Windows 7: Ultimate 32bit Crashing on reinstall

Ultimate 32bit Crashing on reinstall

My pc started acting all slow and dragging along one day so I decided to do a complete re-install. I suspected a bad HDD but try this 1st .. The installation gets as far at expanding files and then it seems to crash halfway through .. I attached a screenshot .. Tried re-install 5 times all same result .. A few of the times windows couldnt partition the drive .. It's a 80gb sata drive .. Any ideas? It's urgent .. Thanks

Where did you get Windows 7? Did you burn the DVD yourself?

If so download the latest official Windows 7 installer for your licensed version and burn to DVD or write to flash stick using the tool provided here to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If this fails try wiping the HD first before install with Diskpart Clean Command, after backing up all files: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

I suspect it's a hdd error .. I need a larger hdd anyway so I'm just gonna go buy one and see what happens? How likely is it to be a Ram or M/B problem? Hdd seems more likely to me.

You can find out for sure by running the HD maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, followed by Disk Check from the installer's System Recovery Options Command Line.

Regarding the disk: you can download an ISO and burn it to make an install disk.

Regarding the drive: you can check it using disk tools running on a USB stick or on a DVD disk.

I tried install again to be sure and I got further into the install after doing a full format but I get a different error message now.. This is getting strange .. Photo attached

Download the install .iso file as Greg suggested on another PC and burn a bootable DVD or make a bootable USB flash drive. It appears you have a corrupted install media or someone give you a pirated one.

cyphir,
Sounds to me like you want to buy a new disk.

If so, then go ahead and buy it. they are cheap.

80 GB is rather small anyway.
