Hello Frazatto, I'm sorry for the inconvenience that you have faced with your board; however I’m going to give some recommendations.
First of all please let me know which is the current BIOS version of your motherboard?
Which is the model number of the processor you bought?
Then, in regards to the operating system let me inform you that we this specific motherboard support Windows Vista and Windows XP.
The support for Windows 7 is what we called As-is. This board is out of support so latest BIOS available will be from 2010 and drives from 2011.
Hello Sylvia, thanks for the reply.
You can check the bios version in the attached file from my original post, it's the latest on. But apparently, very badly updated by the previous owner of the MB.
The processor is a E8600, which supports VTx.
I have no issues with drivers on Linux what so ever, it was an easy installation and the OS is working fine.
Well.....I got this MB from a friend, he must have mis-update it.....
I'm thinking about making a dual boot with windows just for that
Can you tell me if it's possible to execute this procedure using a windows virtual machine?!
My previous processor didn't have virtualization support, that is why I changed it. And that was when I noticed there was a problem with the bios.
Sorry for the file, here it the picture I was talking about:
