Windows 7: install issues

vista 32 bit and 64 bit
install issues

I had Vista 64 bit Ultimate on my HTPC and I tried to install Windows 7 32 bit as a clean install, every time I get the new OS up and running I have no access to any programs. I click on Internet Explorer for example and I can see that it's open in the task manager, but no functionality whatsoever on the desktop. I thought this might be because some of my 64 bit system files were still in windows.old so I formatted my C drive before the last install. Same result. Any ideas why this might be? How I can fix it? Thanks in advance!

M3N78-VM motherboard 4 GB RAM
Xonar HDAV 1.3 slim sound card

anything else you need?

The HD was partitioned into 3 sections before, 100 MB system reserved, 150 GB for OS and then 350 GB was partitioned to make the D drive for movie storage.

There is also a 1 TB E drive as well.

Any reason for this repeated failure? Do I also need to format that little 100MB partition as well??

Solved! It was the drivers from my Xonar HDAV 1.3 Slim that killed my OS! You need to apply a Vista 32 bbit game crack just after the driver install and then you're in luck!
