ok sorry tried to explain in the wrong place
here goes tried to use recovery disks they get to 96%stall
so the owner did one clean install of win7 deleted the partition and so on fllowed the prompts
now before any programs installed this thing is so slow atleast.5 hr to get to any screen probably closer to hr
not sure even where to start
I have tried that several times and all with a different boot time and result.
the bios boots like normal and when reinstalling the os it boots the starting windows screen and flashing logo in normal time also the install selection screens appear in what seems to be the correct time.but it falls wat behind after this.
im leaning toward a bad hdd
next question is how do you get to the hdd.
i dont see any fasteners on the back.
this is an all in one desktop.
