I am trying to do a fresh install of windows 7 on my AMD desktop PC which was previously running xp , I have tried several times with different copies of "7"disk but always with the same result , all goes well up to the "Installing Devices "window and then it freezes at 44% .
the motherboard is a KN1 SLI Lite , Phoenix CMOS set up utility , I have the pc configured to run the dvd drive as boot .
I have searched online and here and I removed all usb devices , I had 16gb of memory so took out 8 gb , no change
I am competent to follow any clear instructions you could think might help me, I did read about altering things with Command prompt so if I need to do that could you make your instructions as clear as possible please .
thank you in advance
