    Boot your computer from the windows 7 dvd, when it gets to the installation screen don't select install instead look in the lower left portion of the screen and click on repair, it may take a while to scan for operating systems so wait until it is done. click next if you need to, once you see the repair options look for advanced memory tests (or something like that, don't remember the exact name).

    Also, what would be helpful is the exact text of the error message so if you can start it up and let it try to finish the install, when it gets to the message write it down verbatim.

    Is your ram configured as 2 X 1 GB sticks or a single 2 GB stick? One thing you can try if you are sure the error specified memory is to remove one stick and try again, do this with each stick installed by itself to see if you can find which stick is causing the problem.

    Even if removing one of the sticks of ram "fixes" the problem it does not mean you have bad ram, it could be caused by ram timings in the bios or that ram may not be compatible with your motherboard, just because it may have worked in vista doesn't mean that it will in Windows7. You may want to check the motherboard manual and motherboard website to what ram is recommended for your board.

    Also check the bios revision history to see if any bios versions addresses memory compatibility, if so then you may need to flash to the latest revision of your motherboard bios (the latest version contains all fixes from previous versions). Hint, you may want to find the latest bios version on this forum.

    You must have a motherboard manual, go into bios set to failsafe or startup defaults that way you boot into system them fault find from there.

    I am thinking hardware conflict on board which is preventing proper startup basic setup will give you somewhere to work from.

    To go to your MB bios.

    1. boot your PC just when it just posts hit DEL key several times and wait.
    2. on the main menu slect IDE configuration
    3. select SATA mode to AHCI.
    then save and Exit. try install window 7 now. If install w7 is a problem
    perhaps someone will help you.

    Problem Installing Win 7 Ultimate- ideas please

    I've tried several times to upgrade from Vista. It gets to Expanding Files 21% and basically stops.

    I have shut-off virus scanner and all of the normal things one should do.

    The computer is a year old (IBM MoBoard) with 4 gigs of 800Mhz memory and Dual Core.

    Ideas or Suggestions please!

    Don't hijack threads, start a new one if your problem isn't the exact same problem as the original poster.
