    Windows 7 Installation Nightmare
    « on: May 18, 2010, 10:57:34 PM »
    Okay, I have a laptop with Windows Vista and I'm installing Windows 7. Both 64 bit. Laptop didn't really have any data on it I needed so instead of just updating I chose the advanced install option. It worked fine until it got to 'Completing Installation' phase where it stalled. I left it on overnight and still nothing. My Windows Vista doesn't work any longer and Windows 7 isn't properly installed either. I'm trying to reinstall now hoping it will magically work but I'm not going to be too hopeful and I don't want a useless machine.

    Help? I'm not sure what sort of information you need. I'm fairly experienced with computer hardware but don't have a good grasp of this sort of thing.

        Hi, it's working now though I haven't done anything differently then I did last evening when I tried to fix it the first time.

        I'm sorry for wasting your time.
