I am having some problems with a pavilion a6500f that had vista x64. I have tried to upgrade it to windows 7 Home Premium but it kept freezing on complete installation. I then dban the hard drive, now it still will not download windows 7 home premium. I have formatted the partion and it still will not install the OS. I meet all the requirements and have used the advisor to do so before I had starting this process.


Can some help me on this problem? Do I need to buy another hard drive, because I can’t boot up any OS at this point?

You posted that you upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, then you wiped the hdd and tried to install Windows 7.  Are you trying to install Windows 7 from a upgrade disc?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
