Windows 7: Numerous attempts to install Win7 64

Did the message say it didn't install correctly, or did it ask if it installed correctly?

If your system is stable after you install Windows 7, and after the Windows Updates, I'd wait for a while before installing anything from Asus. See if applications work, drivers install, devices work, etc. If things seem ok, I wouldn't bother with any of the Asus drivers.

The installer package completed with a "successful" message, so correct as far as it was concernend. BUT win7 popped up with a message along the lines that it may not have installed correctly and gave me 2 options. Reinstall with recomended configurations OR "yes it did install correctly" if i recall.

I always tell Windows that it installed correctly. If things don't work down the line, then I uninstall and reinstall in compatibility mode.

Well the last attempt failed...

I did the Bios update successfully, brought system down to bare bones (video, 1 stick of 2Gig, key & mouse).

It got through the install but did not self-optimze the video display as it normally does. When installing the Nvida drivers and reboot, I get black screen with mouse but nothing else. Did not get win explorer crash as was seen before tho.

I dont get it. This system ran wonderfully for XP and Win7x32 RC but i just can seem to get it up on win7x64. I dont get any HW errors, just window type errors (this thing or another has stopped working) and no recovery will solve it on its own. Ill take one more attempt at an install and not touch any vendor drivers, just use what Win selects. If that fails then im gona call it a night and run at it tomorrow.

Well im back again and still with no luck...

Have dont a bare basics fresh install with latest bios as recomended by the fine posters in this thread. The "crashes" i get are different from time to time. Currently I have just the drivers as selected by Win7x64 and was able to get the machine up and running last night, even did some surfing before i packed it in for the night. So i get home tonight with the intention of checking for more info and now the pc wont load windows! Again!

I get the Starting Windows screen but the nice little flying graphic does not come up and the machine just sits there - no paging to the drive or anything. If i let it sit long enough it reboots itself... and goes to the Win error recovery screen. the Launch Startup Repair attempts to restore but resutls in the exact same situation.

I insist that i do not have defective hardware as this EXACT pc was running XP and Win7RCx32 just fine for months. As per previous posts in this thread, the few time i get the pc up and working i quicly get "Win Explorer Stoped Working" errors that wont go away ever and then need to reinstall... again and again and again.. you get the picture.

Im at the point that im seriously considering going back to XP for a year until Win7 gets its s*i* together - they cant blame the vendors or the drivers, cuz even using the WQHL drivers that Win loads up produce the same situation as any attempts where i have used the vendor supplied 64 drivers.

PLEASE any help!

I don't think you have defective hardware. I just think the drivers that Asus provided to Microsoft are complete crap. You aren't the only person that's had problems with an Asus board in Windows 7.

At this point, maybe you should reset your BIOS to default values. If you are running RAID, switch to IDE. Make sure everything is set to the default settings. Then, boot up Windows and see what happens. If things aren't working, try installing again.

out of curiosity, the disk packaging i have sez its the "Win Home Prem 7 64 - bit English" DVD does this disk have the 32 bit version on it, and if so, how do i select this as an install option? Ps i dont have a floppy on this rig.

since I have done so many install of this bleeping OS, one more on 32 as an experiment wont hurt me.

Cheers.

Have you removed all unnecessary hardware - all drives except the system drive, USB devices, sound cards, etc? Also, have you tried dropping down to 2GB RAM? Have you updated your BIOS to the latest version?
Keg, he did that at the top of the thread.

If i selected the "use recomended and reinstall" it would repetatvively grind my HD but no action on the the screen what soever and the install process showed still running in taks manager (with an *32 beside it for a 64 bit driver package?!?!?!). If i selected "it installed properly" I would still get all the Windows Explorer errors,etc...

My question, is, should i be using the manufactures drivers or stick wiht the ones windows gets going in (there are no issues reported in Device manager)?
Install as administrator.
Download the file to a folder or desktop, point to the file, right click your mouse and point on "Run as Administrator".

Enoch, some questions if I may?
  1. Are you installing directly from the dvd?
  2. Is your flat panel connected via dvi? Or HDMI?
  3. You have prior issues installing the chipset updates from Assus?
  4. Is your hard drive connected via SATA?
  5. Does your bios read the hard drive as SATA?
Your issue suggests problems with your video card.
Check these points out and let us know.
