Re: problem installing OS in a newly assembled PC
Try installing first the windows xp.Make two apartments and install the
Xp on the one.The other one format it,boot with the linux cd and try to
install it to the empty apartment.Be sure that your system supports the
linux kernel because some of the CPU brands don't support the linux OS;S.

I have been installing OS for windows and Linux. But I have a problem running online and offline games in linux flatforms. I am fond of playing offline games too. Since Our clients in the internet cafe' requests PLANT VS. ZOMBIES game be installed in the other units having ubuntu OS 8.10 client desktops. Just make sure when you have installed the ubuntu it must be accompanied with WINE INSTALLER in order to run the exe. file of the Windows design Plant Vs. Zombies. Copy the folder of the Plant Vs. Zombies files and then paste it in the desktop or home folder of the Linux OS. Right Click the exe icon the open it with wine program installer. Then just wait for a while then the Plant Vs. Zombies game will load in a linux Program.
Enjoy Playing Plant Vs. Zombies in Windows and Linux Program.
That's a sticky wicket. Windows can be finicky. It might be easier to install an open source OS before installing Windows if you still want to. I have limited experience installing an OS on an Acer D257. I accidently erased WIndows while trying to dual boot Mint. I like Mint 16 better anyway because it doesn't have all the lost time of Windows installing updates and system repair stalls because the battery ran out don't happen etc. Mint is cool and free online for download.
Linux Ubuntu is also free and very easy to install. If you install Mint first then install Ubuntu it is fairly simple to dual boot and have two operating systems.
It is possible to dual boot Windows 7 of course, yet Linux is free online so if you botch it another try doesn't cost anything, while if you lose Windows 7 or Windows 7 Starter and lose the product key it can cost quite a bit to replace it. In some future Universe Windows might make its O.S. available free for home versions and charge a low price annually for using it and receiving upgrades etc. That would make it easier to dual boot with other systems. Mint 16 has everything Windows offers essentially except for the Windows Movie maker. I had a lot of trouble getting the free app movie makers to work in Mint for some reason.
This is more fun than you can imagine but first you must decide which OS you would like whether it be Windows or LINUX. Windows is the more common option for most users, however LINUX is quite excellent just a bit of a learning curve at first.
Whatever you go with, I also recommend using a program called WinsetupFromUSBhttp://code.google.com/p/winsetupfromusb/downloads/list. It will setup a usb stick to boot many options, such as windows installations or linux os or both plus many more, I made a diagnostic bootable usb stick with 20 different boot options for installations diagnostic programs ect !
there are a lot of ways: 1. Install through USB Device. 2. Install through a DVD. It would also depend on the type of Operating System: Linux or Windows. It is relatively easy to install Windows OS than Linux though it is easy to install Linux is easier when installed inside windows. For windows installation: 1.Insert windows DVD or USB and boot through the device inserted. 2.After the language selection, you will be directed to select the partition in which the windows will be installed. 3. Select the partition and click install. 4. the software will be installed over time. for Linux installation: it will depend on the type of linux. it is best to refer the particular linux's free documentation to better understand the installation process
On the same machine, Windows does not tolerate second OS. Ont the other hand you can install any number of OS' if it is a Linux machine. The trick is to install Windows first and then install Linux etc. The Linux boot manager will tolerate Windows and others and incorporate then with itself. But vice versa is not possible.
Could be a number of issues here. Can you boot it into safe mode (F8)? If you can get into safe mode without it rebooting, check to see if any newly installed drivers are causing the problem. (I'm assuming you have not changed the processor etc). Download and install memtest, this will check to see if you have Ram that is failing.
If you are unable to access safe mode, then try booting from CD using a Linux based boot OS (Ubuntu or Magix), That may give you some idea as to whether it is a hardware fault or a corrupted windows files. (possibly a virus)?
If you have a spare hard drive, try installing that and installing a fresh copy of your OS, again, if this works without issue, then the problem may lie with the original hard drive.
