I have a HDD with a SATA port in it. It's 1TB and also it is the only HDD I have in my pc. I disabled Onboard ATA controller and Onboard USB 3.0 Controller and now it doesn't say that drives not found but windows still freezes at starting logo

I think you have to set BIOS properly.
- Onboard SATA must be enabled if you have a disk connected to it.
- SATA must be set to AHCI (unless you have a RAID array).
- You must disable Secure boot and Fast boot (but don't think you have this option)
- You must disable JMicron® JMB368 controller (for PATA disks).

RAM: 6Gb
HDD: Seagate 1TB
Video card: Gtx 260

-Onboard SATA is enabled
-I tried both ACHI and RAID ( nothing on either)
-Couldn't find Securo boot but I found Secure Virtual Machine mode which I disabled, also I couldn't find Fast boot but I found Quick boot which I also disabled.
- And finally I couldn't find an option where to disable JMicron® JMB368 controller

So, I tried to start with these settings but still the same problem as it was.

Restart installation again.
Boot from Win 7 installation disk, go to install - Advanced - delete ALL partitions - proceed.

Are you using a DVD or a USB flash disk?

As you haven't edit your profile with ALL your specs, we don't know what brand of Win 7 64 you have and what language you use.

Megahertz07 - I tried the Windows that you suggested to use but it is still the same problem. I don't even know what else to do maybe you have other ideas?

Layback Bear - I can't even finish install Windows so now there is no point of thinking about how to activate them.
