Windows 7: Installation problem

XP Pro / 7
Installation problem

I have burned the image for both the 64 bit and 32 bit versions of 7 and ran into the same problem in each. After booting from the dvd and once windows has started and goes to the background screen, there is a loading cursor for a few seconds and then nothing for at least a minute.

Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

Hi Meine,

A minute isn't very long. Might try giving it a few minutes to see if it gets going again. The only other thing I can think of right off is that sometimes lots of RAM will cause a problem with installations. If patience doesn't work, might try taking out all but one stick of ram. It can be replaced after the installation is complete.

Hope this helps.
