Windows 7: Terribly long install time? (Ultimate 64bit)

What was the result of the memtest86? What did Kingston say?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I havn't talked to Kingston, since I wasn't sure that the problem really was the RAM-sticks, since they both work, just not at the same time, but it didn't work with 2 other RAM-sticks either. Also, when I was going to burn memtest86 I couldn't find any empty CD at home, so I'll have to buy some before burning it.

Also, am I supposed to do memtest with my current (3gb) RAM or the 4gb I would like to use? Also, on I read that the newest version (experimental SMP version of 3.5) is the only version that supports multiple CPUs, does that include multi-core'd CPUs? If it does, I'm in a bit of trouble, seeing as 3.5 won't work with 4gb or more RAM.

Also, sorry for taking incredible amount of time to complete easy steps like running memtest and all that, other stuff keeps comming in the way.

Run the old memtest86 not the beta version.

Call Kingston either way as they would have already sorted you out on this.

So robinz, did you find a solution to your problem?

I have the same problem (terribly long time), and I read in another forum that FDD disable can solve it.

I'll try tonight when I came home.
