Using a working DVD with the image (since it was able to be installed on my dad's computer) it works fine on my system until it restarts after completing the first phase of the installation. After it restarts and goes to the screen with Starting Services and the screen after where it says Completing Installation. At this point it seems to take forever, is this normal or is something terribly wrong? Everyone else has mentioned that its really fast to install so I'm wondering what's going on. During this phase my mouse doesn't work (USB) but my keyboard still does (PS2), After awhile theres no more HD access and the DVD drive even stop spinning so it's like its not even doing anything. EDIT: After resetting and reformatting the drive when it restarts and it says Starting Windows it BSODs into a screen with no error. Previously this happened to me with the error being an "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_DRIVE" or something similar. I am beginning to suspect that this is due to a HD failure since before retiring this HD, it had serious data corruption issues and hangs.
