New Computer cannot load Windows 7 not vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have built new computer with MSI G31M3 V2 mainboard & MSI DVD Multi Recorder (code on barcode sticker DH-20AS 6). Windows 7 Home Premium. Windows loads to a point and then says "Windows cannot be installed to this disk (Hard drive) This computers Hardware may not supporti Booting to this disc. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the Computers BIOS menu". Have gone back to BIOS and loaded manufacrurers default. Sometimes the Windows 7 installer asks for drivers but none of the disks that came with the Mainboard (Windows XP and Windows Vista has drivers acceptable by  Windows 7.
    After finding a driver that windows 7 installer can use the message says Failed to create a new partition on the selected unused space [Error 0X80070017]
