Windows 7 Pro 64
Problem Resolved

This was the solution supplied by Intel:

Follow the steps below to resolve the issue:

Update the system board BIOS to the latest version. Go to Intel Download Center and select product family, product line, then product name to find the correct BIOS file.
Change the BIOS setting, PCI AER Support, to Disable. before installing the operating system. Go to BIOS > Advanced > PCI Configuration.
Connect the network ports to a network, switch, or back to back (connect both ends of the network cable to different ports on the same computer) before the operating system loads the embedded NIC driver.
After the operating system install completes, download the latest Network Drivers for Windows.
This issue only affects network controllers based on the 82575 or 82576 chipset.

This is the situation. I am building two servers with identical hardware ... Intel S5520HCT mother board, dual Xeon E5607 2.26GHz, Seagate SATA 2TB drive, 8GB Crucial memory and OCZ Agility SSD drives. I am using the onboard video and motherboard has been update with the latest BIOS.

But when I install Windows 7 Pro 64 to 50GB partition on the SATA drive, or to a single partition SSD ... the system hangs after the final reboot right after "Updating Registry" and "Starting Services" during the "Completing Installation" phase.
The next input should be username and computer name ... but it never gets to that.

I have minimum hardware attached ... disabled networking in BIOS ... and tried with a number of different memory configurations ... etc .. etc ... but still the same result .. and I am now totally clueless. I even tested all my hardware on a Tyan S7025 board ... and there it installs without any issues.

What in the world do I do next? ... any help will be greatly appreciated
