    windows 8.1

    Well I am officially giving up on this build I can get win7 to run but not 8.1. I am either going to exchange the board for a new one or try something different.

    any suggestions? I need a ITX size board, no fan, and something about as fast as the AsrockQ1900 Intel Celeron. I am willing to spend more cash to.

    Windows 8.1


    I was the same situation i was unable to install windows 8.1 64 bit on asrock q1900dc-itx. Installation was very slow, laggy and hdd led was almost all time on. I waited few minutes between next window show up. I thinked that was chipset broken on this mobo but i solve it.

    Firstly turn on in bios all ahci. Boot frome uefi cd/dvd. Turn off csm (something about compatibility). I have also turned off lan on mobo but i think this was not necessary. And the most important: i have 2 disks ssd and wd red 3tb. All was connected to sata 3 ports (6gb). This mobo have two sata 3 ports and two sata 2 ports. My cd dvd was connected to sata 2 port. And all what i need to work was dc my wd red disk from sata 3 and connected to it cd dvd. When i tried to install again all was run perfectly and i installed win 8.1 in half of our :-)

    Manufqcture can warn us that if u wanna install windows 8.1 64 bit via uefi u need to be connected to sata 3 port...
