Force 3 GT 180GB SSD won't install win 7 on my HP DV7-1285dx laptop that had Vista


Recommended Posts

Sorry it's a Force Series GT 180GB SATA Drive. If I go into the Bios, on the 1st tab it shows Vista as the "installed" OS no matter what drive is attached.


It's hard to tell since different OEMs modify the look and feel of the BIOS differently. Are you using a retail disk to install Windows 7? How far in the process did you get? Did you remember to setup the BIOS to boot from DVD also are you doing a clean install, or upgrade? One thing it also might be is some kind of recovery partition the OEMs add showing on the bootloader since as said the BIOS shouldn't mention OS unless maybe the splash screen says made for Windows Vista or something?
