Windows 7: Windows 7 crashed my computer before even installing!

Windows 7 crashed my computer before even installing!

I have a fairly old computer, that, I thought, could do with some speeding up... So i tried Windows 7. I was so excited, but then I found out you couldn't do a direct upgrade from XP... So I had to download Windows Easy Transfer, and that took a couple of hours to finish backing up my files... As I said, my computer's slow! So when it had finished that, I clicked next, or whatever, and it wouldn't let me select my hard drive to install it on.. I finally managed to select it, and clicked next... That's when it crashed... I tried and tried again to reboot it, but to no avail... Any help???

Update BIOS. Acquire chipset driver. Run the MS Upgrade Advisor.

Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor

And by all means, post your System Specs.

Well you have a 64 bit processor but you have the minimum amount of Ram. Right now I belive the only full ISO of 7 still allowed for download is enterprise form the MS site. So you would ned to backup your files to an external HD or cd's and try to do a clean install. And what Mr. antman said. You'll run the windows 7 upgrade advisor just to se if your system can run 7 possibly your best bet is the 32bit. Sorry clciked the second spec box.

I see from your first post that you had xp installed and wanted to do an upgrade install but could not. so you installed win 7 on a differnt partition and then procceded to run windows easy transfer on your xp. Then it crashed when you tried to do the transfer to win 7. Now your pc will not start?
