    Sorry should point out VM = Virgin Media and not Virtual Machine in this instance!

    The USB memory stick I was using is poop I think, I went for another install with a fresh download and it started throwing driver corruption errors.

    Doing a fresh install on a different usb, seems to be quicker too.

    That uses an AMD chipset right? What hard drive mode are the SATA disks in RAID/AHCI?

    What RAID driver version are you using? Is it v3.2.1540.75 ?

    There are no drives in the RAID, they haven't been delivered yet (thanks scan....) just the 250Gb drive that comes with the system moved to an aux SATA port

    And yes AMD

    Did you need to load any storage drivers to install windows on the single drive, is it in AHCI mode in the BIOS do you know?
    This problem is just like one I spent ages trying to track down and it was an AMD AHCI/RAID driver issue.

    No no extra drivers, it gets passed the green scroll loading screen now and sits at a black screen with white mouse cursor but goes no further.
    If I restart it goes into recovery mode.

    If I dont DCpromo and just have DNS and DHCP its fine.
