I'm having some trouble installing Windows 7. I need to install the OS from boot in order to split my C: into two different partitions, as this is not allowed when installing from inside Vista.
When I boot up from the install disc, I get the usual "Windows is copying files..."-screen, shortly followed by the "Starting Windows..."-screen with the animated window-logo or whatever. Then it looks as if the installation is about to begin with a blue screen and a cursor I can move around, but here it all stops. Nothing more happens, and the setup seems to hang. Not a single key on my keyboard has any effect, and all I am left to do is to abort and reboot.
I've tried to install using two different DVDs (not clones), and the same thing happens every time. What may be causing this, and how may I fix it?
Some of my hardware specs are as follows:
Motherboard: Asus P5E X38
CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E6850 3.0 Ghz
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit
Keyboard: Logitech diNovo Edge
.. need more?
And yes, I can still move my mouse around on the blue-ish screen, but I have not waited more than 10 minutes before giving up (gonna try waiting longer).
And no, I have not asked Microsoft.
And I have no idea how to reset the BIOS-settings.
