I have Windows 7 Ultimate, and 3 pc's and I have licenses for 3.
I have a gateway desktop(Vista 64), gateway laptop(Vista 32), and a HP laptop(Vista 32).
I got Windows 7 installed on the HP laptop with no problem.
When doing a clean install on the Gateway machines, Windows 7 goes through the whole setup and installation process. I name my user account and computer name, pick passwords and choose how I want Windows to update. When it goes to prepare my desktop, it is about to load and is saying Welcome, then welcome changes from Welcome to shutting down, and the computer restarts. After the restart the Gateway recovery manager comes up and makes me restore my vista installation.
I am not using Upgrade media, however because the installation is doing the exact same thing on only the Gateway machines, and the HP installation went fine, it leads me to believe it is a issue with the manufacturer?
Anyone have any suggestions?
BTW: I have tried several times using different methods(i.e. upgrading as opposed to clean install) and still same result.
