Windows 7: Erased hard drive to reinstall Win 7 but now won't reinstall

02 Jun 2016   #11

Windows 7 Home 64bit

I erased W7 Home from older DELL Inspiron 1545 laptop 64-bit, I was trying to Install Chrome OS, but failed.
While trying to install Chrome I was able to boot into Chrome from USB flash, but was not able to install it on the HDD.

I am using fresh install W7, I already used it on my other PC successfully.
It is not loading from USB flash (USB is set first), just blank dark screen after BIOS.

Any advice for me.....?

Windows 7 Home 64bit

Problem got solved after many attempts.......!!!!!!!

I used Rufus-2.9 to create W7 installer and the File System was set to FAT32 by default.
I recreated the installer by setting File System to NTFS.

My DELL Inspiron 1545 laptop 64-bit booted into W7 without any issues.

After reinstall, W7 says my 2nd hard drive is in RAW
OK, so I have 2 hard drives, an SSD for my OS, and a 2nd drive that I store all my files on. I had to do a reinstall this morning, and since I understand W7 has issues installing sometimes when there's 2 discs connected, I disconnected the power and sata cable from my 2nd drive. So I install...
