I do not know exact reason of that problem , but i can say the following : Another approach may be to install 7.1 i386 ISO . If 32-bits works . but 64-bits does not work . it may mean that a hardware part is not usable by the 64-bits operating system . If 32-bits even does not work ( we know that 6.4 32-bits is working ) this may mean that in your PC there is an older hardware which its support is or has been removed from the operating system . Another approach would be removal of components from ISA slots and then try to boot the 64-bits operating system . If it can boot , then add the ISA components one-by-one to isolate which component is causing the lock up . If even this does not work : Then best action may be to use 6.4 or if it is possible to replace the older hardware by a newer ( or compatible ) hardware . In new main boards there is no ISA bus slots . ISA slots components approximately can NOT be auto-detected easily because they do not have such a related circuitry . There is another point : Some manufacturers are producing parts which can only work by a famous widely used operating system by cutting some electronic circuitry parts . Such components can NOT work under Unix or Linux . During selection of parts it may be useful to check whether at least it can work under Linux if BSD is not mentioned at all . Thank you very much .
