can you tell us if you downloaded windows seven or purchased it. The problem can be caused by a badly burned dvd, or by some hardware issue. Could you tell us about your computer? Was windows 7 on the cumpouter when you bought it, or was vista on it?

I have installed it even from a friends cd which tends to be a Genuine one, but i end up with the sameeee problem "windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computers hardware"...upgrade and custom, NTFS volume....60GB to 70Gb Hd for it....and that's all i have to say.....turned off legacy mode from setup utility......SATA controller to compatible mode forces vista to crash on boot, but still i did it and 7 shows the same problem at the end....updated my BIOS, didn't work. Restored my comp to a factory setting...Doesn't work either.....I don't think my video card may be the problem....ATI Catalyst Radeon HD 3650. I don't think it's my hard drive that is faulty, other versions of windows works welll!!!!
i went and asked the store for help, they **** me saying it works even on the oldest computers that run 1.8Ghz processors, why won't it work on mine???
