Yes it recognizes the processor and memory.

What can I do next?


Thank you
Is the HD showing in BIOS?

When I try the Safe Mode Option I still get the blue screen unfortunately.

I forgot to mention that my netbook crashed when my brother tried to install Windows 7 Professional

Hi theog,

I've looked at the BIOS Setup Utility but it doesn't show HD (the only thing I see is about Hard Disk Security).

I hope this doesn't mean it's broken or anything like that?!

Ok just to make sure we know what happened, you had Win7 pre-install (Home Premium?) and your brother tried to install Win7 Pro?

Was the pro version an upgrade that he had available?
do you have a DVD drive on your netbook?
if not, how was he trying to install? through Win 7?

OEM upgrades are not interchangeable. you would only be able to upgrade from one version to another if you have the same OEM.

This might have caused the issue. When it crashed, what happened, as much detail as possible please.


I don't know if the attempted install would change any of your BIOS settings, but it is worth checking. You can probably reset the BIOS to its default settings.

If your HD is not showing BIOS, all startup repair options are out.

Theog, Is there a hard-disk repair or checker Sandra can download and put on a flash disk? maybe the HD is just not being recognized? or maybe Ubuntu might see the drive?

Not if the HD is not showing in BIOS.

Only thing I can think of is Ultimate Boot CD: Ultimate Boot CD - Overview

You can also put this on a USB drive and boot from it. You can test the Hard drive with one of the programs on the CD.

I dont know as much about this, there are a lot of programs for troubleshooting in that program

Edit(just saw your post): Ok thanks Theog, I was wondering about that.
