I have trouble installing Windows 7

  1. 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?

    I'm glad I keep finding solutions to my own problems.


    It turns out I was being impatience. I waited 1 hour and was wondering. I was like *shrug* and went to bed. 4-5 hours later, poof it worked.

    there are MANY graphics driver issues with windows 7. run windows 7 upgrade advisor to see if your computer is upgradable. I could not put 7 on BOTH of my computers at the house. Both desktop (raid driver issues) and my laptop (graphics card drivers lacking).
    I wasted $100 for nothing. Too bad, 7 does run faster than XP.
