on my home computer I'm having a issue with installing the x64 version of Windows 7. At the moment I'm already running the x86 version, witch is running fine. But, as I now have 6gb of RAM I'd like to upgrade to the x64 version.
This is what I've done.
Inserted the disc, started the computer, booted from disk.
Then the install starts, I create a partition and formatted the harddrive, and started the install.
The install goes fine, copying the files, untill it reboots the computer.
The computer reboots, the windows logo comes up, and a few seconds later: BSOD + instant reset PC, I can't even read the BSOD....
I've tried to boot it in Safemode and it hinges on disk.sys... then BSOD and reset again...
I've tried the following :
Disconnected all USB hardware attached except for my keyboard
Disconnected all IDE/SATA drives except the one i'm installing on
Tried installing W7 on the SATA drive without any other IDE's connected aswell
Switched the RAM modules, only put in a 2GB
And now...I'm a bit stuck
I've read all over the internet to similar problems, but I can't find any solutions, the one person that did find a solution to his problem (and changed ALL other hardware 1 by 1 before, but didnt work) changed his processor...(see entire topic : http://www.sevenforums.com/ins...4-bit-version-4.html)
So is there some CPU incompatibilty with Win7 64bit ?
