    Installing Windows 7. It just finished copying all the files to the harddrive and then it restarts to complete the installation (you know, the part where you type your namem computername and so on)

    But after the restart, I can see it starting, Windows logo and all... But it looks like it's going to start but then, it's just a black screen. But I can see my mouse, and move around, on a completely black background.

    I tried leaving it there for an hour but nothing happened. Tried several restarts, didn't work.
    Tried booting the computer it in safe made, but the installation program said it can't continue in safe mode and restartet. Aaaand I was back at the black screen.
    Tried doing the install again, and some problem.

    It's really weird. Haven't encountered this problem before and I have no idea on how to solve it.

    Can anyone help?

    What version of Windows 7 do you have and where did you get your copy?

    Windows 7 Home Edition 64 bit - Completely original

    Also tried with a Windows 7 64 bit Enterprise edition - pirated (with all updates untill jan. 2011 included)

    And got exactly the same problem.

    And if you must know, I got the pirated copy on the world wide web. It's a magical place. And the legal one? Not really any of your business :)

    I do not help with pirated software and neither does this site.
    Look for this thread to be closed.
