Windows 7 installation fails after 1 setup session

Hi all,

I am trying to install Windows 7 on my Acer Predator 7750G but everytime the first installation phase stops it says that it cannot configure my computer so the installation will stop.

I have had some virus problems on my HDD were i couldn't see what was on them, that is the reason why i have choosen to install from scratch on the computer!

Anyone tried this problem?

Appreciate the help

NB! I am from Denmark so my english is very poor, sorry for that!

SGNDK,

Please follow the procedure to do a Clean All on your hard drive.

The majority of following info is in the links already given to you.

GO TO A COMMAND PROMPT USING YOUR WIN 7 DVD
■Boot up from your Windows 7 DVD.
■At the first dialog window, press SHIFT + F10 key combo
■You will have a X:> command prompt
X: is a ram drive created by Windows 7.





WIPE A DISK CLEAN

type DiskPart, Enter key
type List disk, Enter key
note the numeral of the disk you want to clean
for example purposes, Iíll be using the numeral 2
type Select disk 2, Enter key
type Detail disk, Enter key
this info will let you know if you selected correctly
type Clean ALL, Enter key
your entire disk is being overwritten with zeros.
This can take a considerable amount of time
type EXIT, Enter key (only after Clean is finished)
type EXIT, Enter key (this gets you back where you were)


=========================
==========================
Your english is excellent. Congratulations.

After 3 tries it worked! The first disk, which haves 931 GB, is now doing a clean all and after that the second disk will have the same treat; so it is gonna take about 8 hours (after your guides time info) so i will post again tomorrow or whenever the computer will be done!

And thanks, writing a post takes forever

I have just read the clean install guide again, and is says something about that when you run with raid you need to have your drivers on a USB pen! Is it possible that anyone of you guys know which drivers i need or de i even run raid when the predator is just as when it came from Acer (i know it is a dumb question but i have only had the computer for 2 weeks so i really want it to work).

My computer specs (here on danish if there is a different predator in US), mayby you guys can figure it out?

I have dowloaded the sata drivers from the Acer homepage!
