Windows 7: Win 7 stuck on completing install

Win 7 stuck on completing install

Hey guys, since my school let us download any version of Windows 7 for free I thought I would try and install Windows 7 RC Ultimate (x64) onto my desktop. The problem is that when it goes to completing install it stops and wont progress. At first I thought it was just taking a long time but I let it run over night (6+hours) and still no luck.

What do I do I dont want to go back to my vista install

I tried it a second time and it seemed to take it... but then I realized RC is not the final release . so Im making a Windows 7 pro disc and trying that now . Ill post again if I have trouble with that.

Welcome to SevenForums,

I see by your specs you have 4gb ram. This has been a minor problem on some new installs of Windows 7 Try it with 2gb for install, then you can put the other 2gb back in later. What speed did you burn the .iso ? 4x seems to work the best !

I fixed it, DocBrown. I took out all my USB devices when installing and it seemed to work. Now I have the full retail of Windows 7! woohoo!
