Windows7 won't install on fresh drive

Got a virus in my old drive. I bought a new drive and tried to install Windows 7 on it and slave the old drive so to pull files off I wanted, and then format the drive. This did not work. All I get is the Windows blue screen with the dove on it, and no desktop. I'm Stuck.

    Does the same thing. I've never seen this before.
  3. Most likely the new drive is one of the new "advanced format" drives with 4k sectors. This requires your installation media to be at SP1 level.
