Is the Windows 7 installation procedure on your system freezing? Find out how to solve the problem.
Windows 7 is the latest operating system from Microsoft. This OS comes packed with many features such as Windows Aero (enhanced GUI), Windows Gadgets, Windows Search, Windows Defender, two-way firewall etc. Windows 7 is also more stable than any other previous versions of Windows based operation systems. Windows 7 is not only simple to install and use but also comes with extended support from Microsoft. However, some users might face some issues when installing Windows 7. These problems include system freezing at the startup screen of the installation. Such problems might be because of many reasons such as incompatibility of the system hardware, malware infections within the partitions of the hard disk, not enough space in the hard disk of the system, problems with the installation disk in use, issues with the optical drive in use and so on. Such problems would prevent users from installing the OS and users would be forced to manually reboot the system which would damage the internal components in the long run.
Following details mentioned below gives users more information regarding tips to fix and prevent Windows 7 installation issues:
- Verify system configuration
- Check space on hard disk
- Check authenticity of OS
Verify system configuration
Windows 7 has some system requirements. If the computer on which you are installing Windows 7 does not have the minimum requirements such as RAM and graphics card (1 GB and Direct X 9 capable), then the installation might freeze at startup. Users having Windows 7 freeze during installation are advised to check the configuration of the system and upgrade the system if required. Verifying the configuration of the system and running the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor would help prevent such issues.
Check space on hard disk
Windows 7 is a comparatively large operating system and this OS requires some amounts of space on the hard disk. If the system does not have enough space in the hard disk, the installation would freeze. Users installing Windows 7 facing installation freeze problems are suggested to check the space on the hard disk and then carry out the installation. Formatting the hard disk after backing up all data would help users complete the installation and prevent any problems.
The installation of Windows 7 on your system might be freezing because the installation disk being used is not genuine. Windows 7 requires all system files in the installation disk to be error free and problems with the installation disk would directly affect the installation problem. Users are requested to check the authenticity of the installation disk prior to the installation to prevent such problems and if the disk is found at fault, it would have to be replaced with genuine one to solve the issue.
