So a few months back I got myself an Asus G60VX with Windows 7 64bit on it. Everything was going good until one day it wouldn't go past the Windows graphic loading screen. For hours. It was very frustrating.
In order to backup my hard drive, I brought in an Ubuntu Live CD to temporarily run Linux and backup my files on an external hard drive. Then I used the CDs provided for me by Asus to recover/wipe the system. Came with 2 discs: One titled "Windows 7 Recovery for Windows 7 Products," the other, "Driver
&Utility Ver 1.0 G60VX."
I booted up the Recovery CD, it booted up. After a few tries with it freezing up along the way, I finally made it through the recovery, and the computer requested the "support CD," so I put in the Driver/Utility CD. Again, after multiple tries with it freezing up along the way, I FINALLY made it through the driver installations, and it brought me to the screen: "Setup is preparing your computer for first use."
There is now nothing I can do to get past it. I've tried F8, starting in safe mode, no matter what I do. The reason this is pissing me off so much is because I'm totally going the legit route and everything. How the hell can I not wipe my own computer???
