Stuck at "Windows is loading files...." Screen for About an Hour
I just got a custom PC assembled and got it home today with Windows Vista
Home Premium Edition. It had no OS previously. When I try to boot from the
DVD the progress bar under "Windows is loading files...." freezes at various
spots (I tried doing it over several times and it always stops at a different
spot). Does anybody know what I should do?

Hi,

If you got it locally bring it back to the shop. If you ordered it online
and it was preassembled, you may need to open the case. It sounds to me like
a component is either faulty or not fully seated, it may have come loose
during transportation. Check especially the data cables as well as any added
cards.

Re: Stuck at "Windows is loading files...." Screen for About an Hour

Hello, I recently built a computer ground-up from scratch.
EVGA X58 Classified mobo
Core i7 965
2 GB x 3 Corsair ram
2 Western Digital 1tb hdd
LG Superdrive with HD DVD and BD DVD
EVGA 295 GTX
Creative Titanium X-Fi Sound Card

I try to run the Windows Vista 64-bit install and Windows is loading
files... pops up and the progress bar will freeze at random spots when
it looks like the drive is reading the disc because the drive light
continues flashing.
