Windows 7: Windows 7 Boot Hang

Windows 7 Boot Hang

Hello,

I am having an issue booting my Windows 7 image on some custom built hardware. The issue is, we'll say 1/10 times booting, the boot freezes when Windows says "Starting Windows, and the first red pixel of the animation comes into view.

After this, as per forums here, I enabled boot logging. The boot log does not seem to log anything when the freeze occurs. This makes me think there is an issue with the BIOS. This is a custom BIOS, and I am working with the manufacturer to try and see if they will send me an update, or at least do more research on this.

Here are my ntbtlog.txt file results. They seem to be consistent. Should I be concerned with any of the drivers that did not load?

I also enabled diagnostic startup, and still was able to reproduce my boot freeze/hang issue.

Any help would be much appreciated! Let me know if any additional data would be helpful, and I can try and post it!

Hi there, Welcome to Seven Forums!

Does booting into safe mode work?

D3LL,

Thanks for the welcome and the response! I just tried safe mode with minimal services and I was able to recreate the hang.

Hi I am not sure what you mean by recreate the hang?

Did it hang in safemode yes or no ?

Thanks,

According to the list of drivers you pasted, it does show some drivers that failed to load on boot...
Code:
Did not load driver \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\NDProxy.SYS
Did not load driver \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\NDProxy.SYS
Did not load driver \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\NDProxy.SYS
Did not load driver \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\NDProxy.SYS (Networking driver)
Did not load driver \SystemRoot\system32\drivers\parport.sys (	
Parallel Port Driver)
Did not load driver \SystemRoot\System32\DRIVERS\srv.sys (Server Driver)
If I'm not mistaken "NDProxy" is a networking driver. - Although I've never had any drivers fail to load during a Safe Mode boot I remain in the dark as to why these few would fail to load.

The best thing I can suggest at this point is revert to using the default standard BIOS ROM file for your motherboard, you may obtain this ROM from your manufacturer's website at the downloads section. Until your custom BIOS is fixed/updated I advise using the default ones made by the manufacturer until the BIOS file is actually sorted and rectified.
