Windows 7: Windows 7 Installation Problem

Windows 7 Installation Problem

I have a big problem. I just bought the upgradepack for Windows 7 Home premium. I use XP and I though, hey XP is getting old so I decided to upgrade. But however, When I boot on the CD Drive, First:

It takes a long time before any screens pop up, second:

Sometimes it says that I have no drivers for my CD Drive (my CD drive is LG GH20NS) and it says that I can remove the windows installation CD from my CD drive but when I do... EVERYTHING freezes and I have to reboot, Third:

If I manage to get the installation going it says "copying windows files" and in a matter of seconds it is done. But the is comes to "Expanding Windows files" and there it takes several minutes before it "starts" doing something (It is gray first but after a while it gets black and after that it says "expanding Windows files (0%)...).

After this started I let it run for about 6 hours without looking at it because I was asleep but before I went to sleep I let it run for 2 hours.

Nothing happens at all it is still on "0%" and I just spent about 1300 swe crownes (about $200) on nothing at all.

Please help if you know a soloution

Sincerly yours, David

Welcome!

I encourage you to read my post http://www.sevenforums.com/installat...-problems.html.

Try changing your SATA setting to AHCI, and disconnecting all unnecessary hardware.

Good luck!
