I have a branded HP Pavilion t860i which has been upgraded with a new graphics card,RAM etc.Anyway i had installed windows 7 a couple of months back and used it for 2 or 3 months with no problem. Then my SMPS got shot which also destroyed my motherboard, so I got both both of them replaced.
I bought a new gigabyte G31M-ES2L and an SMPS.Since the motherborad was shot ,i had to install the OS and installed XP SP3 with no problems.But when i try to install Windows 7 OR Vista an error shows up either during installation or at beginning or even after completing(since i had done the installation numerous times)
" Due to recent hardware or software changes..........................................
The files are ntkrnpcpl.exe something like that, winload.exe)either one of these shows up
Windows cannot verify the driver
signature of this file "
After numerous restarts because of this message appearing the setup automatically rollbacks.
I have 2 HDD.One is a 160 GB Maxtor HD the other a 250 Seagate HD. In the Maxtor there is windows XP SP3 it is used by my dad and the seagate is used by me which also has XP SP3.I am trying to install it my 250GB HD replacing my XP.I have even tried to install it in the maxtor HD but same thing happens.I don't think there are any problems with the harddisks or even the DVD drives.
So is this because of the motherboard? Won't it even support 7 or Vista even though it says it does?
And i have tried installing it numerous ways possible from my Harddisks,from my two DVD writer drives: one is LG and the other is HP and every single time the same error pops up.
What am I supposed to do here?Please help
