Windows 7: Help with RTM install (hangs at disk.sys)

28 Dec 2011   #11


This thread is very old but must be getting google hits so here's more info:

During install it should reboot into Setup which will be listed as a multi-boot Menu item that defaults if not selected. Did you not get this screen?

Infinite installer reboot loop is normally only a problem with autostarting flash stick, which is why it's best to set HD first to boot then trigger a flash installer using one-time BIOS Boot Menu key.
