Windows 7: 7057 x64 install issues and lockups

16 Mar 2009   #1

Windows 7 x64 7048
7057 x64 install issues and lockups

I know many are having issues, but wondering if there is anything common that could help.

First off, these are all clean install attempts and not upgrades. I have the Asus P6T Deluxe with the Core I7 920 processor and 6gb of ram with the Nvidia Geforce 9800+ graphics card. WD 640GB SATA HD which I format during the install process. Build 7000 and Build 7048 all worked flawlessly. I also unplug all peripherals that are not needed.

Here are my issues....
1) Takes forever to install. Basically 10 - 15 minutes at ever section of the install process. Common?
2) Once I was able to get it installed I had nothing but problems. Right clicking on the desktop would basically lock everything up until the system cleared (basically go ghost like and not respond). I ended up reinstalling from scratch again and although it ran a little better, the performance test had problems and could not complete the graphics part. I updated my graphics driver and also my motherboards drivers.

Longer story a little shorter...I ended up reinstalling again with another version of 7057 and still had problems. I tried installing from DVD and also jump drive but always the same. I have now reinstalled 7048 which worked flawlessly.... I never tried the X86 version...only the X64.

Wondering if there is a smoking gun out there for these issues?

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

It's hard to say but I'am sure there were plenty of messed up copies of 7057 floating around and it's hit and miss with those torrent sites so you probably just got a bad copy. I upgraded to 7057 and it works fine for me.

Thanks. I did try 3 different copies, 2 of which I know worked ok for others. x64 seems to be a bigger issue than the x86 version. Oh well, I see there is already a 7061 so all will be ok.
