I first tried installing windows 7 as an upgrade and as a clean install on the 19th October , i thought i would try again today , but no luck.
It still wont install ,stops at 21% at the 3rd section of install, exactly the same as before.
If i had alot of hair i would tear it out!!!!!!!!
I have run compatability advisor = no problem, turned off anti virus, deathourised Itunes, what more can i do????????????????
This is driving me mad!!!!!!!!!
Anyone any ideas??????

do you have an operating system to boot to? it's a long shot but you could try running disk cleanup and defragmenting before another attempt.if attempting an upgrade you could run sfc /scannow.
