SP1 Will Fix Windows 7 RTM Boot Freezes at 'Please Wait' Screen

Quote:

Customers running the latest iteration of the Windows client and server platforms have reported issues in which the boot process freezes completely, keeping them from starting up the computer. According to the Redmond company, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 users can get stuck at the “Please wait” screen, while the machine fails to go over that step in the startup process. The software giant did not specify exactly how severe this issue was or how many customers were affected, but it did indicate that Windows Error Reporting together with AppLocker were at fault.

According to a knowledge base article designed to provide information on the problem, customers need to restart the affected machines, as, once frozen, they will no longer boot. “You try to start a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. However, the operating system stops responding at the ‘Please wait’ screen that appears before you are requested to press Ctrl+ALT+DEL. Therefore, you cannot log on to the computer,” Microsoft informed.

From the article there is also a Hotfix available if you are have this particular problem, but is NOT recommended unless the problem is serious, since they are still testing the fix before it is released with SP1.

I predict that despite MS's best efforts, we will have an October-22nd-type influx of support requests when SP1 is released.

I haven't heard of this issue with 7/Server 2008 R2.

Vista on the other hand...

I wonder if this will also cure the "Black Screen of Death" that is NOT happening on many PCs

I think it does cure because i did apply it to myself a week ago after i encountered Black Screen at logon...

No real BlackSOD just that the system was hanging at logon screen. And sometimes looks the boot partition not to be recognize. Since, no problem so far.
