Yeah, I have another PC problem, this time with software So I decided to upgrade my W7U 32 bit for the 64 bit since I have a lot of RAM that's not being used and my CPU being 64 bit capable I didn't exactly do this the "legal" way. I burned an ISO image of the installation from a torrent onto a DVD+R disc and loaded up the installation burned disc onto my computer soon after, without doing anything to the original OS. I used this video tut - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vU6TBSXn2bc&feature=plcp The installation took WAY longer than expected. I have slow DSL internet so you can imagine trying to download a 5GB disc at 80 kbs (High priority). The installation itself was too long IMO, and it lagged like hell, meaning that the FPS were low on screen. It took about 12 hours for the first part of the installation and another 5 for it to complete the installation. I skipped the serial key verification and came back to it in 10 hours. After an hour or two of waiting, it came to a black screen with the mouse cursor. I got fed up and turned it off, let my computer rest for a few hours and then re-booted it. It came to a black screen (BSoD I presume) so I re-booted it and started the StartUp Repair, which is what it's currently doing right now What exactly did I do wrong? Was I suppose to wait at the black screen with the mouse cursor? Or was the installation screwed up in the first place? The kid (or woman) in the video claimed the installation should only take about a few hours yet mine took an entire day and it didn't even work. Is it a corrupted hard drive? Bad installation disc?
