I disabled the marvel controller and it worked perfectly.

So much for sitting here for the past 5 hours trying to find a fix for it -_-

Now I just need to figure out why there's a blinking white underscore before it boots and not the full logo like I have it set to show =/.

My last install on this SSD ended up with there being a weird line of like blue dotted stuff at the top before it would boot. Hope it's not like that this time.

And it seems like expanding windows files should go a lot fast that I have an i5 instead of a dual core now, it's still going the same speed -_-.

The blue lines are when you disable the boot GUI.

The single white blinking line is when your PC is finding the OS.

The multiple white lines is when you configured your system with the GPT guide and the Windows boot manager is searching for the proper partition to boot from.

Ah. BTW, why does it have a green bar for the boot logo instead of the Windows 7 logo? Is that because I have a Upgrade edition of it or what?

Maybe. After the install does it still have the green bar? Or the laminating Windows symbol?
post #2017 of 5384
Still has the green bar after installing. Not that big of a deal, but be nice to know why it puts that one instead of the win7 logo.

I like that "Laminating Windows Logo"...

Expanding files during install does a lot more than what you see in the progress bar. The installer at that point is also looking at your system hardware. If you listen closely, you'll hear your DVD drive "click/read" small files during the process. The DVD drive slows this process, so it is not solely dependant on your CPU.

I'm saving files directly to the HDD, but they are not taking up any space. After installing the OS onto the SSD, I reconnected the hard drive and reformatted it. Maybe something went wrong between those two steps?
