    Trying to install windows on Averatec 7100

    I go to install windows and it hangs after it loads drivers right before it gets to the "Welcome to windows setup". I have ran every test, memory, motherboard, max load, hd, and i cant figure it out. I have tried several discs. Tried a usb hard drive and same thing.

    If anyone could help, it would be appreciated.

    what version of windows? if xp, you should use a slipstreamed sp2 or sp3 disc.

    if you still have problems, disable devices in the bios, like audio, lan, etc.

    Are you using a usb keyboard or mouse? If so, try with ones using PS/2 connectors.

    FYI, the Averatec 7100 is a laptop.

    Did you try disabling devices or not? wifi, audio, lan, etc.

    Which diags did you run on the ram and hard drive? I usually use memtest+ and seatools.

    If attempting to install using a standard Windows CD and not Averatec's own recovery disc/disc set,
    Wipe entire HDD with software such as DBAN, including any proprietory recovery partition(s), prior to OS installation attempt.
    "I know nothing."
    Cheers.
