Specs: Windows 7, Intel Dual Core E5700 3.0 GHz
hi everybody, did anyone know about this problem ?. i try to install windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit. Here My Computer Spesification
- Motherboard Asus P5G41C-M LX
- Processor Intel Dual Core E5700 3.0 GHz
- RAM 2 x Visipro DDR2 2 GB
- Harddisk Maxtor PATA/IDE 80 GB as Master Drive
- Harddisk Seagate Barracuda PATA/IDE 250 GB as Slave Drive
- Power Supply Extreme
- Samsung DVD External USB (id don't have Internal DVD Drive or Floppy Drive)
- i want to install Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit.

it very strange, when i'm install using windows 7 DVD, it take a long time to enter instalation menu (15 minutes), and when i want to install it said :

"Windows Cannot Installed in this Disk. This Computer Hardware, may not support booting to this Disk, ensure that the disk controller is enabled in the computer BIOS menu"

i try to modify storage setting in BIOS ( Enhanced, Compatible ) etc and it still not work, i check to my Harddisk Jumper and i sure that all my jumper is in correct position (Maxtor as Master, i give a jumper and seagate as slave, i give it no jumper), IDE cable was installed correctly (Blue Socket for The Motherboard, Black for MAxtor as Master, and Grey for Seagate as slave ). All my Hardware well detected in BIOS, i check my harddrive condition and it's okay on another computer.

thank for the attention and answer, sorry about my bad english, this is not my mother language.

✔ Best Answer
The first thing you need to do if the system is operating is to go to Windows 7 site and run the compatibility test to see if there are any issues.
If there are no issues, or if your system is not currently bootable, see if all hardware manufacturers have Windows 7 drivers available for them. If the test comes back with any significant issues that you cannot correct or if you cannot get drivers for your hardware, do not bother trying to proceed.
These should have been done before you even purchased Windows 7 for it.
If you can actually proceed, disconnect any hard drives that are purely for storage and just leave the one you are installing W7 on (if going for dual boot then leave that drive connected). If you are planning to install W7 on 80 GB drive, know that you will not have much space left on it after the installation, in fact it may not accept the drive because it is too small (I think the final install is about 60GB and there are all kinds of temporarily installed files that are removed after the install is complete).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
