Hi guys.. really need your help on this one as I'm stumped!
I recently formatted my hard drive after having some blue screen issued with Windows 7, after it has been running fine for years. After formatting I was not able to use the Windows 7 Upgrade disc. I decided to install an old copy of XP to be sure I was not having any hardware issues and it is running perfectly.
I know i can't upgrade directly from XP and have to do a clean install. When trying to install from XP i get the message;
"This installation disc isn't compatible with your version of windows. To upgrade, you need the correct installation disc. For more information, check your computers system information. To install a new copy of Windows, restart (boot) your computer using the installation disc and then select custom (advanced)."
The problem is when i boot from the CD I don get the option to install from the disc. It begins by saying 'Windows is loading files...' and then the Starting Windows logo completely scrambles and wont go any further.
This is what it looks like;
Any ideas why this is? And what i can do to get Windows 7 to install?
