Keyboard is responsive
I have tried both 32- and 64-bit versions - but it always get stuck there
I have Intel 915 RYCK Motherboard with On-board Video, Sound and Network cards.
Can't seem to figure out what is issue
any help would be appreciated
Deactivate your firewall and anti virus
unattach everything except mouse, keyboard and monitor
Go to MS upgrade advisor, see if any problems are detected. This is done prior to installing again
Do a clean/custom install
If you download, ISO, make sure you burn at only 4x speed
If you have more than 2gb of memory, remove excess
