Just got a boot disk created through MSDNAA for free win7.

I put it in and after the "windows loading" screen it went to screen with the win7 theme and a cursor with nothing else. I tried it again and got the same result.

Anyone see this happen before, or know how to get it to install from there?

Try waiting 10 mins to see if it loads.

otherwise reburn the disk at a slow speed.

I'm currently running win7 RC, which expires tomorrow.

I got a retail version, and I'm trying to install it.

I'll try waiting right now; I figured if it wasn't up in 5 minutes it wasn't gonna come up.

Ok, it came up.

But now it says it needs a driver for my dvd drive? So I put the only driver released for my dvd drive on a usb drive and it says it's not valid.

I've installed several different OS's on this PC and I've never seen anything with the dvd drive before. Has anyone else seen this?
