Windows 7: black screen after first setup restart

15 Dec 2009   #11

XP Pro 32bit

I have installed win7 ultimate 32bit on another computer successfully. This leads me to believe that my primary computer hardware is the cause. I think it's the bios settings... I have Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H (latest bios using its @Bios program to update) and AMD Athlon II X2 245. 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800 and GeForce 8800GT 512MB. If needed, I can tell my bios settings... any help? Thanks!

Sounds like you have a failed dual boot with XP messing with your Win7 boot.

Need to see your Disk management drive map and EasyBCD listings screenshot before we can advise, but nothing requested has been posted back nor have suggestions been responded to.

Perhaps you can directly tell us what you wish to achieve rather than our having to guess?
