I had exactly the same problem, Windows 7 was running fine ( idndt had new hardware added, neither used an external USB disk) and it simply started freezing in windows boot logo, when running in safe mode if freezed when loading CLASSPNP.SYS.
I did a new fresh isntall and it installed fine, but when it boot it then freezes again!
So i went to the store where i bought the notebook to see whats was wrong, they even put a new HD and they installed the Windows 7 i had, and voilá, the problem continued existing with a new HD, so they installed a Windows 7 original and finally it all went fine
So the problem seams to be caused by some drivers
or updates that are added to those Windows 7 AIO compilations that isnt compatible with all hardware.
Stop installing windows compilations and try to get an original Windows .iso like i did and youll have it running smoothly...
