I've assembled my computer, now I'm trying to install Windows.

I try to boot from DVD. It shows the "windows is loading files" screen, then goes to this screen, where it freezes.



I've left it running for a couple of hours, and it doesn't go beyond that point.
Any ideas what the problem could be?

It's an external DVD drive with a USB connection. Could it be that the USB drivers aren't loaded yet?
But if so, how did it work that far?

The drive and the system disk seem to work fine. I've tried booting my old computer from them, and it goes to the install screen without problem.

Can I install Windows in a new disk on my old computer, then move that to my new one? would that even work?

If you have access to another computer can you just transfer the Windows loader to a USB stick and use that on your new computer?

Your best option is to mount the ISO to a USB drive as stated above. One thing You might try before doing that is make sure Your DVD drive is connected to a USB2 port, not a USB3 port, and the port is native to the MOBO, not something like a port on the case.

Thanks for the replies.I've managed to sort out the problem. It was a faulty hard drive.
