S5520SC with 2*Xeon E5620 - unable to finish Windows 7 64-bit installation

Hello. Maybe someone can help me with solution. When I'm installing OS - unable to finish it. It freeze at final steps. Prevously I installed OS on the same configuration PC this way: I had also other unit with other XEON CPU (E5503) - no problems there, I installed OS on that system. After this take out 2 HDDs (RAID Mirroring) and put these drives into problematic unit (with E5620 CPU). But at this moment I haven't other unit or CPUs. So, thats why I'm askin for solution here. I tried to turn off cores, just leaves one core. It wasn't helpful. Any ideas? I think problem in win 7 64 bit release for this hardware. Because this problem only with E5620. I' ll try to install 32 bit tomorrow, but I'm not sure that this will help: I must to sell unit exactly with 64 bit Win 7 Pro.

With best regards, Alexandr.

Sounds like the old NIC driver problem.

Click the load drivers link at the screen where it asks which HDD ot install on and point it at the newest NIC drivers.

Hello, yes I know about NIC, I installed drivers from Intel after OS installation.

But why the same MB with other CPU - installation was finished without any problems?

Are You really think this can be helpful with NIC in my situation?

With best regards, Alexandr.

Hi.

And how to add more than one driver before installation?

I can choose only RAID driver or NIC or something other.

Different processors will be handled differently during an OS installation; so it is no surprise that one will work while another doesn't.

To specify additional drivers, press 'S' during Windows installation.

All is resolved, I placed all drivers in one DIR on my usb flash, added it all - installation finished.

Thanks!
