Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate N x64 Hang Up in Expanding Windows F

Windows 7 Ultimate N x64 Hang Up in Expanding Windows F

Yesterday I finished downloading from MSDN the WIndows 7 Ultimate N x64 to burn the ISO I used imgburn to burn it's ISO and make it bootable. After creating the bootable CD I Install in on my PC and suddenly i encounters some hang-up which is i didn't encounter some of x64 and x86 Win7 OEM Editions. So once again I try to install the Windows 7 Ultimate N x64 Edition on my PC but Im only stuck up Expanding Windows Files I just leave it for 1 hour but still 0% on the progress. Is it possible that the problem is with the Windows 7 Ultimate N x64 that i have created?

First thing to check is the burn. Download ImgBurn put DVD in drive and Verify disk. Best burn is ImgBurn 4x wth Verify - it never fails.

Verify the HASH checksum for the ISO from MSDN. Compare it to your downloaded ISO using Attachment 40269.

Look on your computer manufacturer's website Support Downloads page for your model for a newer BIOS version update. Current version should be given on BIOS screen on bootup or by entering BIOS setup using F-key given on first screen.

WHile in BIOs, check how your SATA controllers are set. Try AHCI, unless iDE drives.

Also in BIOS make sure DVD is set to boot first.

Boot from the WIn7 DVD and select Custom install with Advanced drive tools to format first

Download Seatools and check your HD.
