I tried installing win 7 64bit and it installed but took FOREVER then when it reboots and I think I can finally use my computer the mouse and keyboard shut down out of no where so I can't move the mouse anymore or use the keyboard tried a usb and ps/2 keyboard no luck. so then I figured what the hell i'll just install vista ultimate 64 bit. that should work rite and no that didn't work either I just got the BSOD during install and then when it finally did install the computer reboots and I get an error message before the login screen saying that the computer had encountered an error and needs to be restarted so I did that and it just keeps saying the same thing. I burned win 7 multiple times and speeds and nothing works and like I said vista won't even install all the way but when it was installing the files and did do it a whole lot quicker then win 7 did. and on top of that my xbox gave me 3 wonderful happy lights of doom sorry for the rant but if anyone can help me with this I would be greatly appreciated only thing I can think of is my board mite be bad.
Go into BIOS and reset everything to failsafe defaults. #1 reason Windows 7 won't install on homebuilts is "bios tweaking".

damn it. the only requirement is vista or windows 7 (any short name for it yet?). and what do i have?? XP...

just found that it can be done in xp but i cant even do the first step...

diskpart wont open
it opens for a split second then disappears. ive tried starting it from system32.

oppened CMd and typed it in.
i get the message and stuff but underneath it says
The disk management services could not complete the operation.

edit2: mine is version 5.1.3565 not 6.1something...
i guess thats because of XP

edit3: LOL ignore above! i had the disk management service disabled in msconfig.
currently formatting the hard drive ready for the install.

yea seems i got a similar problem, i recently got the Windows 7 RC, i burnt it, booted up, it passed the 'Windows Loading' 'Starting Windows' phases but then freezes on the first screen after which uses a colourful, blue wallpaper and when the mouse cursor appears, i can move the mouse but the cd drive & hard drive have stopped loading. I am currently using XP SP3 and any help would really be appreciated, Thanks.

UPDATE:I read in a few other threads this could be caused by the DVD drive im using, i replaced it and now when it reachs that same screen the mouse cursor shows the loading symbol for 5 seconds but then stops, nothing then seems to happen, i look at my HDD LED and it flashs every 2 seconds with a quik multi flash every 5 single flashs, if that made any sense, i hope you can help, Thanks.

Windows 7 Ultimate RC1 7100

I unplugged everything I could grasp. Including:
2GB of RAM (out of 4GB)
Hauppagge TV Tuner
Keyboard + Mouse (replaced with PS/2)
Second Monitor
Floppy Drive
Memory Card Reader
And disabled anything that I didn't need in the BIOS (USB and 2.0 support)

Installation worked perfectly.
The TV Tuner doesn't work (it caused BSOD in XP also) and many people say that it is very unstable. I guess that was a waste of money. If your install fails try removing any of the above.

Windows 7 seems as though it will take over from XP since for me it has been awesome. One downpoint is that Company Of Heroes won't install properly, I have to use XP to play the game.
