Win 7 install problems
Yesterday I finally decided to get with the times and stop using WinXP. I got a free Win 7 copy through uni, burned it and started installing. It seems to be going fine but on "extracting files" my computer just freezes. I try it a few more times but the same thing keeps happening so I'm forced to reinstall XP. When I try to select my drive however, setup tells me it's "unknown" and just kicks me out. After unplugging everything and doing this and that I do manage to install XP again.
I still want Win 7 though, so I try a different .iso and now instead of freezing the signal to my monitor just cuts out (which actually started happening with the first disc too). Out of stubbornness I try the 32-bit version instead, which appears to be working since I can just launch it from XP, but after the first reboot it's the same crap again, screen just goes black. At least I got to 27%...
I don't know what to make of it though. Having tried three different disc images it's not likely to be a problem with them, but at the same time I can install XP no problem so I have no idea what kind of hardware problem it might be. I guess I could try Win 8 but I don't know about that.
