Hey guys i recently got the Windows 7 RC, i burnt it, booted up, it passed the ' Starting Windows ' phase but then freezes on the first screen which uses a colourful, blue wallpaper, I can move the mouse but nothing else, the cd drive & hard drive stop loading. I am currently using XP SP3 and any help would really be appreciated, Thanks.

A couple things. Try re-burning at a lower speed, and also try waiting for a while. This happened to me but I ended up just leaving it for a while and it came up with the install menu.
