    Hmm... ASUS F2A55? The PDF says it has SATA 3 connectors on it. If that's the MB I have. I'm afraid to open the case - the warranty thing...

    Looking back at the Amazon order:

    ASUS Desktop Computer M32BC-B01 AMD FX-Series FX-8310 (3.40 GHz) 8 GB DDR3 2 TB HDD AMD Radeon R7 240 2 GB GPU Windows 8.1 64-Bit


    Cant tell...

    Wait, M32BC | Tower PCs | ASUS USA
    says Sata 6.

    I've got 3gb of Win7_HomePrem_SP1_English_x64.iso
    burned on my dvd in that drive.

    But I changed the boot sequence and apparently it won't boot with that - it goes to the Windows 10 drive. What am I missing?

    It does not, it says 4 x SATA 3Gb/s

    These are the specs for the M32BC

    I have no idea, did you use the program I linked, and did you burn it at the slowest possible speed ?

    I`ve never heard of ashampoo

    Oops, I've gotta make a bootable disk out of it. Ashampoo is just a burning program.

    Not clear on what that is, but I need to use some kind of process on the Win7_HomePrem_SP1_English_x64.iso that I downloaded, to get it onto the DVD in bootable form.

    Maybe the specs page has a typo, and it should read 4 x SATA 3 6Gbps, but that`s really nothing to worry about.

    Until you get a ssd, I wouldn`t give it a second thought.

    Let`s get that install dvd burned.
