It installed in another machine in a virtual environment, no problem.

In this machine, it installed, then re-booted itself (to complete setup?), I selected W7, and after 'Starting Windows', it goes black, with a cursor.

No rt-click, no Ctrl+Alt+Del, no Shift+F10, nothing lights up.

Ideas here?

So I turned on my Sony TV in the other room, and Windows was using that as display #1. The monitor (#2) was not configured, so was not displaying.

On the Sony, I found 700 instances of Admin CLI boxes open. This machine is not online.

I have seen on the same machine, with Linux booted, dialogue boxes, such as for naming a file or folder, filling up with 1's. Once, it was in a command line window, and when I closed the window, a desktop file started adding 1's to the file name.

Could this be a BIOS virus??? BIOS bug?

It's probably worth trying a clean reinstall with minimal hardware complications - especially the television and add those in after the system is stable.

By the way, I also started out using TRS-80 on a Tandy TRS 1000 (I think) PC. A few years on I also chose to buy a Betamax video recorder. I reckon the Eighties just weren't my decade! :D
