Windows 7: infinite loop, cannot install, Radeon X1050

infinite loop, cannot install, Radeon X1050

Hi all,

I have attempted to do a clean install of Win 7. When it gets to the point to restart for first use, I get the BSoD and "The device driver got stuck in an infinite loop". The machine just keeps rebooting itself, getting the same message, then repeating over and over.

I tried booting in Safe Mode but not allowed -- "Windows cannot complete installation in Safe Mode. ..."

I am suspect that the driver in question is the Radeon X1050 based on other threads and searches. But I have no idea how to correct this problem. I guess I could go out and buy another graphics card, but that seems a bit severe.

And since I am now without a workable operating system, how could I replace the suspect driver even if I found a Win 7 driver?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Well 2 workarounds possibly

Boot from the dvd and attempt a repair install

Clean install win 7 again


The thing I would try first is to boot from the dvd and while in safe mode dont try to complete the install but instead go to the device manager (type device manager in search) if sucessful go to the display tab and uninstall the driver. see if win 7 finds a working one on reboot

Hi Ken,

Thanks, but unfortunately I am still dead in the water.

I have tried doing clean installs about three times now, with always the same results.

I have tried the "repair" option, and that doesn't help.

When booting from the DVD, there is not a "safe mode" option. It just attempts to do the install. (I got the OEM System Build Pack, maybe that is why I cannot do a safe mode install from the DVD.)

Still in my endless loop ...
