Setup Freezes After Windows Is Loading Files

May 27, 2009

I've been trying to install Windows 7 for days now...with no luck at all so far...and I'm getting quiet frustrated as you can imagine.

The installation always stops after the installer loads the files, screen freezes on the windows logo, and the progress bar stops immediately stops moving (or it freezes even before the logo is even fully displayed). The DVD then stops and no matter how long I wait nothing happens from there. If I run the text mode install, it stops on disk.sys.

I've looked everywhere on the net and tried many things:

unplugged anything not necessary during install (all usb, got rid of sound card, tried another graphic card, removed ram, switched ram position)

cleared cmos, no change

bios: disabled all unecessary (floppy (I don't use any) enabled/disabled parallel/serial port (for some it was a fix on other mobo's...or so I have read), messed around with lots of settings

tried other DVD drive, burned another DVD.

Now this issue isn't new to me, since I have never been able to install vista either. xp and ubuntu gave me a lot of problems too, but with xp pressing F7 during the initial loading would solve the issue and the install would run fine, on ubuntu adding no acpi would also allow install. With vista and windows 7 setup, pressing F7 during the file load doesn't apparently work, and I don't know how to bypass the acpi check.

If I try to run the install within xp, I get a compatibility report saying that my computer isn't acpi compatible...while the k7s8x bios clearly says it is. I tried enabling/disabling the acpi in the bios and it makes no difference (my bios is the last available, the 2.60)

I have seen people asking for k7s8x lan drivers for windows 7 on this forum, so I guess it is possible to install vista/windows 7 on this mobo after all.

Any suggestions welcome, as I'm completely out of ideas now!

Windows 7 Freezes After Loading Files?

Jun 17, 2011

I just put this computer together (check out my specs) and put the OS DVD in to install. It goes through the motions of "loading files" and then when it says "starting windows" it gets just to the point where you can see all 4 colored orbs and it freezes.How do I fix this issue and install windows 64bit?

Windows 7 Cdusb Freezes While Loading Files-booting?

Aug 9, 2009

Windows 7 started to hang on loading screen, just before colored balls show up. So I put in windows 7 cd, made sure boot order was correct in bios, attempted to run repair, but cd loads to a black screen. So i make a bootable usb for win 7 try the same thing but it gets stuck at windows loading files. So I make a recovery cd on another computer with win7 as OS. Same problem. So I do memtest, surface test, everything checks out fine.

This whole time ubuntu will boot fine (Ive had dual boot working fine for over a year). I use ubuntu to get all the files I need of the host machine and use mini tools partition wizard to wipe the hdd thinking maybe i need a fresh install of win7. Same problem persists with failure of cd and usb of win 7. Trying a bootable usb of ubuntu, it works no problem, OS boots everything, flawless.

I continue to try to get windows working because i need it to remote in for work. On oddity is that if it the first time i boot the computer for the day the windows cd boots and i can install the OS but on the first restart it hangs at the same spot as above. This screams power supply issue, so I wipe the hdd again and swap in a new psu. Windows cd boots, installs, loads fine. I install chrome, steam, quicken, rename the computer which requires restart! and then it fails at the same spot. In retrospect I should have used to good boot to install chipset drivers, unfortunately i am yet to be able to get back into the OS via any means. Other things I have tried:

-Boot to cd with HDD disconnected.

-Boot to usb with dvd disconnected.

-Update Bios to latest version.

-Wipe the hdd with minitools, turn off computer, take battery out of mobo to reset cmos. Still no dice.

My problem with all of this is that the whole time ubuntu can install and works fine. I want this to be a hardware issue, but i can't figure it out. Only thing i can figure is its chipset drivers? But I need to be able to install the OS to run the asus installer.

Setup Hangs After "Windows Is Loading Files..."?

Jun 29, 2010

I have a freshly built computer. All new internal parts (HD, DVD drive, MoBo, video card, processor, PSU, RAM and case). Here is a list of all the parts that are in it:Newegg.com - Once You Know, You NeweggI also have a fresh copy of Windows 7 OEM.All parts are plugged in properly, and bios set up correctly (as far as I can tell). The only bios that aren't at default that I can remember off the top of my head was that I disabled the floppy section (don't have one), I raised the clock speed of my CPU to 2.8 (up from 2.66), and I enabled my CPU to raise 9-11% capacity under heavy loads.verything saved properly, and my CPU runs at roughly 35 degrees C. Not nearly as cool as my old rig but not that bad. The default settings had it running half a degree cooler.

