Windows 7 64bit RC

I've been having issues with installing windows and it not getting past the splash screen in the begining after the install is complete. I've created a new partition on my 1tb HD, which is 280gigs , it is Local Drive H, I've tried several installs, and have waitied 30-45 minutes on the splash screen to allow me to finish the set up of windows, but it won't allow me. Any ideas?

afmiller Hello Welcome to Seven Forums. Are you booting from an dvd iso or are youi installing from within vista by running set up .exe. If it is a dual boot can you tell us what you see when you restart your pc. Sorry you are having trouble! lm

booting

I burned the iso to DVD with Nero. I have tried installing it through Vista to the new partition and booting the PC with the disc and trying it that way, both ways have turned out the same, with me being stuck at the splash screen. As for Dual booting, I've never dual booted, i've been looking into it after i get windows 7 RC up and running by itself. I'm not very savy on the whole dual booting, but if your reffering to what I see when I boot, I have the option to choose Windows Vista or Windows 7

- Thanks for helping

wow them some nice specs. Maybe you are having a problem with your defibulator. I know that I sure am! Can't wait to see your WEI score when you get 7 up and running. So you can see widows 7 at boot. mmm have you tried a repair install? By the way is Vista listed first or second in the boot order?

It gets stuck at starting windows, after windows is done with the complete install, and windows 7 is at the top, with vista below

When installing the x64 OSs you commonly need to install the SCHC drivers at install-time if you have your hard drive set to SATA.

Found this on googling for sata drivers. Must be your problem.
NOTE: To install your operating system on a new SATA hard drive you are going to need to provide a SATA drivers disc during the Windows Setup process. This disc is NOT provided by the company you purchased your motherboard from. This is a disc you need to create using the makedisk.exe utility which can usually be found on your motherboard drivers disc or the manufacturers website. If you need more information on how to create this disc, please refer to the detailed instructions below. We will cover how to create an nVidia SATA or VIA SATA drivers disk depending on your chipset. This procedure can be different depending on the brand of motherboard you purchased.] get er done and show us that wei please afmiller huh?

I've never added drivers during the install, I assume the button for have disk when I'm selecting the partition is the button to push to add the drivers
