[embed=file 1116113] Working with a Lenovo think pad E531, that looked like a failed HD. Replaced HD, booted off win 7 DVD & it would just hang at the 'starting Windows' screen. Ran built in diagnostics & all passed. I went to Lenovo's site & downloaded an image for a diagnostics DVD & it gets as far as enclosed screen shot. Don't these things load into memory & run from there? All memory tests passed, so any suggestions as to what to try next?
