any one with a decent idea?
i got a way round this, i took the hard drive out and put it in another laptop and installed it there, then put it back in the other laptop to finish it and it works a treat, dont worry about drivers as once its finish it will connect to the internet and get the drivers it needs, good luck
or if it is a sata drive put it in your pc and install
What's the Type number of your laptop please?

type number??
Look on back. Usually a 7 digit number that identifies the exact spec and should allow me to pin point the correct SATA controller drivers.
Just put windows 7 on ours ( well huns did )
Your laptop has pent 1.4g 512 ram ?
Quite an old laptop hun? 2004 edition?

Before u tried installing u should have got the windows 7 upgrade advisor, run it on your old OS to see if your laptop could take windows 7...
