I suggest you PM Leopard as he has researched this in depth and may be the expert on it outside of Mac forums..

So glad to hear you found the fix! What tipped you to a combination of chkdsk and Boot Logging?

We use chkdsk for suspected HD issues, and Boot Logging on slow or hanging start-up. So it makes sense it might pinpoint the failing driver if it has only made it to the Starting Windows screen before stalling.

Did you reinstall the driver or how exactly did it resolve since Boot Logging only reports the fail?

I'll remember this when drivers are called into question due to boot stalling. In fact, we should try bootlogging more on failed install startups since we can get to the log through the DVD mini-explorer where Drivers are loaded.

Thanks for reporting back and the rep which I hardly deserve!

Enjoy Win7 on your Mac. From all I've heard, they're great machines.

I got the idea for the 'CHKDSK' from my experiences with Linux; 'e2fsck' would check the file system after every unclean shutdown. Thinking of this, I figured it couldn't hurt to check NTFS for incosistencies after a (forced) unclean shutdown.

I got the idea for the boot logging from a thread I started on one my my favorite forums.
Hey guys... Anyone here good with Windows 7 troubleshooting?

And looky what I found greg;

Here is the Microsoft hotfix for the problem (I just found this.):
Computer that has an nVidia MCP7A-GeForce 9300 rev B1 motherboard together with an LSI Logic FW533 or an FW643 1394 Host controller crashes after you install Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

Here is some information regarding the power states Microsoft listed in the hotfix:
Advanced Configuration and Power Interface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Here is the ntbtlog.txt from the first successful boot:

Notice the last line...

I've also attached a screenshot of the power data device property.
(Notice the unspecified...?)

gregrocker, to be honest, I think I fixed the problem because of the very fact I booted into that recovery mode in the first place. My theory is, by doing so, Window's advanced power management features were not utilized, so the problem causing low power 'D3' never initialized, allowing the OHCI driver to load properly. Then when I rebooted, the driver had already loaded properly so when the machine entered a D3 mode again the OHCI correctly did a soft reset.



That's only a theory though. Perhaps you (or another member) can verify and/or correct my theory.

Interesting to say the least. I feel like Sherlock Holmes now.

All this info does lead me to one more question though; should I install Microsoft's hotfix or leave it alone now that it's working?

(And yes you deserve the Rep by the way. )

Sincerely,

Andrew
