Windows 7: Windows7 Pro 64 bit

Windows 7 Professional (supposedly) 64 bit
 
 

Windows 7 came from the computer shop.

Ok and yes I have the lan on the stick it was always the missing driver .

I'll format and try again with lan and windows updates only. I wasn't aware 7 became the authority and yes totally used to XP. Hopefully that will eliminate the issues.

Not always, but you'll never know if you don't run with the installer/optional Updates drivers for awhile after selecting Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware

Having a baseline perfect Clean Reinstall will also help us troubleshoot better.

Since it has solved performance problems in the past and not just boot issues and reinstall blockages, I'd also wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command from DVD Command Line. DISKPART At PC Startup

Well letting the installer do updates came back with errors out the door. I gave up letting windows control which updates as most of them failed. Then attempting to clean install off of the usb became an issue so i went back to the DVD. The first time worked like a charm (which was cool). I'm not sure why windows 7 is so tempermental in doing clean installs its almost like it has a mind of its own.

I started with the mobo usb, intel mobo drivers(did not install the intel raid drivers, as they had been causing issues as well) and the lan driver. I then proceeded installing Nvidia driver by itself from windows and that worked great.

Right now windows has a total of 52 important updates. I installed down to the last 17-15 (one by one in sequence before i began getting serious issues) I did instll windows IE9 first (bad idea) which i was hoping to get back to and reinstall but alas the major crash happened first. I also did the defender updates and malicious software remover prior to the initial updates.

I think ive narrowed in on which updates they are as they have been crashing everything to the point of unrepariable, not resorable and no safemode access. I belive the updates in question have to do with intel as they immediately caused major problems or issues. Apparently im not the only one and was not aware they had been a promblem for the past couple of years.

Wish there was a site that dictated which updates not to install at clean install or windows remove them so that people dont install them.

On another note ive memorized my product key and im glad im running AMDs W7 in the rest of the house as they have not seen this carnage and i can research the errors coming up

Set a restore point before each group of Updates so that you can System Restore from System Recovery Options if an Update malfunctions. You can then narrow down the group to the problem update by installing them singly with Restore Points. Once you find the problem Update post it up here in our Updates forum and start a Support case on Windows Updates website.

actually it did that for each update (set restore). The major malfunction voided all of that though

Remember the old gui for vista or xp when booting into windows. Well it decided that was windows 7 new logo.

Thats why i said the dvd was random. its never the same issue it always seemed to forget something or crash.

This is why I suggested yesterday you might need to wipe the HD before reinstalling with Diskpart Clean Command, since some performance problems can result from bad boot sector code which carries over.
