My patience is on its last legs here, but basically what it boils down to is this: I put my Windows 7 RC and load it on boot. I'm doing a clean install so i had assumed it would be easier, unfortunately it has not been so. After the "Press any key to boot from CD or DvD" screen i am met with the windows 7 setup screen but no dialog box appears. Now i tested it, and if i wait an hour and a half it will reach the setup box. The problem is that it fails to do anything after that, and i've tried everything: -New discs -New downloads -Both 32 and 64 bit versions -Unplugging every USB peripheral except my keyboard -Waiting for the setup all night and still achieving nothing but the blue setup screen I have tried Windows 7 and loved it, so you can see why i am so frustrated being stuck with Windows XP when there is obviously a better alternative.
