First time poster, and im sorry that my first post is a problem, but i am completely out of ideas on how to fix this problem.
installing on a asus u35jc-a1 laptop. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-811-_-Product
Using a boot flash drive to do the instal a x64 windows 7. It is the same instal file that was used to instal windows 7 on this pc that i am typing on. Problem:
the instal can get to the point where i tell it what network i am on, and how i want my windows updates to happen, but when i hit a screen that says "windows is finalizing your settings" it goes black and restarts. When it loads back up, it has a load bar for windows, then the icon for a normal windows start up, then it goes to a grey screen desktop background with only my cursor showing. it sits for 5-10 seconds, then restarts. and repeats the process of a windows load bar, logo, grey desktop background for as long as i have the laptop on.
I am at a loss for what to do now. any ideas on what i can do? i really need this laptop for school Monday. Update
: as i was typing this, i tried to instal the x32 bit version, and still no luck. Update
: i was able to hook up a cd-rom drive to my laptop still getting the same problem when i use the cd to instal. Update
: my bios is set to the default settings. i tried setting the SATA configuration to IDE, instead of ACHI and i am still getting the same problem. Update
: i have tried this link: Device Manager - Access During Windows 7 Installation
and disable my video drivers, and still the same thing.
