    I tried loading windows 7 on my Dell Inspiron Mini, it says completing installation but after an hour it doesn't change, windows 7 hangs up on installation.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hello & Welcome to Tech Guy Forum.

    Please provide us with:
    model & model # of your Dell Mini
    W7 version; 32 or 64 bit; SP 0 or 1
    W7 disk source: from Dell, from Microsoft; from 3rd party
    [ There are some bootleg copies of W7 that will result in this kind of problem ]
    What's on your screen when the system stalls: has the W7 splash screen appeared; have you logged in; has the desktop appeared; has W7 run for the 1st time?

    Did you re-format the HDD?
    Is this a new HDD?
    Did this computer ship with W7? Which W7?
    Please describe the circumstances regarding this W7 install.

    Would you describe yourself as a beginning, intermediate or advanced computer user?
    end edit
