Specs: Windows 7, Intel Core 2 Duo P7350
Hi,

I am using a Philips (15NB8611) Laptop with Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 processor, 250 GB HDD, 4GB RAM, nvidia 9300 series card.

I resized my primary partition and then started installing windows 7, after installation it said that the system must be restarted inorder to complete the installation and when it restarted it stuck on the first screen. Now my system doesn't go even to BIOS and neither moves ahead but is halted with the screen press F2 to go to BIOS. I removed the hard drive and then it started working fine. I plugged another hard drive in to my system, it works fine. I plugged my hard drive into another laptop where it also worked fine. I formatted my primary partition and then replugged into my own system but again it doesn't work. My system is fine and hard drive also works on another laptop but i am unable to understand why it doesn't go ahead from first screen when i connect it on my laptop. Please help me if you have any suggestions.

Regards

Safdar

sounds like you need to install Sata drivers or some other controller from the laptop website.
because you formatted the drive you have probably deleted the hidden partition and cannot go back and reinstall the original os.
i suggest that fist download all the drivers for your laptop from the manufactururs site, copy them to cd, install them on the hard drive and then see if it works.

It might be the reason but i only formatted my primary partition not the whole drive. But thanks for your help. I will try to do this as well.

if you didnt format the whole drive you should be able to run your factory reset, it will delete the c; drive and reinstall your system as it was the day you bought it, you can then upgrade your windows vista or do a win7 compatability test to find out what drivers you will need
you should check your manual or go to the philips site for how to do a factory reset
