Ok..I have tried religiously for close to a month in installing this OS on my new system with no avail!!!
OS-(I want the OEM copy I bought and paid $200 in an effort to be legit)
CPU- AMD Phenom 9500 Quad Core <---not proud at all and do not recommend
Ram- 2GB 1066Mhz (I think PC8500) DDR2
Video- NVidia GeForce 8800 GTS 512
Ok, I am aware that the motherboard is crossfire and not SLI..sue me ;-) I don't like ATI.
The problem I am having is right after the loading system files screen. It will flicker and go black and nada. Everyone I have told this problem instantly say's video card..wrong. I am using the computer right now with an alternate OS. I know one of my biggest problems is not sticking with Asus, but I wasn't very fond of the selection of AM2+ motherboards they had on the market. The gigabyte was a little more stable.
My question would be, does anyone know a way around this garbage, had the same problems or anything? I realize I am new to this forum..but, this problem has me hitting my head against a wall. Why would a 32 bit OS install and not a 64?
Any help would be appriciated..
