Win 7 Ultimate install screen glitchy

Asus M2a-vm desktop board
September 4, 2010 at 11:49:38
Specs: Windows XP Pro SP3, 2gb
I try to install Win 7 Ultimate and it loads all the way to the graphics install screen, then it goes crazy glitchy and I can barely see what's going on. I have a ATI Raedon X850XT PCI-E video card and a Athlon X2 4200+ CPU.

When I try the DVD on my other PC (which is inferior in every way & has integrated graphics and a single core), it works perfectly. So maybe something to do with my video card?

Are you trying to perform a clean install, or an upgrade? You should be performing a clean install form WinXP.

Are you using an original MSoft DVD?

I did a clean install. The problem actually turned out to be my flat panel display with DVI. I tried my old VGA flat panel and I was able to install Win 7. Then I switched displays and everything works.

Thanks for the reply.
