So I just finished a build, have not built a computer for about 5 years but I know quite a bit.

I am installing Windows 7 from a cd as an ISO file after using ImgBurn
I have used many windows ISO files and installed from a CD. I am using a Windows XP ISO instillation right now.

Here is my problem,
I have gotten through 75% of the installation. Past the part where you select which drive you are installing, I am putting the OS on my SSD and currently have XP on my hard drive just so I could use the Internet to do research.

I get to the Updating Registry settings part, Windows restarts and continues to go to a black screen which asks me if i want to run in safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, last know good configuration everything I select it continues to do the same thing over and over.

I have disconnected the HD so its only booting from the SSD I have changed the settings in BIOS to boot from the SSD
I have tried to BOOT from a USB flash drive nothing I do will work and I have spent about 8 hours in the last 2 days trying to figure this out....
I know the computer is fine because I had a burned ISO of windows XP and that installed and is running fine.

I believe the problem is Windows 7 is not fully installing... Not that it is installed and wont run properly


If anyone can help at all I'd really appreciate it. Hopefully I have given enough information to narrow down the problems.


if anyone needs build information

Phenom 965 BE 3.4
212 hyper evo
gigabyte 990fx ud3
gskill 1886mhz 8gb DDR3
( I have not adjusted the settings in BIOS and as of now it only reads it as 1600mhz, I want to get the operating system installed before I mess with overclocking but this could be an issue? I'm not sure)
1tb HD

I have already tested my ram but I'll try that. What is slipstreaming the graphics driver?
