I am trying to install Microsoft 7 from Vista. I've run into a series of problems.
-- I downloaded microsoft 7 from the microsoft online store
-- I can't complete the setup process until I update the BIOS -- error message is:
Windows cannot be installed on this computer with the current system BOIS versoin. Contact your computer manufacturer for a BIOS update, install the update, and then start windows instalation again. OEM Name: Dell Inc.; OEM Model: Inspiroin 1720 ; BIOS Version: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A04; BIOS Date: 20071105000000.000000+000
-- So, I went to dell and downloaded BIOS A09
-- I went to run it but I am told I have to be an administrator
-- After reading online how to be an admin of my own computer, I logged in as "safe mode" and try to run it again
-- now is where the fun starts -- I get a new error -- it tells me that it won't run due to a flash error, something like this:
BIOS Flash A09 Inspiron 1720
I've looked online but don't see a solution. I added ram and now have 4GB.
