FC4 Test 1 login problem SOLVED!

I have the exact same problem.

Try letting your computer stay on for a while. It should load after 20 minutes or so (it does for me). Now comes the problem. Your computer will be slow as hell, and you're gonna be crying.

I currently am burning FC3 (I can't find my old DVD. Very odd indeed) again, so that I can just go back. I've had nothing but problems with FC4. Please, for the love of god please, don't use FC4 unless you're the l33test of the l33test
