unksol, He posted under window 7.
Concur with anonymous1 on using the lates Bios revision for your Motherboard:
But do need to verify are you tring to install Window8, or Windows 7 and if it is 32 bit or 64 bit OS.
2nd, Hard to answer without knowing your system.

There are also applications that will check your system and identify if it meets the requirements of the operating system.
For windows 8:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/system-req...
Click on Upgrade Assistant. at bottom of Page.
For Windows 7:
http://windows.microsoft.com/upgrade-windows-vista
Click on "Windows 7 system requirements" to see requirements.
Click on "Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor" to run a system check.

HOLY CRAP. I have been working on this stupid error on and off for the better part of a week. Scouring the interwebs, downloading drivers, configuring BIOS, must have formatted this brand new drive and reinstalled windows at least a dozen times. And then some random comment at the end of a thread............you sir are my hero. Thank you

I did this and it took me through the Windows sign in/ sign up process...
And then after all that it said it was checking System Performance and so on...I waited for that...
Then it just took me BACK to the same error message again!

Then it went back to the old "Windows failed to start. ... " black screen.

Am curious why this didn't work for me like it worked for others... and if you or anyone has any other suggestions.

I installed a new Seagate Barracuda 2TB internal hard drive to replace the old 750gig hard drive on my Dell XP430 desktop.
Trying to install Windows Vista 64bit Home Premium on the new hard drive.

By the way, I have some drivers on a disc but how do I get the system to load them when there is no Windows loaded already?
And my Seagate drive instructions say "Boot your system in to the Windows Vista CD". That is what I did.
Then it says "When prompted by Windows to install a 3rd party SCSI or RAID driver, press the F6 key then the S key when prompted, to specify additional devices.
Then insert the SATA driver cd and press enter.

It explains that I am supposed to prepare a disc of SATA drivers and I do have a Dell driver disc that *may* have them on it and I also have a disc of drivers and BIOS I copied from the Dell site. However - and this is key - I WAS NEVER PROMPTED DURING THE WINDOWS INSTALLATION PROCESS TO INSTALL A 3RD PARTY SCSI OR RAID DRIVER.

PLEASE HELP! I HAVE A NEW HARD DRIVE, READY TO ROCK AND ROLL BUT DON'T KNOW WHAT IS THE NEXT MOVE TO GET OVER THIS MAJOR HUMP!

To sort it out do this:
At the first error hit SHIFT F10
Type -
Cd..
Cd..
Cd c:\windows\system32\oobe
Msoobe
This should force the installation to continue.
If the error reappears click on OK and let it restart the system, once restarted it should carry on with the installation