Opened up the 7 case, popped it in, booted from CD-ROM, and a black screen comes up and says "Windows is loading files..." A bar fills up really fast, and after it finishes it resets and starts filling up again, much slower. Once this bar fills up however, the computer hangs and sits there. I've let it sit for over 10 minutes with no change. The only notable thing that happens is about 30 seconds after it fills the bar the DVD drive has some activity, and then it goes silent for the rest of the time.

Installation Freezes After "Windows 7 Is Loading Files"?

Jul 31, 2010

I recently finished building my custom pc, and tried installing Windows 7 Home Premium on it. I got to where it says "Windos is loading files", the white bar filled up, then it would repeat but slower. So far so good, but then it took me to the screen with the background, where one would normally log in to a user account, but it was completely blank, except for the cursor. So I rebooted the PC and tried reistalling it, and then after the "Windows is loading files" screens, it just gave me a blank black screen with only the cursor visable. I tried this several times but always got the same result. Now, i just the blue screen of death.When i don't boot from the CDROM, my computer freezes at "Verifying DMI Pool Data....." I tried resetting my CMOS, but that didn't change anything, so i'm pretty sure I'm getting that message because there's no operating system because Windows 7 won't seem to finish its installation. The HDD i bought said it came prepared for Windows 7 so there shouldn't have to be any formatting or whatnot done. I am thoroughly perplexed

Install From DVD Freezes On "Windows Is Loading Files"

Sep 19, 2012

Computer is a couple years old, self built, no issues. Watching hulu and suddenly there's a crackling sound, a flash of light, and screen freezes (not bsod, just total freeze). No biggie, reboot. Won't reboot. Get's to "Starting Windows" and freezes.

Figured it's a ram or hard drive issue. Long story short, quick trip to Fry's, put in brand new hard drive & one stick of brand new ram (completely took out old ram and old hard drives). Took out wireless card, unplugged all usb, except for new usb (wired) keyboard.

Put in Window's installation DVD, boot from CDRom, it gets to "Windows is loading files" and about the third time it completes a status bar, it freezes there. I've rebooted a few times, same issue. Swapped out the one new ram for the second stick that came in the pack, same thing.

So...not hard drive, not ram, not wireless card, not any usb thingy plugged in, system temps have been fine lately. Based on the sudden noise/flash seems like a hardware thing, but can't pinpoint.

System Specs: Antec case, corsair 750W power supply, Gigabit UDP3 motherboard, intel i5-750, evga GeForce GTX260 vid card, and as of tonight a corsair 4gb ddr3 1333x ram, and wd caviar green 1tb hard drive.

I'm going to try to take out the video card (pita) in the mean time.

Windows 7 Installation On XP Hard Drive Freezes When Loading Bar Gets Half Full

May 18, 2012

I just turned on an almost new build pc to install windows 7. The entire pc is a new build except the hard drive that has a good copy of xp installed. I am trying to install a new copy of windows 7 on the hard drive. So I turned the pc on and go into the bios to set the DVD to boot first. So windows starts to install and the window is loading bar comes up. After the bar gets over half full, the screen drops and there is a line of h's on the left side of the screen and the installation freezes.

Computer Freezes When Loading 7 News

Mar 5, 2011

my laptop belonged to my brother and had very little use, he gave it to me and i put norton security on it, whenever i load a site with a few pictures it freezes and a message on the bottom of the screen says loading an ad (not always the same one, a few different ones). i don't use the computer a lot, mainly i like to check the news (used to anyway) but now it just freezes and i cant click on anything. sometimes if i start it up and shut it down a few times it does work but this is very time consuming. also ebay does not work, just freezes when i click on a picture. strangely enough my son likes Internet and this works perfectly, you can view videos with no interruptions.

Installation Freezes When Finishes Loading The Dvd

Oct 22, 2009

I just got a copy of windows 7(64-bit ultimate, because its from my college its the upgrade version) and I'm having some install troubles. The installation keeps freezing right when it finishes loading the dvd.

Currently on windows xp. We know the dvd works (tried it in a different computer) and the dvd drive in this system works (tried using different operating systems). I can move the mouse around, and no keyboard shortcuts appear to work. I had the windows 7 beta installed a ways back, so I know the OS works on this system.

