Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 regular freezes

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

I tried running the Startup Repair 3 times. Didn't find anything on either of the attempts. I tried running repair from the installation disk by booting up from the installation disk and then running "Repair your computer". It started scanning and then froze in the middle of scanning. Next I tried re-installing Win7 on my other hard drive (1 TB Caviar) and that gets stuck at "Setup is starting". Not sure where to go next.

Gave up in frustration!!! Tried formatting the drive and installing Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit. Kept getting stuck at "Setup is starting". Took memory down to only 2 GB (2 x 1 GB) by taking out the older 1 GB (2 x 512 MB), but no luck. Tried a different hard drive - no luck.

Switched back to Windows XP 32 bit and everything works fine. No replacement of adapter card needed or hard drive failure. Not sure what the issue is - with older motherboard or memory or graphics card - I guess Windows 7 32bit or 64bit does not just work for me at this point.

I have Windows 7 RC 32bit running on my Thinkpad T41 (pretty old machine by today's standards) and I really like it. I was so hopeful that I could solve the problem and gave it almost a week and a half of continuous tinkering. But finally had to move on. Maybe some other day I will get some time to try re-installing it on a different partition/disk and see if it works.

If you do get your problem solved Iashep, please post, so I can try the same.

windows 7 64bit
 
 

Hey guys, I have recently purchased windows 7 ultimate 64bit with a new custom built system. I have exactly the same problem with you guys. This by far has been the biggest dissapointment I've ever encountered in regards to microsoft.

My system has

ASUS P7P55 LX motherboard
iCORE i7-860
8 GIG 2000mhz ram
ATI Radeon HD 5870 1Gig video Card

+ more. Its a 3000system.

I spent 250 roughly on windows 7 ultimate. Biggest waste of money ever. I have loved windows all my life up until now. I'm highly dissapointed. It isnt your system guys. I'm running a fairly high specc'd comp. I have the same issue as you guys. So it must be microsoft. Are there any possible UPDATES for win 7 ULTIMATE that you guys can point me to.. that will solve this problem. My email is von_miranda@hotmail.com . If ever there are any updates on this situation.. please email me....

I tried to install Windows 7 x64 on a different machine and interestingly enough, everything went pretty smoothly on the install. This one has an Intel motherboard, but the processor is older (not the newer iCore ones), but I do have 8 GB of RAM and the ATI Raden HD 5870 card.

What I am learning more and more is to try the installation without any thing plugged into the USB ports. Try to install with just the basic stuff attached - keyboard/mouse and monitor. You might also try with switching to the bare minimum 2 GB that you need for the x64 install and see where that leads you. It is indeed frustrating to have such a highly specc'd machine and not be able to install the latest/greatest OS from Microsoft without having to go through these hassles.

Where are you getting stuck at this point?

I went to my computer technician and it worked fine with him. I got to to install all the programs i needed and it seeems to be working fine now. I guess updating all your drivers to be compatible for windows 7 helps. It was possibly my keyboard or mouse that caused the freezing.
