Am trying to install windows 7 (64 Bit). It starts the procedure, gets to 'SETUP IS STARTING' - asks where to load too, (have set the partion to 'system' as opposed to 'logical' (is that correct))? Then goes to 'INSTALLING WINDOWS' and thro' the 5 phases ending up at COMPLETING INSTALLATION. It then reboots and asks you to hit any key to boot from CD and starts the whole process again. When I halted the process and made the system boot from the hard drive it just went to a black screen/flashing cursor although the HDD shows that there is data on it. I have left the Mobo at it's intial state and not changed anything apart from the boot priority, to start the download and then to try and boot up.

Note: At no stage do I enter the 'key code' though I presume that would be when I actually get the system up and running?







Mobo Aus M4A78TE
CPU AMD Phenom II 955 X4
300 gb HDD
Onboard Mobo graphics

I think I have listed all the relevant info.

At the moment I am at a loss where to go next? Appreciate any advice.

Thanks - George
