I used YUMI to make my usb drive bootable. When i get to the windows 7 "completing installation" I got this error, "windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer's hardware" after i restarted my pc "windows could not complete the installation. to install windows on this computer restart the installation"
Specs:
USB lexar 8gb formatted 32fat
Gigabyte 78LMT USB3
8gb 2x4gb 1600 ram (my motherboard supports 1300) I don't know if that is the problem.
Hard drive seagate 500gb

Try setting SATA to IDE in BIOS. See if helping.

I have already set it to IDE my hard drive. It's plugged in sata 2 port 1, would plugging it into port 0 make a difference? and would it matter if i plugged in the second power connecter (not the last) to the Hard drive

Try a different SATA port (board turned off). The power connector does not matter.
Is the USB connected to a 2.0 port?

Is the HDD new, or used before?

Do you think if I restarted the install using a new format (NFTS from fat32) it can solve the error?

You can try. Try also removing the USB drive after completing the installation (when Windows restarts - before getting the error). Make also sure that in BIOS the second bootable drive (after the removable) is the HDD.

No, leave them like that. Try installing again and remove the USB after completing the installation (when waiting for reboot).

Thank you! I think i fixed it by using the format NFTS instead of fat32 or taking the usb off
