Hi guys i have put in a new harddrive now and i still cant start i have put the harddrive in my other laptop and put windows 7 on it so it has a operating system.
When i boot up it starts with the windows logo the 4 balls come into the screen to make the windows emblem then they stop the screen flicks blue and then goes to start windows normally or repair so i clicked repair ran it no problems i click start windows normally just repeats over and over i sat with a camera and caught the screen after a few attempts LOL very frustrating.

Just to get the terminology right so there is no confusion, formatting has a very specific meaning that may or may not involve installing the operating system.

Installing an operating system on a brand new drive is a three stage process.

First the disk has to be partitioned. This creates an area of the disk that is to contain the OS. The partition then has to be formatted.

This lays down the file system information with track and sector boundaries,

Then and only then, when partitioning and formatting is complete, can the operating system be installed.

With a Windows installation disk, partitioning and formatting is done from the installation process.

When reinstalling an operating system step one may be by passed.

Formatting an existing disk just deletes everything on it and you end up with a blank disk

Did you install the operating system on the other laptop and then remove it and put it in this computer. If so, that is your problem. Windows has to be installed on the computer it is going to run on.

Make sure when you reinstall, you delete ALL partitions & format to NTFS.

W7 - Click on > Drive options (advanced) Then highlight each partition & hit > Delete.

Here are some examples of why you delete all partitions.

If the original hard disk had a virus and it was cloned onto the new one you will still have the virus.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
