After 9 hours, 8 installs .... please help me.
I have the following configuration:
Asus P6T WS Professional mainboard
Xeon 3520 processor
6 GB ECC ram
Asus EAH4350 videocard (until my 5850 arrives)
X-25-M Postville 80 GB
Sony Optiarc DVDRW (s-ata) drive
Win7 64 Home premium OS
(and WinXP 32 for testing).
The system is working nicely, and Win-xp installs without any problems.
If I install Win7 64 the system hangs on the final (?) reboot. Sometimes it reboots, sometimes it gives a blue screen. It gives the rotating balls and quits on me.
Safe mode is not possible, because the setup has not finished yet. If I move the mouse over the screen, it changes to a "text insert"shape in the middle of the screen, as it there is a window there with a message (I can't see the message...). Some flashing of the drive activity led, like a heartbeat (or maybe I'm going crazy, it's 3 am)
I have followed these steps (http://communities.intel.com/message/76641#76641):
But it did not help. The system partitions are created, but the problems did not go away.
I tried all three controller options (IDE, RAID, IHCI), and did a full re-install. But it did not help.
I disabled the SAS controller, but it did not help.
I updated the SSD firmware, but it did not help.
I updated the mainboard firmware, but it did not help.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
