I was having issues installing Windows 7 64bit Home Premium OEM (see my other question).
To make absolutely sure it didn't have anything to do with my CD/DVD drive, I made a bootable USB from my CD using EasyBCD. I set the BIOS to boot from USB devices first, then boot with the USB in: it works fine, asks for language, unpacks etc.
When it automatically reboots, the USB kicks in again and starts the installation process anew, so I shut down, remove USB and reboot. The installation continues just fine, but when it reboots again, the Windows logo comes up for a while, then the screen just goes black (no signal, it says)!
The PC is actually still on. I can force shut down and reboot, and I get the 'windows did not shut down properly bla bla' menu, I select 'start windows normally' and I have the same problem.
What could possibly be wrong?
This is the hardware:
- Intel DP35DP Motherboard
- Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU
- AMD Radeon HD 4650 GPU
- 6GB DDR2 RAM
- 4GB USB stick
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
