  1. may not have installed correctly, did you reformat before you installed or was it an upgrade?
  2. I know this is a really late reply, but it seems that this is happening with many other people. x86 or x64, a fresh install of Windows 7 on these machines will always result in this happening ... and only Windows 7. If there's a BIOS that solves this problem, or something like that, that would definitely help.
  3. I got exactly the same problem om a ACER aspire.
    I have tried reinstalling WIN7 severaltimes, after deletting the partitions on HD. Formatting the HD, but hangs same place.
    But then I installed on same HD, but on another PC and then WIN7 started, on this PC. But when moving the HD to the ACER - same problem.
    Then I tried to repair the MBR with EasyDCD, but same problem...
    I think it has something to do with the BIOS. But since I cannot start windows I cannot flash the BIOS :-(
  4. same problem... did anybody try to flash BIOS from XP ore Vista, and then install win 7? what kind of BIOS update will let to install Win7???
