Resolve issues while installing Windows® 7
What are the common installation issues of Windows 7 and tips to solve them?
Windows 7 is the latest Operating System released from Microsoft. This OS has got more improved and the latest features when we compare that with the earlier versions of Windows. During the Windows 7 installation, the setup would hang when it reached 27 or 33 per cent and would say that “Cannot Copy Files to Local Drive”. This error might be due to the presence of issues with DVD drive. Sometimes when you perform the installation, you would receive the message that “Setup Cannot Communicate with One of the Devices Connected to Your Computer”. In that case you need to check that the drivers for the drive and the USB port are working. You have to update the drivers for that. You can also try to restart the system. If there are viruses present in the system, that may also cause issues during installation. You have to delete all the viruses and try to install Windows 7.
Below given points are some of the tips to solve issues during the installation of Windows7:
- Solving DVD and drive issues
- Use defragmenter
- Compatibility issues
Solving DVD and drive issues
The issue might be due to presence of scratches present in the installation DVD. You need to check for that and if there are, you would have to replace that. If the DVD is not readable, you need to clean the DVD using any solvent. Then you need to look for DVD drive. You have to use any of the lens cleansers in order to clean the lens for DVD drive. If the DVD drive issue is not solved, try to use other DVD drive and copy installation files to some USB. Then try to install Windows 7 again.
If there is no issue with the installation DVD, try to copy installation files to local disk. If you continued to get the error messages, it may mean that the hard disk would have some of the system files which are unmovable and they would cause obstruction in installation. You have to then use defragmenter in order to defragment the drive. After the defragmentation you could be able to install Windows7 without any issue. If again the problem is not solved you need to format the partition and try installation.
It is seen that most of the Windows 7 installation error occurs because of compatibly issues. If the hardware or the software present in the computer has got any issues, it would cause the errors. So you have to check the Windows 7 Compatibility Advisor before you are going to install Windows 7. You need to make sure that your system has all requirements. If not, try to upgrade the system to that requirement and then try to install Windows 7.
