Windows 7: Win7 Ultimate 64 Install DVD restarts laptop.

Win7 Ultimate 64 Install DVD restarts laptop.

A video is worth a thousand words (you may jump the "Windows is loading files" part)

  • Can't install from USB (I don't have one big enough for the installation files)
  • I tried running an ISO from Grub, No results.
  • Tried Running the installation from a partition. Cannot boot it.
  • Tried with default bios setting, Not working either.


Whats disabled on the bios:
  • Floppy
  • Native SATA support
  • IDE Controller

Boot order:
  • Internal CD drive
  • Primary Hard Disk
  • USB
  • Network

Thanks In Advance for any help

Where did you get Windows 7? How was the DVD burned? Confirm ISO and burn another using ImgBurn at 4x speed or write to flash stick with Universal USB Installer with Windows 7 in dropdown.

Windows 7 fits on a DVD, not a CD.

If there is GRUB on the HD then wipe it first: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Follow these steps: Clean Install Windows 7

Bought the software from MS Store online, downloaded iso.... Gonna try burning at 4x.
i know how to install Windows, but never had this problem before.

Are there people who actually think Windows 7 fits in a CD? wow.

GRUB is on one drive, i want to install windows into the slave drive. I have it as a slave because it has no OS on it.

I'll reply with results, Thanks.

You should proceed with a booted installer which is needed for repairs and because installing from an OS can lock up C so that Windows 7 will not be seen as C when booted into it as it does when installed correctly from boot. That said, you can install from an OS on C over itself and Windows 7 will claim C.

In your case if you have GRUB on another HD, then I would unplug it and boot to install Windows 7 to its target HD. With separate HD's it's best to boot them independently via the BIOS rather than using GRUB or Windows 7 Dual Boot manager. Set Windows 7 to boot first, after install plug back in Linux and boot it using one-time BIOS Boot Menu key.

The only problem with this is, Windows 7 64 installers doesn't run on 32 bits. I can assure you that if i could have done this i would have solved this problem long ago... but thanks for the reply.

I've tried installing without the GRUB drive, only the slave in the master slot.... but still getting the same problem . I hope that with the new DVD i'm burning this problem is not gonna happen again.

If new installer fails try wiping the target HD, and as always install with other unplugged: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
