Windows 7 Setup Could Not Configure To Work On This Computer's Hardware?
120GB Fujitsu Hard drive is set to IDE, but I've tried AHCI as well. 2GB Crucial RAM.Motherboard is ASUS M4A785-M, processor is OEM Phenom II x4 920. Using on board graphics. The only USB device that is plugged in is my mouse. I've tried 2 different ISOs and almost all the editions and I get the same result. I've tried installing the chipset driver along with it, but when I do it just freezes after it restarts.I'm starting to think that something isn't compatible with a 64 bit OS, even though everything is listed..

Windows Setup Could Not Configure Windows To Run On This Computer's
I'm trying to do a fresh clean install of Windows 7 x64 on a new harddrive (Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5") through a USB Key

CPU: Intel i5-2500k
MSI P67A-C43 (B3)

Installing proceeds as normally, until it restarts at Configuring hardware....The resolution will change and then the error message "Windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer's hardware" will pop up.I've changed my SATA settings in the bios to ACHI, RAID, IDE and tried installing multiple times under each option but no dice.I've tried loading Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver from the MSI website prior to the Windows installation, but its giving me an error message about the drivers not being signed.

Windows Setup Cannot Configure Hardware
I have been doing lot of reading and looking around but cannot seem to get past this problem. I recently bought a new HP laptop, i7 processor, Navidia GT6300M video card, 8 GB RAM. HP original windows come with so much bloatware and have so many problems that i want to do a fresh clean windows 7 install on the machine. So i got a bootable windows 7 USB drive, actually i downloaded windows 7 home premium from internet and used windows 7 usb tool to make usb drive. When i go install it, first i come to partition table, HP has four partitions, one system and one recovery and two other small ones. I have tried installing after removing all partitions and make just one system drive, i have also tried keeping the paritions and install on system drive. Every time it goes through the install, reboots, does get through updates and all and on the last part gives the above statement and then i cannot get anything to work. I am able to restreo back to factory using recovery discs so windows work that way.

Lenovo G560 / Setup Cannot Configure Windows 7 On This Hardware
I have installed windows 7 on many of these Lenovo G560's. They are standard from the factory. I had just setup this one particular laptop myself a couple months ago. Now the customer got "the problem" and upon attempting to wipe and reinstall win7 (the exact same OS/flavor, on the exact same hardware) now I receive the "error" saying windows setup cannot configure windows on this hardware.

it's like it gets most of the way thru the basic install, and the harddrive has all the basic files on it. But setup just cannot continue. I Know all about new hard drives, the 4k-thing, that has nothing to do with this, unless some virus is causing a "hardware" problem. Or maybe it is a bios issue? Bios corruption? I can't even reinstall / update bios unless windows is on it. And now I can't finish the win7 install. I have one of these lenovo's as my own laptop here/now typing this on. I don't have a problem reinstalling win7 on it.

I have tried installing from DVD, from a usb stick, from the hard drive itself (copying files to a partition on the hard drive) no go. I've tried changing BIOS settings for the hard drive from AHCI to "Compatible" (there are only these two options) and made no difference. Why (or What) the change? What causes this on standard hardware that normally would work? Is it probably broken hardware? (a bad drive controller?)

"windows Setup Could Not Configure Windows To Run On This Computer..."
I've recently gone out and bought 4 HDDs to run as a raid 10, now I am using my motherboards onboard fakeraid a ihc10r. The cables are fine and when I try and install windows 7 (pro 64x) onto each individual drive with raid and ahci turned off in bios windows installs just fine. Now when I raid the drives as raid 10 windows install can see the drive and even then I load the drivers just to be sure iastor.sys etc (I've tried with and without) the same thing happens every time after the first reboot I get about 10 minutes in and about 2 mins after the screen resolution is adjusted BOOM "windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer's hardware". I've also tried installing with 1 hdd plugged in, raid turned on in bios but no array setup and it also fails at the same point. It's pretty wierd.I did a memtest and it passed this, I also have the jmicron piece of garbage on my MB turned off. Furthermore the install proceeds when the SATA controller is in AHCI mode BUT not in raid mode.

