Win 7 Retail Install appears to hang on blue screen

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd share this.It happened to me so it might happen to you...If you install Win 7 from the DVD (cold boot), and you appear to get a hang where you get a blue Win 7 background wallpaper screen with nothing in it (this is the screen where it normally should ask you for your langauge settings), just let the computer sit there for about 5 minutes, and eventually the langauge option screen will pop up.Don't do what I did and start ripping your computer apart.Just wait for about 5 minutes.I googled this and it has happened to some other people too.Why? Who knows. This never happened to me when installed the betas and RC's.
