I just put together a computer and am trying to load windows 7 onto it. Everything is brand new and the hard drive is bare, never used. When I turn the machine on everything is working perfect. It runs the POST and I can get into the bios.
The problem is, I have a burned copy of windows 7 because I ordered it online. I am still waiting for the actual cd to come in the mail. So, I put boot from cd-rom first in the boot sequence and restart.
It goes through the POST fine. Next it goes to "loading windows files..." screen and makes it through rather quickly. Once it gets to the next screen, which is "Starting Windows" and it had the windows logo come together all cool looking it freezes every time.
I read through some forums and I saw that other people were having problems loading windows with a burned copy. So I tried to make a USB boot disk using WintoFlash. It seemed to work fine. I used a blank 4GB sony flash drive. It completed transferring all the files and said "All Done".
So, I go back into the bios on my new comp and change the first boot device to [Removable Dev.] and reboot with the flash drive in the USB 3.0. When I do this it just goes to a black screen, does not even run the POST.
Should I just wait for my actual windows 7 cd to come in the mail?
Should I try a different program to make a bootable USB?
The web Mimsa can find serial Windows XP, Vista, Office, etc.. With similar prices. It is 100% reliable, you can pay by PayPal ,Google Checkout and in a moment you send an email with the serial you've asked. (Look in the SPAM folder if you do not find)
I already bought Windows 7 Pro 64bit. I downloaded it on a different computer and burned it onto a CD. The actual Windows 7 Pro 64bit CD should be arriving in the mail in the next few days. I do not need windows, I need to get it working on my new computer.
I think my ram is not compatible with my motherboard. I looked on the qualified vendors list and it has the Mushkin 996657 and 998659(XMP), but not mine, which is the Mushkin 996782.
Alright, I got it to load the Setup and I did the install I think but having BootMGR problem. Will be repairing but loading the setup takes a while for me.
Heres what I did. I just took out one of the memory sticks and left one in there. It seemed to load now. I also would advise you to unplug all unnecessary peripherals like mouse, speakers, ethernet etc etc.
yeah this is a huge problem for me. I've been trying to solve this problem all day now...I only installed Windows 7 after about 20 tries(literally). It would freeze at expanding files 50% 96%..now that I have it installed, I do get into the Desktop but it freezes within 10-15 minutes of use.
Note that the only reason it installed was I used another computer and put the hard drive in to install. after install I took it back out. So cross out CD/DVD Drive or HDD.
I've swapped the PSU, and tested each Memory stick at the a different time and at different slots( i've crashed that many times ).
Yep, these Mushkin memory are crap if you ask me. I had to lower them to 1066mhz. i'm gonna try tweaking the voltages to see if it works but cmon if your gonna advertise at 1333mhz shouldn't it work at that speed?!?! what a waste of 1 1/2 days.
