Windows 7: help installing win7 pls

help installing win7 pls

Im having issues with 32 bit windows 7 system.

It first started freezing, couldn't reach the main desktop screen.
Tried doing the boot priority but it froze many times.

I changed the RAM and now it does not freeze and lets me go much further then used to before.
But im now having different issues and it looks like my internal hard drive is gone bad.
Maybe some of you will know.

As i was starting to install win 7, it reached the screen where it asks where do you want to install windows 7? But it was empty and showed no partitions.

This is what i see in the following pictures and is now asking me to browse for folder to select driver. Im not sure what to do from here.

You have to re install windows. Why do you want to install 32 bit ?

Please fill in your specs.

It shows that your HDD is not detected.... Try to connect all power and IDE cables to HDD properly..
Hope it helps

Hi TechSeven,

I am thinking that you need to:
* Try formatting the HDD through windows Disk Management, and see if you can see the HDD in Select Drive to be Installed.
^ Use another computer for that.
* Try switching from AHCI to IDE in BIOS Set-up.
* Last resort is to buy a New HDD or SSD. Maybe your Drive has died.

also, If you want to install 64bit Windows, I would suggest using a SATA HDD.
