Windows 7: Windows 7 Installation Get's Stuck

Windows 7 Installation Get's Stuck

After I format a partition and begin installing, it goes threw all of the steps and gets stuck on "installing updates". I've let it sit for 2 hours and still was stuck. I've tried a different disc, and even tried a usb. It still does the same thing. But I can install ubuntu on it and it works fine. and I don't get the option to turn off upgrades before it begins the installation.

Verify the install DVD using ImgBurn. Load ISO, make sure it says Bootable in text at left, load DVD then Verify it against ISO.

If you downloaded the ISO, check HASH against official Windows 7 HASH. HashTab... is the coolest thing ever!.URL
Windows 7 RTM SHA-1 hash - checksums.URL

If necessary burn a new DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

Next make sure you have the latest BIOS version update from Support Downloads webpage for computer model. Next Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS.URL Then check SATA controller setting: set to AHCI first, then IDE if necessary.

Remove all but 2gb of RAM to try install. Swap RAM, test RAM using memtest86 for 5-6 passes: Memtest86 - Download Page.URL

Test your HD using maker's full diag/repair CD scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.URL

Back up your files, wipe your HD to get the cleanest slate: Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command