Windows 7 Recovery On HP Touchsmart Tm2t-2100 CTO Setup Freezes Check AC?

Aug 5, 2012

It is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit application. June 2012 it crashed. Since I am a teacher, I needed my laptop to recover quickly. The system would not recognize my recovery disks so I had to order disks from HP. The disks arrived but when I began to rebuild the tablet I killed the process at 12 hours because it seemed ridiculously long. ( My prior career I was a system project manager...so I am no strager to computers and software installations.) My quick solution was installing Windows 7 Home premium and then downloading the custom installtions for my HP tablet off the HP site. This was required to finish the school year. July 2012 I began attempting to rebuild my laptop correctly. I found, through HP forums, their installtions take 16 hours before you get to the windows setup screens. In the midst of this process my battery also seems to have completely died.I have tested that it is the battery: AC Power glows steady white when battery is removed and system boots.

Put the battery back in and the light blinks orange the whole time. Battery test shows it cannot recognize a battery. So....when I tried to install the first time with battery still in, 16 hours later HP recovey processed, and Windows setup began. It made it through preparing software installation, installing software, customizing software, and stopped at "Checking AC Power." The second time.....I tried to install I removed the dead battery.This allowed the power led to stop blinking orange and be steady white glow. For this test the system made it through preparing, and installing, but hung at customizing software.Third try now....battery back in hangs again at Checking AC Power. It has been here for 8 hours. The HP site also indicates that the WIFI radio needs to be on for installation. Mine is and glows white.

Any remedies for how to complete the installation, through checking ac power where it is hanging, and then initate and complete the installtion verification would be great! While I can install my full clean version of Windows 7, it would be preferential to install with the HP customizations specific to this laptop.Here is a link to the customer forum for the inordiantely long recovery process on the HP side: Installing from HP Recovery CD,nstallation freezes at %12 - Page 11 - HP Support Forum

Windows Is Loading Files

Oct 3, 2011

I have read a lot on this getting stuck. I had an issue with it getting stuck, so I had HP to send me the recovery disks and I backed everything up and did a clean install. It did its thing and now it is at the Windows is loading files screen. Bad news is, it has been on this screen since last night at around 8:00 (12 hrs), Good news is, it has been moving. I put a sticky note on the progress bar, even this morning it has moved about a half an inch. Should I be worried or just patient? It said it may take up to 3 hours and it has been 12 hours.

'Windows Is Loading Files' And Get Stuck

Aug 13, 2011

My computer would start to boot up"Windows is loading files" and get stuck. I would have to do a hard shut down after it sticks there for an hour. Anyhow, it would eventually boot up, all though one time I got a BSOD Stop: 21C error.For the past 3 days, no sound is coming out of my speakers. All of a sudden it is coming out of my HDMI monitor instead, I went and bought new speakers because I thought they had died. It is still doing it though. Even if I plug headphones in the front jack, I get nothing.

Setup Freezes During Install

Aug 30, 2010

Ok, I tried to install Windows 7 a while back, and it would freeze every time during 'expanding files' section. I also run into similar problems when it comes to installing Vista. I've gotten Vista to install maybe 2 times and both times it ran fine for a little then it refused to boot (not sure where in the process anymore).I checked the Windows Vista / 7 compatibility guide on Microsoft's page and everything i have SHOULD work, so I'm not thinking its hardware issues.I read another post on these forums that had someone saying it worked when they swapped out the dvds when it froze. I don't believe its the disc either, because both Vista and 7 had no problems installing on other computers that i tested it on. Running a Virtualbox with 768mb RAM assigned to it installed flawlessly as well.Why does my install keep freezing on the machine I plan to activate Windows with, but not on any other?

Cannot Reinstall Fresh Windows 7 - Computer Restarts When Loading Files

Nov 22, 2011

I am attempting to install a fresh copy of Windows 7 on my laptop and am having multiple problems.The HDD is formatted completely empty.

1. When attempting to use the Reinstallation DVD from Dell, the DVD boots and the progress bar moves that says "Windows is loading files," then the computer restarts and it is stuck in an infinite loop.
2. When attempting to use a copy of Windows 7 on a USB drive, the drive boots up until you see the cursor to begin the reinstallation process, then the computer restarts and it is stuck in an infinite loop.
3. When attempting to use a Windows XP DVD, it starts the setup process, and then I get error: STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF78D2524, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

I have been able to boot command line Linux distros (haven't tried any graphical distros) without any problems. Dell instructed me to run diagnostics on everything, and everything passed, so it doesn't seem like there are any apparent hardware issues. I tried pulling the battery and just using the power cord and also removing one of the sticks of RAM and attempting installation, but I have the same problems.

