hello, im trying to install windows 7 64 bit on my custom built rig, and to make a long story short,it never completes.
heres the build:
msi 880gm e43 mobo
amd x2 555
4gb ddr3 ram
when i boot from the dvd it always hangs on the blank blue wallpaper, from there i had to eject the disk and pop it back in to continue. once it did that it got stuck at the select driver to load screen, and from there im stumped.
after that i tried just restarting the computer (it was running xp 64 bit) and tried installing from there, it seemed like it was going good (got past the select driver screen) but then it just freezes at completing installation. so i restarted the computer and xp is gone. i now have an unfinished install of windows 7. i cant start my computer it says "the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error.windows installation cannot proceed. to install windows click ok to restart and then restart the installation.
The causes can be a bad Hard disk with errors on it, bad sectors that have not been flagged as bad by doing a scan disk, or it can relate to bad memory in the system.
I take it you are using an origonal windows 7 disk, or did you buy and download it as an Iso image to burn to a Dvd-r disc, if so lower the burn speed to reduce errors occuring when burning the Windows Iso. Image to a Dvd-R, alot of burns fail for example if you try to burn the image to fast causing errors when reading the disk.
