Windows 7: install won't finish

31 Jul 2010   #1

Windows 7 and XP on my server
install won't finish

P4 3.0 Ghz
3.5 gigs ram
radeon 4650 agp
two 150 gb hdds in raid 1

During install, once the computer reboots, the computer locks up during the step:
Completing Installation...

First the mouse freezes, but the three dots still go, then the three dots(one dot, two dots, three dots, again) freeze.

I have tried two different sets of hdds and several installs. Happens every time.

Now, Once it starts to restart the first time, I am never prompted to remove the cd. If I leave it in, The setup restarts, so I am removing before the first reboot.

Try removing all but 2gb of RAM, swap RAM, test your RAM using memtest86 CD for 5-6 passes.

Try un-RAIDing the HD's to install Windows 7 to just one HD with SATA drivers. Set SATA controller to AHCI first, then IDE if necessary.
