My HDD died so I replaced it with a seagate 3tb SATA3 Hard Drive but when I try to install windows 7 from the set up disks that came with the dell pc it keeps failing
it starts the install then reboots, windows starts and continues the instal but then I get this error as it says windows is starting services
"Windows Set up could not configure Windows to run on this computer's hardware"
also the HDD is only appearing as a 750GB drive partition in which to install
I have a Studio XPS 8100, Dell previously comfirmed I could use a sata3 drive but will only get the performance of a sata2 which is fine
