Issue: After completing the Windows 7 64 bit install, the screen goes black with a white blinking cursor. After rebooting the screen freezes at the ‘Starting Windows’ screen which should proceed with the configuration of the Windows 7 install (select computer & user name, etc.) Before the ‘Starting Windows’ screen there is the following message: “Boot from AHCI CD-ROM” or something similar. This was not present when XP was running successfully. Throughout this process I ran into a BSOD which mentioned iaStorV.sys which apparently relates to the Intel Matrix Storage Manager as explained here. Action Taken: -I tried repairing the windows installation using the Windows 7 DVD, but it could not find anything. -I tried booting into safe mode, but it said Windows needs to install first.
