Windows 7: Beware Windows 7 and NEW AMD 7000 CPU's

21 Apr 2009   #11


Yikes, another perfect example of why AMD should just give up and stick their heads in the mud.

He said he's running a shop. It's not really costing him much or anything to try.

The Owl: What are you installing these from (DVD, HDD, USB)? If it's DVDs, were they both from the same source (i.e. ISOs recorded by you or someone else, both on the same burner)? What I'm getting at is it could be the installation media... I've had all sorts of wierd things happen to windows when installing from defective media (even AFTER they install more-or-less without problems)...

Windows 7 build x64

It can't be all 7000 range CPU's as i'm running one on my second PC(7750) with no issues . Ran Vista on it and now Windows 7( all versions thats out). There nothing wrong with AMD CPU's. Also have Phenom II CPU's and all is running without any hick-ups

You could try the tip on this thread Build 7068 won't Install (post #9) and use it to disable the CPU. The installation will still work 100% but the advance features of the chip will be disabled. That way you can pinpoint 100% if it is in fact the CPU.

Hope this helps :)

P.S i've used this method & it does work.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Incosistent Bios perhaps -- I assume you've tried testing all sorts of different combinations.

BTW will the system BOOT anything -- say even a DOS system disk.

XP and Windows 7

sorry for the slow reply been sorting customers machines out, it will install and run XP without a problem, well still the same with the new board and chip (I noted a patch installed to the CPU) and I still cannot load anything newer than the 7000 build (which is the closest to Vista) I have most of the builds right up to and including the 7100 versions both 32 and 64 bit but 7000 is it stupid part is the machine will load and run no problems XP which is fine but I bought this machine in purely to test bed the windows 7 OS, I havent tried Orbital Sharks idea and am reluctant to do so thing is the board and CPU is a standard package / bundle that I get from the wholesaler and would be the base line machine I offer customers so I am worrying where this will lead
