Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM install trouble

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM install trouble

Greetings, folks!

I downloaded the Win7 Ultimate x64 RTM from the MSDN, and after installing it on a second partition on my 250gb drive(sharing with XP Pro), I finish 'installing' and it restarts.

After the restart, it gives me the boot option of 7 or "Previous Version of Windows"(again, the XP Pro installation), of which I choose Windows 7.

It gets to a screen telling me it is configuring, then the screen eventually goes black, and the machine reboots once more.

After selecting 7 again from the boot loader, it just black screens and I get nothing for a good long while before I manually have to shut the PC down.

I had a similar issue with attempting this install yesterday, "upgrading" XP Media Center 2005, except it didn't do anything whatsoever after the initial restart.

I can see the windows files installed on the secondary partition from within XP Pro.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

You could try a start up repair:

Startup Repair

or, if that doesn't work, a repair install:

Repair Install

I'll give that a try. It'll have to be the 'Repair Install', since I haven't even gotten to the GUI.

I've also located this article while looking for answers:
Blank Screen After Installing Windows 7: Fix | WindowsFixUp

It directs me to place the batch file in a directory that doesn't exist.
