Hey guys, i recently purchased Windows 7, i have xp so i opted for the upgrade version,

I enter the install it installs everything until i get to the last 'process' which is Completing Installation, it then proceeds to say windows needs to restart, it restarts then just loops.

I have deleted the partition on the hard drive from the Windows Xp version using command prompt and i fail to see any other methods of sorting this out?

When i try and repair this using the disc, it says it is unable and asks me to send some date to Microsoft, i also get some error codes. Mainly one the error being:

0x0

And the main reason was setup incomplete or something along those lines...
Thanks for any advice

Welcome to the forum Tom...

Are you doing a clean or "custom" install as MS calls it? Also, can you give us your computer specs, that would help.

I was warned by many of my friends, not to do the upgrade option because of this kind of problem. I backed up all the files and photos I wanted to save and then did the complete/clean install and had no problems. Good luck.

In my humble estimation, over 70% of the problems posted on this forum would be eliminated if the above advice is followed.

To do an upgrade install takes anywhere from an hour at the minimum to over 3 hours in some instances, then the associated driver installs etc.

To do a clean or "custom" install takes about 15 to 20 minutes then the driver installs and re-loading the programs you want. Total time about an hour to an 1-1/2 hours, plus the system runs like it should and is much more responsive and faster.

This is a "no brainer", a clean install WILL ALWAYS be better than an upgrade install.

TomHolmes,
Prior to migrating to Windows 7 from Windows XP did you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor?
To determine if your current computer configuration will be compatible with Windows 7 please go to the following link: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/get/upgrade-advisor.aspx
Another resource to verify compatibility is available at the Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility Center located at the following link: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx
Also, does your current hardware configuration require additional drivers for your chipset? You would be able to retrieve this information directly from the manufacturer.
