Hi. Some people, myself included, have had problems shutting down Windows 7. The people with this problem all have Asus P5B motherboards in common, or some variant. Has anyone out there with a P5B variant board noticed a shutdown issue with Windows 7 RC1? If it appears to be a common problem then we can report it. Thanks

Yes... I have a P5B-E motherboard and this very annoying shutdown problem is exists on my system too. And browsing the forums on the net ALL other P5B variant users had a same problem!
At this time i use 64bit Vista Ultimate and never experienced a problem like that.

i made direct upgrade from vista ultimate SP2 yestedray and i don't heve this problem, by the way upgrade is very simple you just need do move win7 files from iso image to any other harddrive and it isntalls from vista and after reboot it will countinue installing, upgrade took about 30 minutes but everything went right and system is very stable and everything's working fine and fast, i'm very happy with the new system, it's mutch better than vista SP2 and it has some amazing colors and gamma in movies and games, sound is fine as well on X-FI series card, i have GTX260 SP216 and with 185.85 driver games work more than fine, all the other basic programmes work fine too

Thanks George. Maybe you find a temporary solution to the problem. But i need to do clean install Win7! What can i do when i  don't own Windows Vista?!
I don't know who made the final solution Microsoft or Asus but before the win7 is reach the final state i hope someone is do... Just think about it. When you turn off the system the computer is not stops completely, some of the fans are spinning and the status LEDs are on too... At first i think this is a hardware problem!
And about the Win7 i totally agree with you! Far better than Win Vista on all points! But looks like exactly Win Vista. An inexperienced user is not see the difference. :) I think Microsoft is finally complete the Vista for now! :D

@Polwarth - what version & build of Win7 are you noticing this problem with?  32bit or 64 bit?

Based on when you asked this question, it doesn't seem likely you're running RC, perhaps it's build 7000?  7100?  

I wonder if you and your friends are having better luck with Win7 RC?    I'm installing RC 64 bit on my P5B equipped box now.

Than i don't understand this. I have a P5B-E motherboard with the latest BIOS. My Win7 is downloaded from the Microsoft official site. I'm use the official 7100 RC1 64bit version and i do a clean install. I download ALL the updates including test updates too. BUT the system is don't stop normally after install before other programs installed.
Maybe only 64bit version problem?!
I try the "unofficial" 7127 version... But that's a little risky.

I have the same exact problem - Windows 7 RC 64-bit Build 7100 on a P5B.  Windows does shut down completely, but the computer power supply (and the motherboard and fans) continue running.  I have to hold the power button in for 4 seconds to power down completely.  When I start up again, Windows boots fine.  So, I know the OS is completely shutting down.

The only suggestion I got didn't work - which was to change the ACPI 2.0 Support to "Enable" in BIOS.  But, here's the kicker - you have to do a clean re-install of Windows after APCI support is enabled in BIOS!  If you loaded Windows with ACPI disabled, then when you change it to enabled, the OS does funny things when you continue start-up and you have to do a repair installation of Windows.

Since I'm just experimenting, I cleared the BIOS and then set ACPI 2.0 Support to "Enable" and then re-loaded Windows clean.  The very first time I shut down from the Start menu, it worked.  But it has NOT worked on any shut-down since.  I still have to power down manually.

This is a really frustrating problem.  I hope it is a BIOS flaw that ASUS will fix in an upcoming BIOS revision.

i think this problem is only in 64 bit WIN7, i have 32 bit installed and it boots and shut downs very fast, faster than in vista actually

Well, I received a response from ASUS product support today.  It is as follows:


At this time we cannot offer support or troubleshooting help for Windows 7, and we will not have drivers available until the software is finalized (ie; no longer in Beta status, as a driver/app for one build often won't work correctly with others, necessitating a driver testing for each prerelease build and that isn't feasible). You will either need to contact Microsoft for troubleshooting/driver assistance or install a supported OS on the board in order for us to be able to assist you with any problems you may have.


So, it looks like all of us Win7 64 fans with P5B motherboards will just have to suffer until Windows 7 gets "finalized" (June of mext year) and ASUS decides to update the BIOS.  Or, get new motherboards.

This is no fun.
