Windows 7: Installation Crashes

I can't work out what you mean by "Install in safe mode", but nothing I tried worked.

The only .dmp files in my system are an empty, 0 byte "MEMORY.dmp", a couple of small files in my uTorrent system folder and a few somewhere in my Firefox Application Data folder, none of which I think are what you're looking for.

I don't see me getting hold of a different CPU any time soon, either.

When you say installing from Safe Mode, I'm not sure I get what you mean, exactly. Do you mean going into Safe Mode in XP and installing from there, or trying to install as usual, and then booting up into Safe Mode? As for the latter, I think it's unlikely I'll be able to manage to successfully install it. Also, it doesn't appear to crash in the same place each time.

I decided to do MS's Win7 upgrade advisor, and it came up fine, aside from saying I'll need to get new drivers for my X-Fi and Wireless Card, it said "An update is required to make this device compatible with Windows 7", about the Gigabyte GBB36X Controller. It said the same for the X-Fi and the Wi-Fi card; I'm not sure what that controller does, though, and if it's significant.

You know you never mentioned the RAID. Its often a problem in win 7. try unplugging the raid and see what happens

Might also want to put it in your sys specs for the future

I only have 2 hard drives - the 80GB IDE drive (currently C and the 320GB SATA drive - that's it.

What is it you want me to unplug?

Try to boot from the installation disc and at the "Press any key to start from DVD / CD" press and hold F8. It should bring you to the startup screen and there you can select safe mode or the option to record a log file. It will list all the drivers as they install and you shuld see where it stops.
Edit: Did you look for a *.dmp file? Yes you did, sorry I missed that post

I don't know, to be honest, I didn't know if it was something for the chipset or something. I don't know much about motherboards and their controllers, or RAID, to be honest.

I'll have a go at installing in Safe Mode.

Edit: Any idea why I get the green loading bar with my 8800GT but with the X1900 and on my laptop (an X800, I think), I get the glowy logo?

Safe Mode boot - stuck at ..\DRIVERS\disk.sys for a while, but continued after a while. Went into installation as usual and then same issue.

Where would I go to view the log of an installation (obviously with logging enabled).

Also, just incase there was an issue like my 320GB was in RAID 0 (not much idea about this), I tried disconnecting it and just installed onto a partition on my C:, with no change.

I got the logo when doing a clean install and the bar when upgrading (in my case from Vista). Was it an upgrade in both cases?

None of these are upgrades in the sense of retaining programs - I don't think it's even possible to upgrade from XP, but some of these installations are started from within XP, followed by a restart whereupon it attempts to complete the installation. Others are from the boot disc. Either way the results seem the same. Though no matter where its started, the nvidia card has the bar, the ati has the logo (though I'm not implying the make is the reason).

What I can suggest is this:

1. Unplug SATA HardDisk
2. Run installation from USB (pressing f12 boot menu> HDD>WHATEVER USB NAME Drive)

From What I know, '7' creates a drive name ' X: ' as a dump during the installation process.

If that fails to work, perhaps you may wish to provide the Model of your Gigabyte Mainboard to ascertain if you are using IT 8212 SATA/ RAID controller.

If you are indeed using that controller, you can look for 1.7.2.9 version of it on the net.

You can load the driver at the screen where you select HDD for '7' to install in, during the installation progress.

Hope this helps you as a fellow Gigabyte mb user.
