Windows 7 installation problems

I'm new so I'll cut to the chase. I'm using windows 7 home premium 32bit OEM. I started installing at noon. I'm using a custom install. When I get to expanding windows files, it would start freezing at some numbers for as long as 30 minutes. At 4 the expanding ended. It also tool a half hour to finish installing too. When I got to the product key, I typed it in and it took 20 minutes to confirm it. When I got to the page that said windows is finalizing settings, it turned to a blank black screen. I tried it again and it froze. I also tried repairing but it did nothing. I also ran the upgrade adviser and I meet the minimum requirements.


I hope somebody could explain what's going on.

I notice from this thread you also posted recently that you don't have a graphics card installed and that your hard drive partition is only 34GB in size.

What video card to upgrade to

These two factors I would have thought may well prevent Windows 7 installing.

Your spec's state:
OS Windows 7 home premium 32bit sp1 OEM, ubuntu 11.04, windows xp
Hard Drives 34.4 gb
Memory Ram, 34.4 gb HDD???????

So this would make 3 partitions 11gb each, one for each OS.

Do you wont all three OS?

If you're trying to install Windows 7 on a hard drive of 11GB in size, it will more than likely fail.

According to Microsoft, the minimum disc space required is 16GB for the 32-bit version and 20GB for the 64-bit version.

Formatting might not be enough. Wipe the HD from DVD Repair Command Line to try install: Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

Next test the HD using maker's diagnostics/repair extended CD scan: HD Diagnostic

Reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

Next test your RAM: RAM - Test with Memtest86+ Reseat your RAM, swap sticks.

Where did you get Windows 7? If you burned it yourself try confirming the iSO integrity and burn another DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed with Verify. Or write ISO to flash stick to try install: Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3 | USB Pen Drive Linux
