Windows 7: Install hangs with black screen and watermark only

06 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Profesional 32-bit (6.1, Build 7600) RTM - TechNet
Install hangs with black screen and watermark only

As the title explains, I have a new HTPC I built with the following equipment.

Motherboard: Intel DG45ID Socket 775 Motherboard
CPU: Intel Pentium Dual Core E2200 2.2Gh
Memory: Kingston 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz (2x2048)

I have a 500gb with three primary partitions

100gb XP Pro
100gb (for win 7)
rest for data

Using a booting USB and selecting clean install, the install completes mostly, it reboots a few times like normal. When it should be time to enter the key, the screen is completely black *except* for the Windows 7 watermark.

Are there any known issues with this board and the on-board graphics chip?

Can anybody recommend a HDMI card to drive my Plasma Display that has good 7 support?

Thanks !
