Windows 7: Not installing

25 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate RTM
Not installing


My custom built PC has been running Windows Vista x86 for a couple of years no problems. Recently tried to upgrade to Windows 7 x86 but something very weird is happening.

Basically, I done a clean install and on completion of the installation it reboots OK, but then never gets to the part where it asks for username, computer name etc.

If I just leave it it eventually shuts down. On powering it back up it says it's resuming from hybernation.

I've tried 3 or 4 times now with the same thing. Vista/XP etc install and work fine so it's definately Windows 7 (or one of it's bundled drivers) at fault.

Any ideas?

First off, you would have gotten the same result upgrading instead of doing a clean install, but I digress.

What IS happening when it reboots? What do you see, hear, smell, taste? Details!
