    DP43TF will post but won't load from any drive


      This is a new configuration. DP43TF motherboard and E6300 Core 2 duo. It post with no errors. I can't get it to boot off of any drive. I've tryed to boot with DVD drive with windows cd, starts to load but then freezes. I've tried to boot of a usb drive and it does the same.

          If the system even freezes while booting off an Operating System Installation CD, we would recommend the following to begin troubleshooting:


          Restart the system into BIOS by pressing <F2> during the boot process.  Once in the BIOS setup utility, press <F9> to restore BIOS default settings.  Reset any customized BIOS settings. Clear all DMI event logs by setting the option to "Enable", which is located in the Advanced/Event Log Configuration section of the BIOS Setup utility.  Press <F10> to save the new settings and reboot the system.


          If the system still cannot boot up off a drive, I would appreciate if you can provide more details:


          1- Is the drive(s) listed in BIOS?


          2- Are you receiving an error message while bootting/freezing? If so, please provide the exact wording of the error message.
