HDD.

Everything hardware works normal, no abnormal signs.

My problem is when it boots up, it says "find --set-root --ignore-floppies --ignore-cd /win7ldr. Error 15: File not found"
I've tried using my windows 7 disc and it says all my stuff is still there and the startup troubleshooter doesn't find any issues. I tried putting my RAM in properly and its in nicely. (they are in the 3rd and 4th slot though) My power is fine, its just the BIOS isn't booting it =(

-The BIOS is updated
-No Hardware faults

Note: when i press any key to continue, it comes up with GRUB4DOS and has options like: "Windows 7 with SLIC Loader (Default)"

Please help me if you know anything!

I assume you didn't reinstall your Windows and your are using your old Windows installation with new mobo? I don't think it will work, you need to reinstall your Windows.

Those memory sticks should be in slots 2 and 4  for dual channel use.
Is there code AD or A0 leds on in MB, when that boot up message is showing?

Is that new or old install of Windows 7?

As mentioned, you have too many conflicts if using a previous (migrated) OS installation. Recommend a fresh OS install. And as Mummy said, RAM for dual channel goes in the Dimm2 and DIMM4 slots.

Did you install the ram properly as previously noted? Not doing so will lead to slowdowns at minimum and mostly likely crashes etc. Some times it can even lead to seemingly unrelated issues such as the usb issue you are now reporting.


As for the USB issue, flash the bios to the most recent version using M-flash + ME.

Yeah about the USB issue, its for my Razer Megalodon Headphones, I've tried different ports, it works on other PCs... I am going to try change the RAM around and see if that might fix it. I'm hoping I don't have to risk flashing the BIOS, because I've never done it before.

Update: Did not work, I tried it in the USB 2.0 slot and instead of it usually installing it as a Unknown Device, it said Razer Megalodon for 3-4 seconds before identifying it as an unknown device.
