It "appears" to freeze but then proceeds; that is, at the initial Windows Vista boot screen having the progress bar at the bottom of a black screen. The colored bars stop moving for quite some time and then resume. It seems to take way too long before it starts moving again and finished booting
NOTES: I just ran HP Recovery to reinstall Vista Home Premium on an m9400f for a friend. At first, I tried re-installing Vista using the HP Recovery Disks provided but was getting a BSOD (nvstor.sys) and then tried a set of "Geek Squad" disks that she provided for me that worked. The BIOS is still set to boot from a CD first but I don't imagine that would cause this issue since Windows is already booting from the HDD.
Any ideas on this issue and/or a pointer on how to completely rebuild this Vista OS on this machine would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance! - FreddoB

..don't get angry with Technical Phone Support Respresentatives personally, we're just following the process. It's our job.
While I'm on this forum, I'm not speaking for HP, I'm speaking for myself.. XD
