Hello, earlier my friend and I were building him a new computer. We hooked everything up correctly, and we had just finished installing windows 7. It reboots and then it just hangs at starting windows and the little windows icon is still moving and glowing, but it just sits there doing nothing. We restart, and then we get the Windows Error Recovery menu, then that doesn't even load all the way, it just hangs again. We've tried unplugging everything that wasn't nescessary, we've done another clean install, switched sata ports/wires. It just baffled me that it lets us install but won't let us start the OS.
Is there any solution or quick fix, thanks in advanced!
Have you tried to change the boot priority setting in the bios after installation?
If you still have it set to DVD drive, you need to change it to boot drive (SSD or HDD, wherever you installed Win 7) after the first reboot when installation is complete. Also, during the 15 seconds to restart phase, remove the installation DVD.
If that doesn't work, it's probable that the boot drive is busted.
