cannot install Vista or Windows 7 on a Dell Optiplex GX520
Posted on 2009-05-05
Hi folks, I'm at my whit's end now. I am trying to install Windows Vista or (preferably) Windows 7 onto a Dell Optiplex GX520 system with 4Gb RAM and a 250Gb HDD. Basically it will start the installation routine, but after the first reboot it just hangs with a flashing cursor in the top left of the screen... Gets no further... Windows XP works just fine.
I have checked all hardware using PC Check and the MS Memory tester and all seems okay there...
500 pointer :)
