If you have another machine connect this hdd via usb.
Use disk management and delete all the partitions.
Put the hdd back in the new build and install w7.
Or download partition wizard, put it on a cd and boot it up.
alright so basically I built a budget gaming rig using some used parts i bought off of ebay and some i had laying around.
Intel DQ57TM (latest bios update)
Hd-7770 2gb asus
8gb axiom 1333 DDR3 ram
thermaltake 650w power supply
Alright so I know the powersupply is overkill but i was in need and it was on sale.
I can get into windows xp fine that I had on a hard drive, but when i tried to install windows 7 (downloaded from Microsoft) I cant get anywhere past "starting windows" and when I boot with safe mode it just hangs on "driver/disk.sys" and then automatically shuts down, I have all ready messed with tons of bios options and nothing seems to help me!
Please if you have any suggestions leave them for me to reader barbecue anything is helpful at this point.
