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 .
