I know lots of people have had difficulty starting this game, but I haven't seen anyone describe the same issue I'm having. If I missed it, sorry about that.

What happens to me is that I can get through the opening FMV, but then I see a screen that I assume is loading the menu ... I remember seeing a little progress wheel of some kind. But it cuts in and out, and the music keeps skipping back over and over. The menu never loads ... sometimes it sits like that for a long time, other times Grid just crashes and I'm back in Windows.

Here's what I'm running:

8800 GTS
Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0Ghz
Windows 7 64
4Gb RAM

Funny thing is, I ran the Grid demo on this exact machine, but with Windows Vista 32 instead, and it ran just fine.

I did try setting the Grid process to run with only one processor, but it made no difference.

Any suggestions?
