having trouble loading windows 7

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Assembled a new computer yesterday. Today I got ready to install the OS, but I am having problems. When it goes to boot from the DVD it just sits at the loading OS screen. I can tell it is not going anywhere. The mobo is a ga 268xp-ud3 so I am using gigabytes BIOS. I set the DVD drive to first priority, but still no luck. I used a sata III cable for the drive (since it was all I had) but the bios seems to recognize the drive okay.

Open to any suggestions. Not sure if maybe the drive is DOA? doesn't seem to likely it opens up and I can here the disk begin to spin. BTW I tried three different ISO Discs Thanks in advance, you guys are lifesavers.

What part of the install does it actually freeze on?
What you mean the loading os screen?

Are you installing on a fresh HDD or installing over a previous windows copy?

It is a fresh install, never been anything on the computer before this.

It doesn't even start the install, it just sits at the very first part of the load os screen (normally that part just flashes past as it loads the os)

so frustrated, tried everything I could think of, switching sata ports for hard drive and DVD drive, tried different hard drive tried different DVD, totally stumped. Tried EFI tried non EFI, tried auto. Set boot disc priority to the DVD drive, I am just somewhat stumped by this. I am looking through all the old threads here seeing if someone else has had this issue

Grabbed another SSD today and when I got done it booted and loaded fine, go figure.
