Clean install Win 7 On new hdd Taking infinite amount of time..

hello thanks for looking!, Please help

it gets to blue windows screen just after windows loading files with black screen and just sits their with blue windows background and mouse in middle.i also only have hard wired USB keyboard connected

first off my mother board is a gigabyte ma790x-ds4
ram is 2x2GB of DDR2 XMS2 800 corsair (4G)
hdd is 1tb Seagate baracuda ( i also have 3 other hdd's,although are disconnected for install)
gfx card is raedon hd 6770
processor is phenom 9550 quadcore
psu: Xtreme Pro 650W gold edition.

i have also disabled legacy A floppy drive support as i have seen this giving other people with the exact same problems difficulties,i have also tried removing one ram stick and swapping it ect,also i did a memtest on the ram it passed.as for the hard drive i ran sea-gate diagnostics iso, and scanned it also it passed.

i have tried running with different hdds the only thing i can think of now is the IDE LG dvd drive i have... Or the Processor or MB

If any one has some ideas it would greatly appreciated :),thanks allot

Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? If so confirm the ISO or download another, burn another DVD at 4x speed with ImgBurn.

Next try writing the ISO (extracted if necessary with ImgBurn) to flash stick using Universal USB Installer
with Win7 in dropdown menu. Boot under USB, Removable or HD's on one-time BIOS Boot Menu key, after setting HD as first to boot in BIOS setup.

If flash stick install fails, try it again after unplugging the DVD drive.

This eliminates the installer and OD as cause, which it appears you've not yet done.

I wonder why ImgBurn? I do all what you have suggested with Burnaware and there has never been a problem.

I am posing the question because ImgBurn, though about the best program, is far more user unfriendly and takes a long while to master than Burnaware.

You'd probably get as good with Win7's native Windows Image Burner, but we need to be failsafe here which ImgBurn does without a single hitch yet.
