Hi, I have a problem,
My computer is currently configured with Windows XP with an Intel storage controller configured to “RAID” mode in the BIOS which I have been using for a while now. I have decided to install Windows 7 but it keeps bringing the error message below. What could be the problem?
Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer's hardware.
Get an error when i try to install Windows 7
This error might caused by the BIOS itself. Compatibility issue also plays a big factor here. They must be in same model and manufacturer.
You can upgrade the BIOS – Basic Input-Output system up tot he latest version. Then go to the BIOS to activate the file "Load Fail-Safe Defaults" to function properly.
All computer components, like SATA has to be compatible with the BIOS mode. Hardware installed must have an upgraded version compatible and ready for Windows 7 installations. These are a common mistakes by users when they want to upgrade their windows from Windows XP to Windows 7. But it is doable to install Windows 7 coming from the lower version of Windows.
