anyhow, if you have a fresh copy of win7 retail that shouldn't present a problem.
when the computer boots up, go into BIOS and check that your new HDD is recognized.
I've tried to install via Free DOS to get "This program can not be ran in DOS mode" I only have Ubuntu 14.04 and a 256mb usb flash drive. If it loses clock and gives BIOS errors that usually is the coin battery.
Bios currently on 2.6.2 and have a battery error which is bios error.
I had the same issue, the "nomodeset" option worked for me in my Dell Inspiron 1501, with a little workarounds, when I logged in, the vertical lines come back, so I go to tty1 with ctrl-alt-f1 (vertical lines showing too) and then go back to ctrl-alt-f7. Thanks a lot Catharsis, I am having the same problem.
If that doesn't do anything, remove "quiet splash" again and replace it with "nomodeset".
You can start it (if you know how) and read what it is doing on an external screen. Do you feel that your site slowlyness is killing sales or traffic?I just upgraded my hard drive from 120gb to 250gb and now it is not allowing me to install windows 7. However, the way it keeps track of whether this is your machine or not is by remembering the system configuration of your hardware. The drive is okay because it works in another laptop. Opinions You will need to contact either Dell or Microsoft to figure out your license for win7 (I'd say call up dell first) an OEM lincense, which is what dell typically uses, limits your windows installation only to your computer.hopefully this fixed it You fine folk are quite wonderful. The following instructions worked perfectly for me.Thank you very much Buck UPDATE GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset" The above line failed to work.
