I just built a new system. New MSI motherboard with 8gb memory and Intel quad 4 CPU. I loaded win 7 pro no problems. I went ahead and made a raw image using Ghost because windows 7 pro keeps corrupting. It really only corrupts after I have to do a hard reboot....not because windows locked up but because I was in a rush a did not plug my moniter into my ASUS video card...so i cant see whats on the screen and i hard reboot. When I had XP pro i could hard reboot all day even on a frozen windows screen and it always came back up. With Win 7 pro it has already corruped several times so i just load up my Ghost and restore....and Im back up and running. Why is this Win 7 pro so unstable? Anyone else experience this?. Also, when it prompts for a repair it sits there for 10 to 15 min trying to repair!??? Thank god for Ghost and Acronis. Not sure if this could be a motherboard issue or CPU.. maybe even memory? This is got me worried because when i get ready to load all of my important programs I dont want to lose my data if i had to do a hard reboot for some reason. With Ghost live it's kinda of reasurring that i can recover pretty fast.... but I really shouldn't have to over a hard reboot or pressing the reset switch.
