    I just bought components for a new computer and installed windows 7. However, I was only able to install Windows 7 while on the 8 bit HT Bus Width setting in BIOS. It would freeze on the 16bit or AUTO settings during install otherwise. But now with Windows 7 installed I can't change it back to AUTO or 16 bit. (when I do it freezes during OS startup) I have done as much trouble shooting as I can with my knowledge which has included updating BIOS/drivers. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Basic Specs:
    OS: Windows 7 (64bit)
    Motherboard: ASRock M3A770DE
    CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 455
    RAM: (2X) 4Gb Corsairs
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460
