Windows 7 Fresh Install on Newly Built Machine


I have recently had some problems with my PC

I needed to upgrade anyway, so I bought a new motherboard, new SATA HDD and a new copy of Windows 7 Home Premium.

I had problems with th initial install, it started hanging three quarters of the way through, I checked online and found that if I disconnected all USB connections it installed fine.

Now installed it won't load up correctly, or if it does it crashes almost straight away, it runs fine in safe mode, but I can't use Windows Update in safe mode :(

Rather than reinstall again I thought I'd check on here to see if there is something obvious I'm doing wrong?

I've got the feeling the problem may relate to the build rather than the software, but wanted to check if anyone had experienced similar problems?


Matt :)
