Install problems

Hi all

I am having problems trying to install Windows 7. I have burnt the iso to a dvd and installed on to a second hard drive, it seems to install ok but it gets as far as where it says "pre beta copy" down in the bottom right of the screen and then thats it dosent go any further, I have no desktop just a black screen

Anyone have any ideas?

thanks

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.
 
 

Does anything pop up if you right clcik the black screen? What happens if you boot into safe mode?
Seems at this stage that it is having a problem with your graphics card.

thanks for the reply,
When I turn the computer on I get a choice to either select "older version of windows" or "windows 7", so I select windows 7 and it starts to boot, how do I run windows 7 in safe mode?

I havent tried to right click, but I think it just freezes.

Here is my spec:

Intel Core 2 duo E6400
2GB Geil Ram
Nvidia 8800 GTS 640mb gfx card
500GB Hardrive (Windows XP)
80GB Hardrive (WIndows 7)
Gigabyte DS3 motherboard
Blackgold dual DVB-T TV tuner (PCI express)

thanks

Keep Pressing F8 as its booting up....choose safemode.

When booted, type msconfig into search, select boot tab and configure your boot options. Make sure you dont delete any working OSes boot entries.
