hi guys,

new here. i tried installing win 7 pro upgrade from student discount onto a seperate 1tb drive. i have vista premium and was doing a dual boot. files would load but after that i would get this error: winload.exe error. tried installing it alone onto the 1tb seagate drive, removing the vista drive but still the same error. remove every peripheral and 2 stick of ram but still the same error. system is intel q6600 on an asus p5ke-wifi with 4 gig of 8500 ocz ram.

also tried repairing my vista installation but the same error appears.

any help will greatly be appreciated.

If it is an external USB drive, MS has specifically precluded installing Win7 to a USB external drive.

edit: I see you fixed it IDE>SATA. Others with this error may find it will boot up leaving the install disk in the drive, then you can run a Repair Install (Upgrade over itself) from desktop
