So, if all else fails, I do a repair...well it goes fine, reboot, Have to set so sees cdrw so can continue setup. Get to installing devices, the keyboard and mouse, and I get a BSOD after a few moments, like 4 min.
I haven't tried safe mode. I'm frustrated and tired of waiting for it to boot up. But I need to do something, what can I do? It's a software hardware issue right? a corrupt driver? Or is it a registry prob. I can't afford to take it somewhere. and would like to do it myself anyway.
