hopefully someone can help out here?


  • installed Windows 7 Home Premium a few months ago to play Skyrim on my mid-2009 13" MBP (upgraded to 8GB RAM before installing W7)
  • works fine up until a week ago- booted up Windows 7 partition, but freezes on logo animation (it goes as far as the Windows icon but it freezes just as you see it)
  • Windows 7 will boot up in Safe Mode, so tried System Restore, nothing, no difference made
  • reinstalled Windows, has done the same today after only a few days of working


any idea what's gone wrong? is this related to an update on Steam/Skyrim's side, or is this a Windows 7 update?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 13" Unibody
