Your post was moved as a favor by the moderators since having it in another thread will bury it and not get the help you need.

Run the Win7 Upgrade advisor: Free Download PC Upgrade Advisor Windows 7 Hardware Programs Issues
This will tell you if you can run Win7 on your laptop, and whether its suitable for 32- or 64-bit.

Where did you get WIn7? Did you burn the DVD yourself?

Exactly what happens and what error message appears when install fails?

Post back the exact wording of the error message,

or enter BIOS setup and change SATA controller to IDE mode.

Set your target HD as second to boot in Boot Priority.

If it is a SATA HD try AHCI setting first, then IDE mode if necessary.

I do not see SATA controller setting you said is set to AHCI. Or is that what you meant by this:
