    I flashed slic2.1 and installed from hard disk in winXP OS.Of course, I followed the steps such as copy bootmgr to C:etc. But when reset to install win7, once "starting windows" came out, Damn! blue screen! Wrong code is OXOOOOOOOA, I tried twice, the same problem?

    what's wrong?

    I think he or she was trying to upgrade to Windows 7 while running WinXP. Sorry to say you can't upgrade only custom install which will wipe your HDD.

    You are better off burning a DVD from a Win7 iso which you can get here, and then installing Win7 from scratch. (don't forget to backup your data first.) :)

    Failed again! But not blue screen again. It suggested required 512MRAM,but my laptop only 256M.

    Thanks anyway! My laptop is really out of date!

    That's the system requirements for Win7 32-bit, you need 512MB or more (that is if you laptop supports more memory.)

    I don't know if there is a way to modify the installer so it can accept less than 512MB, but even so, 7 would run, but also would be slowish on your laptop becuase of the limited memory.
