Windows 7: Win 7 Custom Install Crash

24 Nov 2009   #21

Windows XP => Windows 7
If you have PS/2 mouse -- UNPLUG USB MICE !!!

I found also the install would crash exactly as Foot descibes if I had a USB mouse plugged in my desktop!!! My desktop is a Compaq SR2020NX which has a PS/2 mouse port on the motherboard. Stupid microsoft. Reboot with only the PS/2 mouse and it won't crash.

I'm happy now: I have dual-boot setup with WinXP and Win7 on two separate partitions.

Thanks for the heads up, ronsco!

When you are ready to extricate XP from that dual boot:

Use Partition Wizard free bootable disk to mark Win7 active, delete XP, move Win7 over onto deleted XP space, size as desired. Boot into Win7 installer Repair console and run Startup Repair 3 times.

Unless his processor is from the stoneage it looks from his specs that he has the horsepower to run it.

Hope you upgraded your RAM to a gig at least. Otherwise it should be able to run 7 fine.

But always a good idea to run Upgrade advisor since it will spot poss conflicts.

Win 7 Install Registry-Write Crash

I have been trying to install Win 7 (32-bit) on a 1st-timer new build (post works fine) and keep getting crash right after "Setup is updating registry settings". Installation goes into repair/recovery/etc. Had installation completed several days ago (working at it part-time...), but repeated crashes resulted in trying to do clean re-install. Problems first time as well, seem to have been fixed by installing drivers in repair mode. Have tried same this time w/o success - may not have used same sequence. Would work from setupact.log log file, but don't know how to read and fix results (have looked).

System specs:
CPU Intel i7-920
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R bios.F5 (updated)
Memory 3x2GB GSkill F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI
Graphics Card Gigabyte Radeon HD4850 1GB
Sound Card use mobo for now
Monitor/Display PNP display (no name) max reso 1400x1050
Screen Resolution 1400x1050
Hard Drives 0) OCZ 30G SSD - model OCZSSD2-1VTX30G
1) Samsung Spinpoint 500GB #HD502HJ
Case CM-RC690
Cooling Artic Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2

No joy, need some help. Anyone have some ideas?
