I am trying to install Windows 7 on my Vista Ultimate PC.
I have installed these OS thousands of times and never had problems. I have also installed 7 on one of my gaming PC's.
When I try to install it on my other computer the install process go's normal, it reboots the first time however when it says "Completing Installation" the HDD LED is constantly light and it just seems to hang, after about 15 minutes the install process crashes and takes me to the post screen. The computer generally doesn't get past the post screen. If I restart it will then load Windows 7 back into the install process only to tell me that I need to restart the installation process due to an unexpected shutdown or restart.
I have a strong feeling that it might be a RAM problem. I had similar problems with Vista, it wouldn't boot past the Window's Loading logo and freeze, however it would load into Safe Mode easily. Even running the start-up repair from the disk didn't help.
I've tried installing x86 and x64, I've deleted the partition, I've removed all USB devices, the only thing I can't remove is the graphics card as my mobo doesn't have a graphics chip, floppy drive is disabled in BIOS.
Does anyone know what is wrong with this system!?
