I am reloading Windows 7 on my laptop. It came with Windows 7, but after some problems I was told to re-install as that might fix them.
My problem is that the install hangs when Setup is updating the Registry settings.
It is from disk. I actually found that one of the memory DIMMS was bad. The diagnostic test on the laptop itself tested the memory and said it was fine, but when I used another test I had on CD it failed almost immediately. Once I replaced the DIMM to the re-install went smoothly.
