Windows 7: Win 7 Freezes after loading files

Where did you get Win7? The ISO and DVD burn need to be confirmed first. Burn another DVD at 4x speed using ImgBurn, or write to flash stick using this tool: Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3 | USB Pen Drive Linux

Reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

Try wiping the HD first: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

If these fail test the RAM and HD: RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp

Yes, you can install to this HD in another computer with it's HD's disconnected. Then if it won't start on the target hardware, SysPrep the HD to get it to start on any hardware: SysPrep to move HD to another computer

Greg, not sure what you mean by your first step, but I'll try reseting cmos, rewipe the HD, and test them both.

As for installing it on a separate computer...do I have to have their HD disconnected or can I just install it fresh? Or is there a way to disable their HD without disconnecting it?

If you have to plug in your HD to another computer, you might as well unplug the native HD's while you install. Otherwise you need to disable them in the computer's BIOS.

OK you can eliminate the installer as a suspect. But writing the ISO to a flash stick will sometimes work anyway: Install UltraISO trial, On File tab Open DVD, on Bootable tab Write Disk Image, Format, Write.

one thing I did try (and didn't mention) was I used a fresh download of the bootversion of Fedora 15 and it kinda did the same thing...got to a menu that said fedora will start in 10sec and then it froze up.

EDIT: Also, the only other system I have on hand that has a 64bit setup is a laptop, however, I have a typhoon USB HD hookup system that allows me to turn any IDE HD into a USB portable hard drive... the idea I was running off of was that I could install it that way and then plug the actual drive to my new computer. Would that work?

wow, after resetting the bios/cmos and rewiping the HD I have made even more progress... it made it to the screen that lets me use the mouse, but no menus popped up...


EDIT:
Looks like I'm just impatient after waiting so long for the initial "loading windows" and "welcome" screen junk...after a 5 min wait I finally got a window prompting me to proceed with the setup of Win 7.

Thanks for you help guys!

1) Try with the Sata HD.

2) Try with only 2gb ram.
