I spent a few hours last night attempting to install windows 7 Ultimate on my fairly old (P4, 2GB ram) pc. I had recently bought a 1GB Radeon HD 4650 AGP graphics card. Unfortunately, this card did not play well with Win7, causing a BSOD after the starting up logo. I was able to complete the installation with my old card just fine (an nvidea 7600 GS), but I had no intention of using it going forward, since I had just replaced the power supply to use the new card, plus the price of the radeon card. After switching out the card, I was back to BSOD on startup. I was able to boot into safe mode, but unable to install the driver from there, alas. After about 2-3 hours of messing with it, I gave up and went back to windows xp, which boots into standard VGA when the graphics card is unknown, and lets me install the driver with no problems. I am just curious if anyone here knows a remedy to this issue. Is there a way to force Windows 7 to do a normal boot, but not attempt to use video acceleration? I think if I could have gotten a nomal boot using the VGA video adapter I could have solved my problem.
