Vista & XP installs just fine & works great. Windows 7 starts install at the end of the install (when it asks for username & password or when it shows welcome screen) it restarts (suddenly) & after that shows there's no OS installed. I've change my HDD, still doesn't work.

I have Intel core 2 quad 2.33 ghz, Intel DG41TY motherboard, 4gb ddr2 ram, nvidia geforce 9500gt (1gb), 1TB seagate HDD

I've contacted manufacturer but they couldn't help me, I've tried different windows 7 DVDs, i don't have motherboard problem & I've updated BIOS. I'm not getting any blue screen problems & my PC is brand new. Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor says it's gonna run on my pc.

So please friends help me, I need to know what's wrong

And yet Vista and XP will install.

Has the HDD been newly formatted and is it NFTS?

Have you tried resetting the BIOS to defaults?

Downloaded it from a torrent. It doesn't sound like a legitimate copy to me.

Versions downloaded from a torrent may have an imbeded virus or trojan. Buy a legimate copy.

Get Ultimate Boot CD and run HDD diagnostics. Unless your new drive has some sort of corrupted or hacked boot sector I can think of no reason for this.

You claim to be able to install XP and Vista on the same system. 2 and 2 do not equal 5. Something you are telling us is incorrect.

This does seem very odd. After all it would be unusual to find a Core 2 brand new as the technology is years old now. I suspect the cause of the problem is the use of illegitimate software which of course cannot be supported on this site.

Sounds to me like a hard drive issue, but it also could be the fact that its pirated which in many instances cause more harm than good. Ill have to be wary on what support i give out because of the fact that its pirated and i dont approve of that.