Windows Setup Cannot Configure Windows To Hardware?
I was recently using my computer, when I got the message, "potentially harmful software detected." I clicked the take action option, but nothing happened. So, I turned off my tower, and turned it back on. It wouldn't get to the user sign in process. It just kept with it's blank screen. So, I've had a similar problem before, so I reset my computer to factory condition, since I don't have anything vital on it. I ran start up repair, which worked fine. I ran tests which worked fine and said it passed the entirety of the basic test. I did a more specific hard-drive test, and it passed that. So,I reset the computer to factory condition, and it goes well to that point.But then it gets to the "Setting up services" part of the resetting your computer, and it loads to installing services, but then it will say, "Windows setup cannot configure Windows to this hardware." or something to that affect. Then I'll get a message saying "Windows could not complete installation. Restart instillation." And it'll go no further, even when I reboot. What's wrong? If it helps, I use an HP 2009m.

How To Configure Computer With 2 NIC For Optimum Use
I have a computer running windows 7 x64 home premium that is acting as my home media server. I don't have it configured any way special, just it has 7x3TB drives with my movies, music, pictures, and TV shows that my other computer can access. I am not using the home group function in windows.All my computers are linked through a GB switch and have access to the internet from the switch to my router and then to my modem so traffic between my home computers is through the switch and not my router.My server computer has an on board GB LAN port that is connected to the switch. I have a spare NIC card that I could put into my server, but am not sure if this would give me better network performance.

1) Would adding another network card to my server computer connected through a GB switch give me better network performance?

2) If I have a computer running a torrent client and seeding from my media server could I set it up so that one of the LAN connections was used specifically for this torrent client computer (and would that provide any more stability/performance to my system)?

It Configure Update Everytime I Turn On Computer
I recently purchased a Lenovo and figured that I should obviously get the Windows updates for it. I went to download the updates and all went well, that was until it tried to configure them with my computer. Everytime I turn on my computer now, I have to wait for it to try to configure updates. It gets to 15% completed, and then it suddenly says that the updates failed to configure, so the computer restarts, and then I have to wait for it to start up AGAIN. I've tried this at least 8-9 times and get the same result.

Preparing To Configure Windows - Do Not Turn Off Computer
On my wife's new lap-top I installed a windows update. One of two. One failed, one installed. I clicked restart now and the computer started to shut down. The screen then showed "preparing to configure windows. Do not turn off your computer". After two hours I assumed there was something wrong so I tried to turn off but it wouldn't, even if I unplugged it,so I removed the battery. Now when I switch on and try to boot-up I see the same message and cannot get any further.

Configure A Windows 7 Computer To Set The Default Proxy Settings By Machine?
I'm trying to configure a Windows 7 computer to set the default proxy settings by machine and not by user. I've managed to find the policy in [HKEY_LOCAL_..."ProxySettingsPerUser" and when I set that to 0 it gives me the effect I want and doesn't force me to edit the settings for each user.Similar to the problem this guy: ProxySettingsPerUser had. The proxy settings are now supposedly given from the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE area but after hours spent googling and trying to edit the proxy settings none of my attempts seemed to change it at all. where the computer searches for proxy settings when ProxySettingsPerUser is set to 0? I read that on XP it was the same place but in HKLM not HKCU but this does not seem to work in Windows 7.

"Windows Setup Could Not Configure Windows On This Computers Hardware"?
I am currently trying to install Windows 7 64-bit on my laptop. I current have it set up at 32-bit Windows 7 because one of the RAM sticks died a year ago. I just bought 8 GB of g.Skill ram from Newegg and received it 4 days ago[URL]... I've ran memtest for several passes and no errors show up.

Laptop: HP DM4 1063cl (approximately 2 years old) It used to be able to install Windows 7 from the same disk, but when I tried 3 days ago, it failed. I've downloaded multiple isos of SP1 from Microsoft website and still gives me the same error. I read about RAID drivers but HP told me that AHCI mode is default. I've set the BIOS to default settings and still wouldn't work. The only thing I've ever done to HDD was partition it. I've restored the HDD in comand prompt and still wouldn't run. I've switched the memory back from the old ones and also single sticks and still wouldn't work.

