If this helps.....

I have a pc that will literally be stuck on that screen for 30 min.
Have you let it sit for an hour or so to see if it will get past that screen, or just 5 min?

Have you tried loading windows via the dvd?
The problem may just be with the usb without current drivers.

Short of getting an external or another internal dvd rom.
Ebay or google for it, has an adapter to connect a laptop 2.5" hdd to a desktop pc (3.5").
Then you can load windows onto the laptop hdd, then install it into the laptop.

Your problem with windows and the dvd rom may be related, being a problem with the laptop its self.

Also, you can't just copy windows 7 to a usd stick and have it load windows. I assume that you know this, but i figured it should be pointed out just in case. To find how to do this properly, google will show a lot of how to guides.

i think you should wait for some time and check if something is happening....or might be the windows 7 setup that you have is corrupted or something try to install it using other USB stick it should work.....


Good luck
