4GB of RAM is borderline. You can go either way.

I know this is an old thread but I just had the same thing. In the end what sorted it was - in parted magic I deleted partitions. Then partitioned to NTFS. Then went into the drive wipe section and wiped the Mir not the whole drive - just the mbr). Then went to install W7 and just the usual partitions . So it is something to do with the way the disk has been formatted previously, the master boot record and possibly disk and bios thingies. It was a new drive in mine that had previously had Linux on but had deleted partitions previously. Anyway - it was an easy fix and before that I couldn’t load windows 10 at all.

FYI: PerfectDisk Pro trial version is excellent for resizing partitions, especially shrinking Windows OS that places system data at the end of the partition that normally cannot be moved otherwise. If you shrink the partition without moving that data, your system will not boot and the data is lost. (I experienced this completing one of my college course study lessons & after much ado, arrive at perfect disk)

BTW: if you install and uninstall PerfectDisk Pro with Revo Uninstaller, you can use the trial version again if you ever need to.
