Has the disc been tested on another machine ?

If it`s asking for drivers it`s probably not a proper burn job.

Tell me more! What is happening ? Give me more info about this desktop? What was the Old HD ? What is the new HD ? Do you know how to get into Bios setup ?

The installer is always the problem with that error. All SATA drivers are in the disk. You need to burn your licensed version to DVD using ImgBurn, not use a buggy AIO.

Where did you get Win7? How are you activating it? Answer before we go any further.

You may need a BIOS update to recognize the 1tb HD.

The drivers are almost all in the Win7 installer or delivered quickly after install via optional Windows Updates, but you'll need to buy a copy of Win7 first.

You can't just install any Version of Windows. You have to have the one that matches the Product Key that you have. Where did you get the Product Key and what version of Windows came with it?

You can`t use a Vista key to activate Windows 7. But if you manage to install it you have 30 days. And even that can be extended. Why don`t you just buy windows since you don`t have a key.
