I am having a problem during windows 7 installation.
I have 2 identical notebooks, Dell inspiron 1420. In one of them I had no problem, I could install windows 7 and it works very well. There are 2 differences between the both of them:
- We have changed the lcd screen of the one with the installation problems (don`t think it could be a problem) and it used to have dual boot because it used to have the latest ubuntu OS and Windows XP.
First, it didn't want to erase the partitions, and we had to format the notebook with the XP Disc, erasing the full disc and lose all the data of the partition without OS.
Then, when we could start the installation, it all worked out perfectly untill the installation is in its final step (completing installation). The wi-fi button shines and the installation stays still.
We have tried many things...flashing the bios, restore its fabric default settings, check HDD for failures, connect directly to the internet with a cable just in case that the installation needed to update, downloading the iso again directly from microsoft page and burning a new DVD (twice), etcetera.
The weirdest thing is that there are 2 notebooks, exactly the same ones, and one of them works perfectly.
If somebody have any idea, we will appreciate to be informed, because we've run out of ideas, and we`d hate having to go back to XP.
Thanks a lot!
