Installation of windows 7 freeze on my laptop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My father has a Toshiba laptop with windows 8 pre installed on it. He hates windows 8, so i'm trying to install the windows 7 DVD that i'm not using anymore.

I'm using the booting from the DVD method.

As usual, when i restart the laptop, i press any key to boot from the DVD, then i see a black screen with a bar ''windows is loading files'', so far so good, no problems. When the windows 7 logo appear and is loading, it suddently freeze, and then nothing happens. I have to shut down the PC and try again. But it does the same thing every time and no matther how long i wait.

I searched for this problem on google, didn't find any solution. Anyone have ever seen something like that ?

Having been through a similar ordeal back during Christmas of 2012 I came across the following article that helped me out;

http://www.pcworld.com/article/2015107/downgrading-from-windows-8-to-7-what-you-need-to-know.html

Of special note in my circumstance was disabling the Windows 8 secure boot feature (see page 2 of the article).

Then I went one step further and before I attempted the fresh installation of Windows 7 I also used GParted to erase and format my destination drive.

The only other thing different is that I always use a bootable USB drive for installing Windows now. It's faster and seems less troublesome than DVD drives do sometimes.
