Is it an Asus mobo by any chance? If so then its possibly the BIOS version, if you have the latest BIOS installed then try the previous one, and if you have an older one then try the newer one.

It looks like your USB devices are drawing too much current. I'd suggest to try removing all USB devices and install Windows. Then, plug them back in. It could be an overdraw, TBH.

First I'd confirm that the front USB wires are plugged in correct. If so, then I would unplug all USB devices. If the error msg still comes up and reboots, then I would go to this link for your Motherboard and download the BIOS update and install it http://www.asus.com/products4.aspx?m...11&l3=307&l4=0

I wouldn't have USB devices plugged in during an installation ... that stuff can be added afterwards.

I removed the front usb wires and left the back ones. It worked fine after that. But then I connected the front ones as I installed Windows and now looks like the back ones don't work. What's up with that? I'm using the mouse to install the mobo components..Thanks for the help guys

Sounds more and more like you have an unstable BIOS ... from what I saw on that board at ASUS (see link I provided above) ... there's only one BIOS listed. It may be an update, or the original that comes with the motherboard. Confirm the version that is currently running on your mobo, then back it up using ASUS's BIOS utility. Then try installing the (newer) BIOS version. If the version already on your motherboard is in fact the same listed on ASUS's site ... then I would still backup your current BIOS and reinstall with the downloaded file.
If you have trouble figuring out how to back up your BIOS ... the utility should ask you if you want to back up your current BIOS before installing the newer version at some point during the installation.