Specs:
Dell Inspiron 1545 (Late 2010)
Windows 7 Home Premium

Whenever Try To Install A Game Or Program / Setup Process Freezes At Random Intervals

whenever I try to install a game or program (happens more often for games), the setup process freezes at random intervals.

Clean Windows 7 Install-loading Files To Scrolling Progress Bar To Blank Desktop W/cursor?

May 5, 2010

When I try to do a clean install of Windows 7 I get the loading files white progress bar you normally get during an installation, it then goes directly to the scrolling progress bar that would normally appear before a Windows startup, and then goes to a blank Windows 7 desktop with only a cursor (that I can move).I have a computer with the following specs:[CODE]I have tried to install with every version I can get my hands on, both 32 and 64 bit. None of them are upgrade versions. I've tried installing on a fresh WD Raptor and an Intel G25 SSD. All other drives have been disconnected. I've moved my memory around and tried with one stick. My mainboard has the latest official BIOS, although there is a new beta.

I ran the Windows 7 compatibility test and didn't see anything that would cause this problem.I have searched the internet and have not been able to find a solution sonstalling Windows XP has never been a problem, just Windows 7, always with the same problem.This is one of the few times when I have not been able to look around a find an existing answer to a problem and I am stumped.

Certain Programs Loading Files Very Slowly

Mar 2, 2012

I was recently having some bad video driver issues (getting frequent BSODs after updating to the latest drivers for my 560 Ti), so I did a system restore. After the restore, I'm not having any problems with that, but a new one has popped up: opening any photo or video file in Windows Photo Viewer, VLC, or MPC-HC takes a while. There's a 10-15 second delay. In the case of Windows Photo Viewer, it doesn't open the program until then. With VLC and MPC-HC, the program opens but it takes that long to load the file. I've tried this on two separate hard drives, and opening the files with other programs (such as opening a local image file using Chrome) doesn't have the same delay. I've rebooted my computer several times, rebuilt my icon cache (which has fixed some similar bugs for me before), and checked that I didn't have an issue with color calibration (which reportedly slows down Windows Photo Viewer). Scanning with MSE turned up nothing. I can't do a system restore to any other point since this was the only one before I installed the new video card drivers that gave me even worse trouble.

New System, Windows Stops At Windows 7 Is Loading Files

Jan 1, 2012

I've recently built a new system from scratch, I can verify all the connectors are plugged in correctly and powered. Today I went out and bought a small internal 24x dvd drive to install my copy of windows 7 home premium OEM with and this is where my problems began. Whenever I set the dvd drive as the first boot option and put the OEM disc inside it, the screen stays black and does a Windows is Loading files bar across my screen I believe twice at varying speeds then disappears and leaves me with nothing but a black screen. I've waited and have it still sitting there blank at this very moment. I have done a lot of googling and only seen one other person with this same issue have his problem solved by resetting his BIOS to default. Needless to say this didn't work. I've tried changing all the storage settings from AHCI to IDE to RAID and disabling/enabling some setting in each with no luck. Below are the system specs.

Motherboard: ASrock gen3 extreme3 Z68 chipset
CPU: i5 2500k 3.30Ghz
GPU: AMD Radeon 6950 came factory set to 870 Mhz core clock (overclocked from 800)
RAM: 4x4 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 Mhz (I've also checked to make sure the proper voltage and frequency was used on these in the BIOS)
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 120GB
PSU: Coolermaster 1000W
Optical Drive: 24x Multiformat DVD/CD Writer with the obvious Sata connections to hook up to my mobo

This is my first pc build and I assume that asrock mobo's version of BIOS is UEFI.

Edit : I've tried removing 3 of my RAM sticks and now it just freezes with the grey bar fully loaded on Windows is Loading files. I then tried loading my old windows XP CD and it was working until it hit a BSOD which occurs consistently if I try to load XP. On more attempts at loading windows 7 it gets past the grey bar stage to the black screen not loading anything stage again.

