I am trying to reinstall Windows 7 Pro on an Inspiron 3250 Desktop PC.
It goes to Installing Updates and then reboots. After reboot it goes to Completing Installation and never moves from that spot. I have tried to setup several times, and left it on Completing Installation, once for 6 hours and another time for 9 hours. It just sits there.
I have run the diagnostics, including the 3.5 hour memory diags and the 2 hour hard drive diags and no problems were found.
I have tried using two different Windows DVDs.
I am about to try using a USB drive made according to the Dell instructions from the ISO downloaded from Dell, which I used to make the DVD that ends sitting at Completing Installation.
I am looking for any suggestions before I call and sit on hold with Dell Support and make them fix the problem.
