Hey guys I tried using this method.I now have a 40GB IDE that has XP PRO and wanna install 7 on a new SATA I have.So I extract the iso file to my IDE then run the setup.exe.
I selected to install 7 on my SATA.It goes well at 'Copying Windows File',but at 'Expanding Windows file',at 27%,the computer will restart,then it goes back to the setup,then restarts again,then I don't know how,but the setup will fail and it will boot back into my XP Pro!!The error I get is 'Windows 7 installation was not successful.Previous version of Windows was restored,etc.'
What the hell is wrong?Retarded installation setup!!!And you know,when starting the install,the setup will say 'Copying temporary files' right?It takes a bloody long time!!
