Windows 7: Windows 7 fresh install, incredibly slow and 100% CPU usage

Tyzurail:

I'd probably start a new thread, but check these things:

Do you get the same result if you change motherboard ports?

Do you get the same results if you change both cables on the SSD?

Do you get the same results with only minimum hardware installed (1 RAM stick, DVD drive, SSD)?

Are you dealing with a retail Windows DVD or a burned disc?

Yes, i've popped the SSD into 3 of my 5 different ports. The one SATA 1 port works for a fact because i can still run my other harddrive on that with no problems

I just changed the SATA cable (with the one from my other HDD) and the power slot. Similar results, but it seems a bit faster that last night. Still unusable by any means. I havent tried going down to 1 RAM stick, sporting 8 gig and its been working fine otherwise, not against giving it a go though.

I have a retail version, upgrade Win 7 disk.

I'd strip down to 1 stick of RAM. Maybe try it with stick 1 and then stick 2. Using various RAM slots.

You might try a "clean" command from Diskpart to wipe the SSD. You could do a "clean all", but that might take a half hour.

Alright, i went back and followed SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation with your suggestion of using the clean all.

It seemed to work, the installation went through the entire extration phase before even thinking about rebooting, (before it would reboot at 20% every time and then come back and finish itself up.) It seemed to be moving smooth and great, until the first restart, then when it got to the options to name the computer and select time zone etc... it starting again. Would this have something to do with the system reserved partition?

As of this current go round, i did not create a separate system reserved partition. Which leads me to think that the system is detecting the other system reserved (from my HDD, which is at 70/100 meg full) and may be trying to attach itself?!?

I'm going to punch out for the night. I may not get the opportunity to get back to it until this weekend. Let me know what you think please.

Correction, there is 70 mb free on the system reserved. Grr. Even then, this go round i still dont see the system reserved for this SSD, but the HDD listed. I'll have to go back to square one and ensure i get that in there. At least the windows will install from boot rather than having to initiate from my other windows HDD this time, so i should be able to completely unplug it for the next install. I'm sure that will help. Knock on wood.

I would not think so.

You should have only ONE drive connected when you begin the install. That way, Windows cannot see any other System Reserved that may be floating around on some other hard drive.

System Reserved is totally optional and not needed unless you are going to use BitLocker. I have never used System Reserved. Disconnect the HDD and try again. By default, you should get a System Reserved on the SSD, but that is avoidable.
