I'm trying to fix my partners laptop.
HP Pavilion G6 -- Pentium P6200 @ 2.13GHz -- 4Gb
I've downloaded a windows 7 64 bit home premium sp1 iso from a link provided on pc world website ( http://goo.gl/uCtJP
I used the official windows USB/DVD maker and made a USB installation on my 4GB flash drive and Burnt a DVD aswell.
I first tryed installing via USB (I had to go into bios, and make usb primary boot because when i pressed f9 to choose what to boot from i couldnt get usb into the list)
It began installing, i formatted the hard drive, to a blank partition began installing, went through first phase, it restarted and went back and tryed installing from scratch again,so i restarted again,this time choosing the hard drive as boot source, it continued installation, then hung and did nothing for over an hour so i restarted but that version was then corrupt.
Began the process again, this time booting from cd and using the DVD I burnt. Got through the first phase again (expanding files, installing features,installing updates, etc) but this time when it restarts it just hangs on in the microsoft corporation screen with the green bar loading for ever.
At the moment i'm trying again from the dvd at its on the first phase, hung at 70% on expanding windows files :'(
Edit:Just got through the first phase of this attempt, its rebooted and is now telling me \windows\system32\drivers
\lsi_fc.sys is missing or corrupt.
Any idea as to why its not installing!?
