I got a new motherboard, and it works fine, only windows wont boot. Idk if it's because I have the oem version of window or if its a driver problem or what. Help would be appreciated

Need some more information.

1. When you install Windows, does it complete the entire install process?
2. Are you getting the Windows is starting boot screen? Black screen? Blue Screen?
3. Some mainboards(not many) require that the boot drive be on a specific SATA port to boot. Check your mainboard documentation.

4. Check temps? Power cables? Power supply good?
5. SSD is known to be working?

Yes, it completed the install process. And it does the part where the windows logo fades in, then it blue screens. The ssd is working fine. The mobo is the biostar hi fi z77x
