Hi! I really need some help, please - I am at the end of my tether... I have an old PC/Desktop, which I want to give away to my cousin. I need to install Win7 (usually I have no problems with it but...), since I can install any language later on and it looks up for newer drivers on the net etc. Either from USB or from DVD - it can't boot, so I can't install it. Code Error 5 (for a standard, normally fully working DVD) or can't read from USB stick (or words to that effect)... I tried everything on the net (nothing works), including all the Hiren Boots, Ultimate Boot CDs and whatnot (all manner of tools) - except trying to make a custom DVD which would be bootable in a DVD drive, even though it is not bootable in my machine, thanx to an old motherboard and BIOS (there are no updates in that regard, btw - I have exhausted all other possibilities)... I have noticed that Hiren Boot 15.2 ("advanced" one, with "restored" content, i.e. the DVD version) boots in a flash! So, it is possible. But I wouldn't know how. I have read up but there is always some step missing for an IT lay person (the pros always miss something they think 'everyone must know', sadly...). Could anyone point me in the right direction - is there such an image/iso to burn to a DVD, please? Or could anyone make one, please? I am sure for old PCs there would be some grateful people! Thanx in advance! P.S. s**te! Now I have a problem isntalling XP, too... Grrrr.... It says it can't format it, having formatted it 100% - "Can't install on this partition, choose another one, the disk might be damaged" - and it isn't damaged... XP creates partitions and then... Echhhh.... WTH???
