Hello,
I have an E6600, Intel Dp965lt mobo, 4 gig ddr2 800 Kingston. I've read about people waiting over 24 hrs to install Win 7. No way I'm prepared to do that. My I've left install for over 1 hr without progress so somethings wrong. Any ideas ?

Where is it slowing down?

Only time I've had issues with installing windows was when the HSF wasn't fully on due to a broken clip so the CPU throttled way down. There was also an OS that had issues installing with 4GBs. I think it was vista as I have 4GB and had no problems installing win7. Check your temps/HSF, and perhaps try pulling a stick or two if you have 1GB sticks. You can safely add it back once win7 is installed.

run memtest from your windows 7 installation dvd (click on repair, then on the 1st option (not sure what it says), click next and you should have a set of utilities on that screen including memory test

if it passes with no errors then your hdd has bad sectors most likely

??? You don't run it from windows. You run it from the disk at boot up.
