I have a Dell inspiron 5342 and want to install windows7 x86 ( 32bit) on it.
When i start to install OS, the step 2 (where it extracts the files) goes till 57% and stops.
I checked google and found that it is dur to the AHCI controler and i would need to chage the bios to IDE support.
When i chekced the laptop BIOS it does not have support for IDE, and ONLY AHCI is in the list.
So i want to know how can i install a 32bit windows 7 with just AHCI support.
( I tried to install 64bit version and it install fine. I have a software which will work only on windows 7 32 bit so that is why i need windows 7 32 bit )
