Windows 7
64-bit issue?


I'm new to the forums and am interested in becoming active in this community.

I'm currently running the legit Windows 7 32-bit Release candidate downloaded from on a AMD 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 4000+ with 5 gig of ram. Everything works flawlessly and I'm able to update and run everything in Windows 7 32-bit perfectly smooth with no errors.

Also from I downloaded the 64-bit Windows 7 RC. On a separate hard drive I did a fresh custom install of the 64-bit from disc. After install is complete computer reboots like planned, then after reboot the screen will display "Starting up windows" for hours.

I've tried re installing several times, re downloading install files, burning new discs, different bios settings, different hardware ect.. ect..and no matter what it seems to always lock up on the windows start up animation after fresh install and says "starting up windows".

Are there any known issues with the 64-bit version that are fixed on 32-bit?

Any help would be VERY appreciated!!