System Prompt After Boot Up - DLL Files Not Loading

Mar 10, 2011

Just after booting-up my system is prompting me that two dll files are not loading. I have investigated the necessity of the dll files and they have no relevance to the OS or anything I am using. How would I stop the system from attempting to load these files?

Install Freezes On 0% Of Expanding Windows Files

Dec 29, 2009

I'm trying to install Windows 7 on my mom's laptop. I got to the custom install and I selected the HDD. I pressed the button for additional options and clicked format.After about 4-5 seconds it said it has been formated (although it seemed a little bit too quickly for me) and I continued to install. It gets to the install screen and shows "Copying Windows Files 0%...". It quickly and somehow, without showing 100% done "skips" the step giving it a tick and moves to expanding the files. Expanding stays on 0% and nothing else. No indication of the DVD reading, no indication of the HDD writing. It just stays like that and...

NOTHING!!! This Windows 7 is from a torrent and the exact same edition is running on my PC, installed just fine. I tried several other CD's and on one of them it just got to the second restart and IT DIDN'T REBOOT! Even after waiting about 10 minutes it just did nothing. I restarted the laptop manually and then the install started from the beginning... Got any ideas what to do??? Please help, this is very VERY important!!!

Windows Freezes When Copying Large Files After A Search?

Jan 31, 2013

I have 2 internal-sata hard drives(320 gig. And 2tb.) and 1 external usb/2.0 hard drive (750 gig.). The pc is an old dell gx520 tower with a fresh install of Windows 7 pro. No antivirus, network connection, or firewall enabled. Processor is a Pentium4 running 3 GHz with 1.5 gigs of ram. This is the problem: If I do a search on the 2tb. Drive for all of the jpegs, I have a total of about 84000 pictures. When I select all of the pictures and right click-copy and try to paste to another hard drive the pc will lock up and won't display a copy status window. Windows says it's not responding. Now, if I right click-copy a single folder which has anywhere, from a few files to several hundred gigs. of data in it, using the same 2tb. Drive, it will copy over to another drive just fine. I have tried, changing the swap file from "windows managed" to, up to 20 gig. Thinking the search was maybe having to write to the swap file. This didn't work. I also booted in to safe mode and tried to do the copy from the 2tb. To the 320gig. drive and still no difference. I have tried this with windows copy handler and teracopy. It all has something to do with the fact that I am doing a search for the files before copying them.

Windows 7 64bit Installation Freezes During Expanding Files

Sep 18, 2010

I am trying to install Windows 7 64 bit on my system and it freezes during expanding files. I searched all forums and information thats available online, tried everything that was listed but no solution yet.

My system is Foxconn P9657AB-8EKRS2H LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard, Intel Quad Core Processor, 6 GB RAM on 3 slots, I had a 250 GB before this process but i bought a 1 TB 7200 RPM HD thinking that it would solve the problem somehow.

I took out all USB items including mouse & keyboard and using PS2 mouse/kb now. Also took out 2 RAMs leaving only one 2 GB. Now the machine only has the mother board, processor, video card, 2 gb ram, ps2 mouse & keyboard, and the monitors.

I checked BIOS, and i have the latest update. Tried everything on BIOS from setting it to Safe Mode, Disabling all USB ports, Internal Audio Device, and pretty much everything that i found online. Im just yet to flush the BIOS, change DVD drive and install it from a flash drive.

No Toolbar, Frozen Keys / "Windows Is Loading Files"?

Feb 26, 2012

My 13 year old daughter Lucy has just dropped her Dell Inspiron 1545 from a height of 15 inches (she tells me) !!. When she turned the laptop back on the first thing she saw was the wording "Windows is loading files", she has never see this before. When she gets to her login screen all she can see is the wallpaper, no icons, no toolbar, the cursor is visable and can be moved via the mouse pad and the brightness controls work but none of the other keys seem to work. No matter what I do I cannot view the toolbar or anything else for that matter and Lucy's tears are starting to form a large pool

Startup Repair Info While "windows Is Loading Files"

May 12, 2012

I have an Acer Aspire 5750-6677. I3-2310m. It has been performing the startup repair for over a day. It's now, finally (I think), saying "windows is loading files". It has been doing this for HOURS! Can I simply turn it off and attempt a different method or will that make it worse? BTW: it came with zero discs of any kind when I purchased it new in July 2011. This is my work comp too and I can't lose the info that's on it.
