Why is it such a hassle to install WIndows 7 on a netbook?
I have a Toshiba T110-121 netbook that I am trying to install Windows 7 onto (from a portable DVD drive).
- I have installed a 120GB Sandisk SSD (that I got from a deal link on this site last week).
- I had to replace the original drive as it kept failing.
I have the product key on the netbook but am not sure how to go about using it as apparently the key is only valid for that build and wont work on another copy of that same Win 7 version
- When I try to boot from CD i get Cannot boot from CD/error code 5.
- When I try installing WIn 7 from Win XP I get - error cannot install folder...
I don't know what is going on but this seems to happen with other netbooks and old PC motherboards as well. As if the motherboard BIOS cannot recognise the boot program for Windows 7?
Any advice on how to get Windows 7 on?
