I recently bought a new asus laptop and after some issues with it i decided to format and clean install the OS. It came with windows 7 home premium 64-bit. I went out and bought windows 7 Pro 64bit and attempted an install. The installation went through smoothly til the end where i recieved the message "interactive logon has failed, please consult the event log ..." after this message it rebooted and attempted a start-up only to be met with a strange gray screen and then it reboots again.

Nothing else works like safe mode, or advanced boot options. Ive tried installing several times with with the same result.

Now whats weird is that when i install a 32-bit version of this theres no problems, except that its designed for a 64 and runs slowly.

So why would i be able to install a 32bit version of windows and not a 64 bit? Even though all the hardware is for a 64??
