Reasons why a PC won't boot after upgrading to Windows® 7
Why will a PC not boot after being upgraded to Windows 7?
Windows 7 is the newest operating system that comes with a lot of features. With the help of these features Windows 7 will offer seamless performance. Windows 7 replaced its predecessor Windows Vista which had several problems like pop-ups, notifications, and compatibility issues. The taskbar feature in Windows 7 will combine the Quick Launcher toolbar with a usual taskbar which will allow you to launch two applications at a time. The Jump List feature has the ability to choose between actions. Home Group, Snap, Magnifier, Windows Live Essentials are some of the other new features of Windows 7. The booting process of Windows 7 has got certain requirements, it require Basic Input/output System (BIOS), Master Boot Record (MBR), boot sector and NTLDR file so as to work systematically. If any of the above components are corrupt due to an improper shutdown, due to incompatible device drivers and virus infection then the process will stop.
Various reasons as to why a PC will not boot if upgraded to Windows 7:
- Due to incompatible drivers
- Virus infection
- Improper installation
Due to incompatible drivers
The drivers are software programs which allow devices to communicate with the operating system. For different operating systems there are different versions of drivers and there are chances of errors when these drivers are not compatible with an upgraded operating system. As Windows 7 is the latest operating system, the drivers that are available for Windows 7 will be different when compared to other operating systems.
Viruses are considered to be major trouble. When viruses are present in your system they will create a lot of problems like file corruption, slow performance and restart the computer on its own. Then, if you are upgrading your operating system to Windows 7, then due to the presence of viruses sometimes your computer may fail to boot.
The proper installation of your operating system is very important. While installing the operating system you will have to follow instructions given by the manufacturer or you can refer to the user manual and install the operating system. Improper installation will cause boot up issues. Then after installing the operating system you may forget to restart your PC and this can also create boot up problems in your PC.
