    Windows 7 installation halts at expanding files

    I had already asked a few questions in this forum and got it resolved now I have come up with a new I wanted to install the Windows 7 operating system in my machine, it installed halfway and halted abruptly , you cannot imagine my level of frustration level , it shows and stops when it is 'Expanding Files' at 0%. Let me tell you about my specs, I have AMD Phenom x4 940 processor second hand RAM. Please help me out to get rid of this mess

    Well you need to be calm in such kind of situation instead of being frustrated, I too had faced the same issue, but I kept my cool and see now I have resolved the issue. Do not worry I will help you out for that too. What I did is I actually burnt a copy onto a Memorex DVD+R and it got trapped at 1%. Then again I Burnt a second copy onto a Memorex DVD+R DL and it worked like a miracle. It only took a few moments to expand windows files. I suppose dual layer is key for certain reason.

    Re: Windows 7 installation halts at expanding files

    I faced this same issue, where it took closely an hour to get to the 1% mark during the process of installation. I attempted disabling the floppy drive, and also tampered with the HyperTransport settings as directed, but that did not solve my problem. I ended up swapping DVD drives and, after a few minutes at 0%, if flew right through. So, if all else fails I would suggest using a different drive if available to help get it installed.
