Ahaha no worries. IIRC, after updating the BIOS on the F1A75-M Pro, the bar would at least show partial progress but instantly show it going to something like 33% right off the bat, but stay there and do the same thing. The odd thing was that those APU boards would actually do the task. This board the P67 Sabertooth looks to make the partitions (System Reserve and Main Partition) but not move any data across into them after hours (6 or so) of being left on. The entire time it shows the drives being accessed too :O.
Ehhh, I got impatient and installed Win 7 Ultimate from scratch on this machine. 1 day of being down on a brand new rig was killing me
