Getting an OS to actually install. Please Help.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, I recently thew together a server with an i7 860, 5450(no onboard video) an Asus p55 motherboard, and a WD Blue 160GB. For some reason when I attempt to install Windows it hangs at the loading screen right after it says "windows is loading files". I have tried multiple HDDs with no results, and I have attempted to install different OSs with the same results of hanging right after initiating the OS installation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

First,clean the disc,make sure that it's not scratched.Usually,if it's not loading files,then it might be the disc itself.

i had a similar experience with an asus board and windows 7. what i had to do is to remove any usb device during installation and that enabled me to install windows properly.

Memory problem? Try running memtest86 on it. I've had problems loading and starting windows where it hung while keeping the screen displayed indefinitely due to bad/unstable memory.

that was my other thought, I'll switch around the dimms & configs or try running one stick @ a time if it passes memtest.
