I am having some major issues installing windows 7 64 bit Professional OEM
Hello everyone, I browsed through the forum and have had no success in finding an answer to the issue that I am currently experiencing.
I have a custom built computer that I am updating to more modern hardware and OS.
I have currently 1 hard drive with Vista 32 bit ult. I also have 1 blank hd that I would like to put windows 7 64 bit on.
I have configured the bios to boot from DVD-rom and disconnected the old HD with Vista on it.
But it only reads the DVD about 1 out of 20 times. On the 3 times that I have gotten it to the start up process, it has told me that it is unable to use the hard drive based on the fact that it is not a properly formatted hard drive.
I find this to be odd. I have formated it in Vista for NTFS the same way 3 times, in the win 7 installation 3 times it has come up with three different types of format issues. Suggestions please...
Thanks, I now am having another problem... I decided to buy two new hard drives and make it a raid system.... maybe i should give up on this it seems to be causing me more head ache than its worth atm!
I will try to do this with the new HD's and report back thanks for your suggestion.
thanks for the link, I have given up on setting up a RAID at this moment.... I don't know how to get my keyboard to register my key strokes in DOS and have given up after hours of trying. For now i am using my HHD's normally. IF anyone has experience setting up a Gigabyte mobo for a RAID configuration, please help.
Its asking me to press control + g, which i do, to enter setup and it is not registering...
