I'm reinstalling Windows 7 Pro on a Dell Precision MP4800 laptop.
I boot to the DVD, delete the old partition, create new partition, format and proceed with OS install. It all goes fine until the install finishes I get a message that says "Windows setup could not configure to run on this computer's hardware".
I found an article here: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1651700/windows-setup-configure-run-computer-hardware.html
that said to do the following which worked.
1) At "windows setup cannot configure windows for this hardware" screen
2) Pres Shift F10
3) Type -Cd..
4) Type Cd..
5) Type Cd c:\windows\system32\oobe
6) Type Msoobe
Any idea what is causing this? Do I need to install a driver for the hard drive during the Windows 7 install? The drive is a Seagate FireCuda 2.5 SSHD hybrid.
Any help is appreciated.