Setup Can't Continue, Restart The Computer And Restart Setup
I am trying to upgrade Vista to Windows7 Home Premium and I got this message after the installer copied ~2GB of files on my PC:

"setup can't continue. restart the computer and restart setup. when prompted try getting the latest updates."

I restarted the PC and restarted the setup and I got the same message. I updated the Mother Board Bios and restarted the setup I got the same message. I have tried both options (get update and no update during the setup). And it didn't work.

I do not want to do custom install (fresh install) on my computer.

Computer Setup
So i just build my computer.....well upgraded from quad core 9550 to core i7 now with my old computer, i was thinking of making that a data server, and having my main rig just os and applications and having the serve on a 2 gig connection to the network does that seem feasible. I have 4 1tb hard drives i wanted to do them in a raid 5 however the Intel controller on the x58 chipset will not let me do non boot raid setup so i can only get 2tb max in that setup.

The i know on board raid isn't the best but raid controller cards are expensive. I will basically use this server for all my data, website creation movies, and music store. i have my os on a raid 0 2x 300gb veloci raptor. Let me know what your ideas are.

How To Setup Computer
I have recently moved to the Netherlands and now in an apartment with a common internet that 3 people, including myself are sharing from. I have been unable to hook up my own wireless router and cannot figure out how to solve this. As of now I am hard wired into the wall where the internet is working. When I plug in my wireless router I lose all internet.If I plug in a cable from Lan1 to my computer I still get nothing...I'm not the most tech friendly person but I do know how to set up my computer. Am I unable to hook it up because of the main shared modem or what?

Best Setup To Use Computer Remotely
I've maxed out my machines RAM and I'm running out of ram at times and hitting hard drive I/O bottle necks. I'm running a setup with 3 monitors on a 2.7Ghz i7 with 16GB of RAM. I'm thinking I could setup another computer, connect to it over the network and have something setup so that much of the time one of my monitors is a remote connection to that computer. Basically giving me the power of another full computer at my same workstation without having to have another physical computer / keyboard / mouse here. I'm going to test the setup with Team Viewer and see how that works to operate a second computer on my network.

How To Get HomeGroup Setup On Main Computer
i am having trying to get my homegroup setup on my main computer? from my understanding it is pretty simple (apparently not for me). i'm not getting the "join now" page when i go the homegroup in control panel. this is the only page i keep getting, i've pretty much tried everything but i keep getting this page, not the "join now" page. i've watched videos on Internet on how to do it but it's not doing what it is suppose to do.
i'm not sure but i think it might have something to do with my router?

Computer Hangs At Start-up AND Setup?
I have a teensy problem in the form of a computer hang up.After running a disk check when my primary drive (C) did not appear in the computer's defrag list, my computer began to lag badly. After a crash, it then hung at the Starting Windows screen. Assuming repair or reinstall of the OS was needed, I popped in my installation disk. It get so far as the "Setup is Starting" screen before it hung (further emphasized by the sound of the in-use CD/DVD drive ceasing activity noise).I'm completely stumped at this point and have no funds to get myself a replacement laptop, and it's an item in my possession that is sorely needed

Setup Can't Continue, Restart The Computer
I'm trying to install Windows 7 but am having problems half way through the setup.

Half way through the install I get the following message "Setup can't continue. Restart the computer and restart Setup. When prompted, try getting the latest updates."

I'm trying to install on a HP Pavilion Entertainment PC (DV6733tx) with Vista service pack 1 installed and 4GB of memory. From the compatibility tests that I have run there shouldn't be any problems.

My partner has also installed from the same disk and it installed properly so we know it's not the disk.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions? I've tried on three separate occasions now and while each time it's progressed a little further, I still end up with the above error message.

Setup Computer With Backup Boot Drive?
I am wondering if there is a way for me to set up my computer in the following manner:

C: <- Main Boot Drive (60GB SSD)
D: <- Copy of Boot Drive (60GB SSD)
E: <- Program Drive (1TB HDD)
F: <- Storage Drive (2TB HDD)
G: <- Download Drive (500GB)

I have done the separate program and storage drive before, but I was wondering if perhaps a way to back up my boot drive without necessarily raid. It was brought to my attention that if something were to go wrong with the data then raid would automatically copy it (which makes sense), or am I worrying to much?
