trying to install win 7 pro on a second drive hard withwin 8 on the first hard disk

I have a pc with win 8 is installed on the primary drive. I bought a win 7 pro os to install on a second disc. (I bought a new pc after my old win xp but I have a little fuzzy) I formatted the second hd as a gpt in 8 victory drive and when I go into the bios and make the cd as disc player starter set main first, even break, win 7 will come, I hit a button, he said: it's the installation files , four colors swirl around and stopping and there he sits and go beyond.  What has changed the setings bios need? It's a motherboard of acer with amd a6 5400 dual core with 16 GB of ram. can anyone help?

Any reason you to format GPT?

Delete the partition on the second disk, and leave it as "Unallocated", and then install Windows 7.

For reference: how Dual Boot Windows 8 with Windows 7
Your newly purchased computer or one you just build a Windows 8 is installed. Now, you want to install Windows 7 as second operating system create a computer to dual-boot and you giving the best of both worlds.

  • Trying to install win xp pro on the Satellite A200 - TH1 (PSAE3C)

    Hi all
    I just bought this laptop. It came with vista. I want to install xp pro on it, I mean keep vista as well. So I made the partition and assigned 72 GB for xp pro. Now the problem is that xp pro install cd does not recognize the hard drive. It says no hard drive present.

    It is a SATA drive. So I did some searching on Google on it and found that xp pro doesn't have SATA drivers and this is why you may not see the hard drive. I need to install the SATA drivers with xp pro by pressing F6... and blah blah. Given that this laptop didn't come with the disk, then I found on some forums to include drivers with xp pro cd and make an iso image and try to run it.

    I tried several times but each time it gives me error this cable is broken. Is someone can pls let me know what is the problem? And also if anyone can guide me to get the right drivers for my SATA drive and intel 965 PM chipset... If I go the Intel Web site.

    They are all. EXE files. I want the driver files only, so I can insert them into the xp cd. Thanks for your help and guidance adavance.

    Hi all

    I was able to get the drivers... now, I came across another hurdle... When I put the XP installation cd (which is an ISO bootable disk... This includes the xp sp2 and realtek nic drivers) it gives me message that searching for media... RTL8100E/8101E v1.02... test failed... Check if the cable is connected...

    Any ideas? What should I do now? Any suggestion would be appreciated... Thank you

    Hi all.

    I'm started to get really desperate here! I just bought my new Satellite A100-211 and now I want to install my own copy of Windows XP Professional (as the laptop comes with XP Home). But, when I try to boot from my Win Xp Pro CD (with no SP1 or SP2 integrated), I get a blue screen of the STOP just as the installation application reached the phase "the installation program starts Windows! The STOP message says something about a file named "pci.sys".

    I don't know what the problem is or how to install XP Pro! It should be so simple! I even tried the SATA drivers from intel and load the Windows XP Pro install the program installation (F6) with a floppy, but I always get the same blue screen at the same stage of the installation.

    Can someone help me please? Can someone explain how to install Win XP Pro on this laptop?

    For 5 years, Microsoft made it fairly easy for users of the Windows 7 operating system to get reinstall media. If you have lost your support disc or installation retail collection; either it has been damaged or defective; You can download a copy of the edition that you have licensed from a membership site called Digital River. More recently, Microsoft ended the availability to reinstall media that you can download as a. File ISO in Digital River, which is a digital reproduction of an optical disc.

    It was particularly convenient for people who could not easily get the manufacturer's recovery media, did not want to pay the fees required to get or preferred a clean configuration without the software packaged manufacturers or even a recovery partition does not work. It's easy to use, all you had to do was reinstall and reactivate using the product key located on the certificate of authenticity and download all the drivers on the manufacturers website.

    Given that this option is no longer available, what are your options? See the article for more details:

    How to: What are my options for Windows 7 reinstall media?

  • I want to install Win 7 Pro 64 bytes on Win 7 Pro 32 bytes.

    I want to install Win 7 Pro 64 bytes on Win 7 Pro 32 bytes. I would lose my Microsoft Office 2007 and files, 3rd party software. If so is there a way to save them? How can I backup my Outlook pst. file? Is that all I have to do it before I try it?

    You cannot go directly from the 32-bit to 64-bit.  The best thing to do would be to create a new partition and install the 64-bit version in that.  You will have access to the data on the partition of 32 bits, but will need to install your applications in the 64 bit one.

    Good luck.

    Former title: I am trying to install Windows 8 Pro using a burned dvd ios

    I am trying to install Windows 8 Pro using an ios burned dvd and I can't spend getting ready files for installation.  It is located at 1% or 2%, and then I get the 0x8007025d error code.  This is getting very frustrating.  Tried to install more than 4 hours. I'm starting to think I should have bought the dvd for Windows 8.

    Hello! And welcome to the Microsoft Forums!

    From my experience with several ISOs of Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, and even 10, I can tell you that the 0x8007025d error means that the installation media is corrupted.

    This type of error appears on the official Microsoft Media tool too.

    The issue seems more likely when choosing Windows 8.1 (no N or PRO).

    The issue could be fixed only by downloading the same or a different ISO image again. In addition, it flashes again on the USB port or the burn on DVD another using a speed more SLOW can increase the success rate.

    Also: Don't forget to check the SUM of the ISO downloaded to see if it matches the amount on Microsoft Download Page.

    This ensures that the file has been downloaded without problem and is not corrupted or altered somehow.

    Remember to use only the official Microsoft ISOs to avoid viruses and other security threats.
