Turns out to be more difficult installing than I thought. So I have the Windows 7 Professional Upgrade I bought with student discount. Now I am trying to do custom install. The problem is that it stalls at "Completing Installation..." The dots still work. 1 2 3. You know. I tried taking out video card according to: http://www.sevenforums.com/125431-post7.html I tried unplugging all USB device and disabling USB ports in BIOS. I am stumped here. If I attempt to upgrade from disc instead of going into Windows, I get "device drivers not found". I suspect all of this have to do with the ICH9 model. Please help?
