bcavnaughkelkel1Another thing I am noticing; if I change the boot order so that my DVD drive is first, why does it seem to 'forget' and reset so that Windows boots first?Is Fast Boot enabled in the Bios, also the DVD will need a Bootable Disk for the MB to boot from.

FenodoreeSorry to be dense, but I'm struggling to get my Windows 7 drive working with USB keyboard and mouse on the Z390 dark. I can't do a fresh install, as I've a bunch of programs that can't be re-installed. I data copied my Windows 7 onto a new SSD and installed that into the new build. While after a lot of trial and error I was able to get the Windows 7 to actually *boot*, I can't get keyboard and mouse working. Luckily we had an old ps2 mouse lying around but only usb keyboards. When you said: I can confirm install W7 Ultimate on x299Dark z390Dark via usb storage media and with hub on z390. Do you mean you installed another USB hub device that windows 7 would recognize? Is this the solution I should go with? I can't get the Windows 7 to see keyboard or network for that matter, so I can't even try the 'search for drivers' option. As I don't have the space to have two computers and I need the apps on the Windows 7 build that I can't migrate to Windows 10, this is a big frustration for me.
FenodoreeI tried looking for Asmedia drivers to install and found a few oddball sites and tried them anyway, but it didn't seem to help or do anything one way or another, frustratingly. If you've a link to recommend or point me at, I'd greatly appreciate it. Maybe my google skills have failed from banging my head against the keyboard and hardware.... :)
