Windows 7/8 Issue along Harddrive
I'm facing 2 issues at the moment when i need my laptop the most.
1. I bought HP Envy 6 1106TX sleekbook which came with pre-installed Windows 8. I wanted a clean install of Windows 7/8 over it.
I bought the 7 DVD & Tried installing, it asked for 'Load Drivers' when i loaded the drivers, it said that 32bits are OK while 64Bit drivers must be Signed as Unsigned Drivers are not allowed.
I go ahead with 32bit & deleted & made partition again. But I cannot install Windows 64 bit on it :/
What's the issue? is it the Harddrive? Is UeFI/GPT & all locked into Harddrive? I buy a new Harddrive & it'll be fixed?
2. Now there's nothing on my Laptop, So i tried recovery with my Recovery disks. The recovery was successful. But the issue now is that, now when after recovery, I turn on Laptop. the windows 8 Logo comes & the laptop restarts, and keeps restarting.
i had turned on Legacy Enabled & turned off Secure Boot, Because if they were on, My external optical drive not available in Drive options.
Your help would be alot appreciated.
