Windows 7: Programs won't download.

Windows 7 upgraded from Vista 32bit

[QUOTE=gregrocker;2410354]Really glad to hear it Zuko. You had me worried there for a minute.

Congratulations and nice work!

If there are any other issues just let us know. Otherwise once it's set up and running best be sure to save a WIn7 backup image so you can easily recover in minutes in the future.

And when ready you can mark the thread Solved at top.[/QUOTE)
SPOKE TO SOON: After finally being able to re-install my windows 7 and getting a new start, I downloaded adobe and printer and just finished Java and rebooted and now my computer is stuck on Starting Windows. I don't know why but now I'm wondering if there is something wrong with the electronics.

Did you run the Dell Diagnostics to test your hardware as I suggested below? You were to see if it still boots to run before reinstalling so you'd know whether you should delete all partitions during install or save the Dell OEM Diagnostics Tools partition. The Recovery Partition will not run after reinstall. So which partitions did you save?

If you deleted the Dell Diagnostics partition without testing whether it will boot and run as suggested, you can run the diagnostics from Dell PC Diagnostics | Dell US . This will give you a firm diagnosis of your hardware so we can move onto the Win7 install.

If you stick with the tools and methods given in the tutorial - based on tens of thousands of installs we've helped with here - then you will get and keep a perfect install for as long as you do.
