There are many different versions of Windows operating systems such as Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 and users can install them on the system depending upon their requirements and hardware configuration. Windows operating systems are also very easy to install as users can just insert the installation disk into the system and follow on screen instructions. However, some users might face some problems installing Windows OS. These problems include blue screen errors during installation, system freeze during installation, error messages notifying that the particular Windows OS cannot be installed on the system and so on. These issues might be because of reasons such as malware infections within the system, problems with the installation disk in use, system not meeting the requirements of the OS, traces of problems within the system hard disk etc. Such issues would mean that users would not be able to complete the installation and use the system and this would render any of the data within the other partitions of the hard disk inaccessible.

- Check system configuration
- Format hard disk
- Verify installation source
Check system configuration
Different Windows operating systems have different requirements such as space on hard disk, graphics processors, RAM and so on. If your computer to be installed with Windows OS does not meet the requirements of the OS, then the installation would run into errors. Such issues can be avoided by checking the configuration of the system and upgrading the components such as RAM and graphics card and then proceeding with the installation.
Format hard disk
Traces of data or errors left behind by the previous operating system can lead to installation issues. This is because problems (such as malware) might be still active within the hard disk and installing Windows OS over these problems would result in failed installation. All users installing Windows OS are therefore recommended to carry out a clean installation or format the hard disk of the computer system to ensure such problems do not come up.
As Windows Operating Systems are very popular, there are many cracked or pirated versions of the OS out on the Internet. Installing your computer with a pirated Windows OS can result in serious issues. Users installing Windows OS are therefore suggested to verify the installation source used for installation. The verification of authenticity of installation disc must be ideally done before installation as it would avoid errors during installation.
