- That 2060 super fans won't spin unless the temperature is like 60C. So don't worry about the fans not spinning. You can install afterburner later and do a custom fan curve if you want but the fans not spinning is totally normal.

- What you have to do is create a windows 10 usb flash drive using Windows Media Creation Tools and unplug all your other drives. Leave your SSD plugged. Plug that usb flash drive and install windows 10 on your SSD. When this is over you plug your HDD.

Its a brand new motherboard so a bios update could be the solution but the comouter can post and i can get into womdows but is that still the solution for my ethernet not being detected and my boot drives?
Are you using a new Windows install or are you using your old windows 8 install from another system?

If you're using a new Windows installation your Ethernet device should be using the default Windows drivers. It should work.

What we need is more information.

What drives do you have? brand and model.

What OS are you using and is it a new OS install?

You have 3 drives. You want to install Windows 10 on your SSD right? The other two have a windows OS on them.

Yeah use Windows Media Creation tool to make a Windows 10 usb flash drive and use that to install Windows 10 on your SSD while your other drives are unplugged. When you replug them after the windows 10 SSD install just do what you want with them.

You cannot use an old OS installation on new hardware and if you do you will be chasing problems for weeks until you decide to do a clean install. When you install new hardware you install a clean OS.

Your 7.5GB flashdrive should be ok. Everything should go smoothly from here. Unplug drives except SSD. Install Windows 10. Replug HDD. Make sure the boot order is with your SSD. Let me know if you have problems after that. :)
