Question about E-Machines T5088 PC Desktop
I tried to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate and it gave me some sort of error like not recognizing my HDD! I restored Vista Home Basic and tried clean install. Same issue. It acts fine, allows me to set user name, password, and time zone, then it gives me error. Tried live chat on eMachines site and they were useless. Told me this system is not "compatible" with Win 7. WTF? Ridiculous. Hopefully someone here has the answer or already upgraded their T5088 to Win 7. Compatibility Wizard said all was good on my pc for upgrade, clean install, 64, & 32 bit. I'm at a loss.
All is fine up to that point into the setup because it's generic up to that point. The chipset on the motherboard is not supported by windows 7 at this point. It is not the harddrive that's not compatible but is the chipset in the board that supports the operation of the drive. The compatibility wizard is causing all kinds of problem for MS. It could just be one little chip in the board that is hanging up your install. There are many topics if you Google Windows 7 forced install. People are saying some forced installs are working and some are not. Good luck
