I am trying to install windows t RC on my HTPC. I already installed it on my office computer and it all went smooth. but when i tried to install it on my HTPC in the living room i am havign problems. it always gets to the "expanding files" portion and at some point during this process the screen just goes black and never comes back up. i even let it sit overnight and still it never came back up - it just seems to hang. also i could not get my HTPC to boot from the dvd. i even re-burned it from the iso on my office computer. so i ended up connecting an external USB DVD drive and now it boots from the disc every time but won't get past the "expanding files" stage. i had no problems when i installed the win7 Beta on the htpc. any suggestions??? BTW: i am doing a clean install of the 32 bit version.
