    Error while installing Windows 7 on Windows XP System.

    I have inserted Windows the windows 7 installation DVD in my Windows XP system after the installation process starts, the machine automatically restarts and then it comes up with the Recovery mode. I have tried many times but the same problem is repeating always. What should I do now in order to solve this problem?

    Hi dear friend................follow the below guide lines to resolve your issue

    first of all check whether the windows 7 DVD working properly or not

    whenever the disk boot fails ..... then the above problem appears ....

    So, check whether the boot file in the DVD working or not

    after that insert the DVD in to the ROM and restart the PC ....and press DELETE key while it starting up

    now choose BOOT menu and select the Boot option 1 as CD/DVD then press F10 key to save the settings .....and select OK then

    press ENTER key to boot from DVD ..... after that the installation process will begins.......... then follow the onscreen instructions...........

    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    hi, after reading your problem i came to understand that your windows 7 DVD is not working. try to use some other windows 7 dvd.

    before all this check your hardware whether your system is capable of installing windows 7 OS or not ?

    minimum hardware required is 1Ghz processor,
    1GB RAM.
    Directx9 Graphics.
    16GB free space in hard disk.

    if you have all these you can install windows 7 in your system.

    happy to assist you

    The possible issue can be due system requirements for windows 7 .

    So, please check for these requirements before you proceed further ,

    If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:


    • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
    • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
    • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
    • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

    There shouldnot be such problems unless something wrong in your system or the installer.

    Does your system conform to the minimum requirment of the Windows 7 installation ?

    1 GHz processor/1-2 GB ram/16-20 GB hdd free space/DirectX 9 minimum with WDDM D V 1 minimum.

    Or chefk the software wheathere it is Retail version, OEM version or something else.

    Contact www.microsoft.com and check the status of your software and leagality or compatibility, which they will verify once the product code is provided.
