I bought a new laptop (HP ProBook 4540s, Intel Pentium B980, 4GB, DDR3 1333 MHz) which came with a Linux SUSE Enterprise. As this laptop is going to be used by a IT beginner, it has to run on Win 7. So, for installing Win7, I did as I have done several times on my own laptop - booted from a Win7 DVD and followed the instructions it gave me. But after formatting the disks, the installing looked like it was doing fine until the first restart - then it gave a disk error ("Disk error, Press any key to restart") and when a key is pressed, it starts HP Advanced System Diagnostics, which is... useless. I alse have tried using an USB for the installing (set the boot priorities accordingly on BIOS) but it just gave the same error.
So, if there is anyone who can help me based on this ambiguous description, I would be forever grateful :)
