Hi hope someone can help, I have a 3 year old approx Acer Aspire773g laptop,I have tried to install a new hard drive but have come up against a problem.I used a set of 4 recovery cds i brought from Acer to install windows 7,the install goes ok up to the point I am prompted to restart the laptop and the it goes wrong.When it restarts it starts to initalize sevices and then an error message comes up saying installer cannot install windows on this computer.The new hard drive is a seagate 128g.Ihave installed a hard drive on this laptop 2 years ago with these recovery cds with no problem. Regards Stephen

Check in SERVICES to see if Windows Installer is running - if not START it.
