Windows 7: PC dont respond to Win 7 install

PC dont respond to Win 7 install

Made a post before about my exciting adventures now for 4 days with the Windows 7 installation. Im gonna summon it all up for you again so you will get an idea of what we have tried.

My friend has a PC that we have tried to install Win 7 on nowfor some days. Its a new PC, and he has never had issuse with it untill we started to install the Win 7 on it.

The biggest issue is that it freezes during the installation process when we boot from the CD. The whole PC just freezes and becomes unresponsive to the installation. Happends most time during the extraction files part.

We have tried
  • New RAMs, made diagnostics of the old ones as well, but is dosent show anything at all.
  • New DVD driver, just in case that is the 1 to blame. But same problem.
  • New graphiccard.
  • New HDD
Even when we have basically excluded all the "bad hardware" and tried with new stuff the results all is the same.
Bin in contact with a computer friend of mine, and he cant get what the problem should be.

Just to be sure I moved the HDD over to my PC and made a installation with out any problems at all.

Havent tried to install from a USB stick yet. Just wanted to exclude all the other "maybes" before.

So if you have any idears how to proceed. Please share =)

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

Maybe one of these suggestions will help. Give particular attention to the freeze section.
