Windows 7: One Slow Installation Issue Solution

One Slow Installation Issue Solution

Good Evening All,

I spent about 4 hours last weekend trying to perform a clean installation of Windows 7 (64 bit upgrade version) from Windows XP 32 bit. I spent ages reading these and lots of other forums, trying all the suggestions listed for resolving the slow (almost frozen) installation problem and eventually found the answer.

I have an MSI P35 Neo Combo motherboard and the solution was that I do not have a floppy disk drive installed but it was enabled in my BIOS. As soon as I disabled it, the install went flawlessly and quickly.

Hopefully this might help someone else with their issue and solve it faster than I managed too.

Cheers,
Paul.

Thanks for letting us know and welcome. the other things that can cause that is 2 settings in BIOS. Max Mam, and Max cpu. both of those should be unchecked as well
