    What do you mean somebody else many months ago?

    Hmm, can you test another GFX Card, or test your disk in another PC after the install goes black? Sounds like your GFX Card is stopping due to driver or something, do you wait a while and let it try to finish?

    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/ds3r...ormance-28208/ - but maybe I do not remember correctly.
    Actually I had a HDMI cable plugged into my ATI Sapphire Radeon HD 4670, Ultimate Edition. Now I will unplug it. Fortunately I have 2 functioning PC's so I can swap GFX, thx for advice.
    regards Michael

    So Newegg makes me from America then?

    Ahhhh........ Just giving you a hard time man, I am American

    Ya I would test another card, because I know towards the end is when Windows 7 switches to the good GFX Driver from the initial poor one and sounds like this correlates with your blank screen

    You do have Init First Display set to PEG Right, just checking?

    YES, YES now it worked. So, what was the problem? I cannot say for sure, because I change min. 2 parameters in the end:
    1. GFX card, ATI, Catalyst Center: set everything back to default.
    2. Unplugged a HDMI cable in the GFX card

    I guess no. 1 helped ;-) What I learned: When installing Windows 7 - or maybe any OS: Set all hardware back to default: BIOS fail safe default, Videocard etc.
    Thanks a lot for your assistance, it clarified about the yellow and purple slots, about Intel and Gigabyte etc.
    This post is written from my XP ;-)
    btw: I installed Windows 7 on a harddisk connected to yellow SATA2_1 (shows up in BIOS as CH1 Master) and the XP installation sits on SATA2_0 as CH0 - my goodness all this tech stuff is really not for the average user ;-) Have a nice day or evening or night ...

    Nice to hear you got it working!!

    You can check to see if you like, plug in the HDMI and see if that was the issue.
