Cant install windows 7 on new hard drive on same computer using factory image iso. Seagate barracuda 1TB 7200rpm

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Cant install windows 7 on new hard drive on same computer using factory image iso. The factory image installs just fine. Its only after the reboot when it says "windows is setting up devices". then the install fails saying "Windows could not be installed on the current hardware configuration". Iv tried 5 times to get it to install and it fails every time. Second thing I tired was going into the BIOS and changing the setting to use IDE instead of AHCI. This results on a blue screen of death on start up.

YES I HAVE CHANGED BOOT PRIORITIES IN THE BIOS.

Anyone got any ideas? Windows wouldn't be detecting new hardware because the mobo , graphics card, sound card are all the same as when I got the computer. New HDD is even same brand. Any help?

Specs:
Seagate barracuda 1TB 7200rpm 6 GPS, Seagate barracuda 1TB 7200rpm 3 GPS
Intel H57 Motherboard
Intel i7 860 Quad core 3.22 GHZ
8 GIGS DDR3
1 Terabyte HDD 7200 RPM's
Thermaltake TR2 RX Black Widow 850 WATT PSU
XFX AMD Radeon HD 6970 2GB

When you boot off the OS disk, and are in the window where you can choose hard drives / partitions. Delete all partitions so you see all the memory as unallocated. Then click create partition and hit ok with the default size selected. it should have a large partition and one with a few hundred megabytes of data. Install OS on the partition you just created. Sorry I'm really bad at explaining but hopefully you get it.

This is like your third thread. You mentioned factory image for te first time. Unless your computer is exactly the same as the image of the first compute it came from, the install will fail, because all the drivers from the computer the image was made from are different than your rig.

Get it? You can't use a image from another computer with different parts. You need a new retail or otherwise copy of windows 7

You could however order the disc from the manufacture for $20 ish. Then use the discs to install the OS. Call the company and tell them the HD failed and you need the discs to install windows on the new drive. Depending on the company they may charge you or they may not. It cost me $20 to get the discs from Sony for a laptop that the HD failed on.

I'm willing to bet, the memory, or Chipset or something critical to the system is different than the factory iso, and it's causing your blue screen. Take out your new HDD at the very least and leave you old one in by itself. Put in the Old Memory if you replaced it.

The memory alone, will cause a blue screen if the iso image is forcing a driver to run a different memory pair.

make sure ever singe solitary thing is the same as it was on the factory image...if you get a successful instal...then put in your new HDD and Memory or whatever else hardware you added or changed.
