Resolving Windows® 7 Installation Problems
Having problems in installing Windows 7? Find out how to solve them.
Windows 7 is the latest and best operating system from Microsoft. This operating system is much better than previous versions of Windows based operating systems and it comes packed with many advanced features and options. Windows Aero, Windows Defender, Windows Gadgets, Windows Search, etc. are some of the many features of Windows 7. Windows 7 also requires very little system resources to run which makes it ideal for home as well as office use. Windows 7 can be installed very easily on any computer using the installation disc. If users do not have an optical drive, a Windows 7 bootable USB device can be used to install the operating system without any problems. However, there are some problems that may come up while installing Windows 7. These include installation freeze, installation process termination, installation taking too much time, etc. Users may also get error messages notifying that Windows 7 cannot be installed.
Following points talk about the tips to fix Windows 7 installation issues:
- Verify operating system authenticity
- Check system configuration
- Check hard disk space
Verify operating system authenticity
Windows 7 requires all system files to be intact during the installation. If the Windows 7 installation disc is illegitimate, then some system files may be missing which will result in corruption or problems during the installation process. So, you are recommended to verify the authenticity of the operating system and if required carry out the installation with another disc to solve the problem.
Check system configuration
Every operating system has some minimum system requirements. If your system does not have the minimum hardware configuration to support Windows 7, then the installation will freeze at the initial stages itself. So, you are advised to check the system configuration, such as RAM and graphics card (1GB and direct X 9 capable), and if they are not meeting the requirements, they need to be upgraded to solve the problems.
When an operating system is being installed, large numbers of system files are copied from the installation media to the system and this will require some amount of free hard disk space. If the hard disk on the system does not have at least 16 GB free space, then issues will come up with the installation process. Users having Windows 7 installation problems are suggested to check the hard disk space and then free up some space to solve the issues.
