I am working on upgrading my office Dell Precision T4700.
- I am doing a clean install
- machine has 4Gb of ram
- I am using Windows 7 64bit
- Machine has an SAS 6 SCSI controller and two 250GB drives which are joined into a 500GB virtual drive
I just tried the install for the first time, it seemed to see the drive. I formated the drive and installed.
It seemed to go well but then after first install, the screen remained blank. It stayed so long that I thought it had hung. I shut it down and tried to go into safe mode, where it told me that it could not complete setup in safe mode.
So I restarted again and left it on the blank screen for a while and after 15 minutes, a colorful windows logo showed up but no mouse and nothing else.
I have waited about 15 minutes now and it does not seem to change at all.
I suspect that I need the raid drivers
. Let's see what's next...
