Different installation issues and steps to fix them are discussed below:

Low hard disk space
You may face installation failure for Windows 7 if there is not enough disk space on your system. The partition that you are trying to install may be small or not enough to install Windows 7. In such a situation you may have to format the system and create a larger partition to complete the installation successfully.
Corrupt installation files
When you opt for a download or an upgrade you need to make sure that you download the installation file from an authorized website. A pirated version of the file can cause installation issues or even a virus on the system. So you need to make sure that the file is downloaded to a virus free system from an authorized website to avoid any kind of error or compatibility issues on your system.
You may find it difficult to activate Windows 7 if you do not have a genuine license key. You need to check the installation CD sleeve for the license key. A license key is an alphanumeric 16 digit key. You need to be careful while typing in the key to complete the activation successfully. You need to activate the product within 30 days from the day of installation or the installation file will get corrupt. You may be using a product key which does not match the version of Windows 7 that is installed on your computer. You need to check the product key to make sure it is for the version you are trying to activate.
