I am currently trying to switch back to Windows from Ubuntu. Originally I was having issues with Windows and installed Ubuntu to ensure my hard drive was not failing. Now i am trying to reinstall windows after wiping my computer.
 
I have uninstalled Ubuntu and partitioned my drive. After creating my Windows 7 bootable USB, I booted up, allowing it to boot from the USB. It went through the Windows installation process and I selected my partition to install Windows. Once it went through the steps the screen became black and the backlight would come on for a second then back off, I let it sit idle for roughly and hour before going through the process again. Each time the end result is a black screen that will brighten then dim. No cursor, no underscore.
 
I have a Samsung Chronos Series 7 and I am trying to install Windows Home Premium.

Erase partition... leave it blank and try reinstalling windows again... letting the windows setup partition the drive itself (unless you are trying to do some dual booting magic).

I have erased all partitions. The only partition I set up is the necessary one when going through the Windows setup.

No partition is necessary, if you are using a valid Win 7 install program.  The software within the install program creates the partition as part of the install.

 

What is the source of this Win 7 install you are trying via USB?
