Whenever I change my system locale I boot to a black screen with no cursor, and an inability to do anything. When I boot in safe mode the computer will stop at some .sys file that I fail to remember (which is perhaps key).
The first time this happened I was able to use the disk to repair and get out, but now when I switch back to English (United States) I can't repair my way out of and I have to do a system restore.
My motherboard is an Gigabyte X58A-UD3R which is know to have BIOS that conflict with Windows 7 installation. It causes the installation disk to pause for 10-20 minutes before opening the first menu boxes to install Windows 7. It's really frustrating to go through this especially when the computer won't repair until the 3rd-4th try.
I have another problem which could be unrelated, but I have been having random freezes. My RAM timings are all correct, etc, so I'm guessing it's a software problem.
