    Please use the Media creation tool to make a 32 bit version. Burn to DVD.

    I burned a Windows 10 32-bit DVD from the ISO created by the Media Creation Tool. It has the message about pressing a key and when it's pressed, after a few seconds, the computer restarts. The DVD works on another system.

    If you're trying to boot from the DVD, don't.

    If you wish to upgrade, the installer must be launched from within Windows 7.

    That is interesting that you can't clean install at least to the point where it asks about whether you want to install or repair.

    Have you made any customization in BIOS, might load defaults and try again.

    Can you boot a Window 7 disk?

    I restored the bios defaults, but it's the same. It can't boot Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit DVD, but the DVD boots on another system. Yes, I tried first upgrading from Windows XP to 7 and to 10 then but took the HDD to another computer, both work there and 7 works on the old one, but if 10 is installed there is only a black screen when the HDD is returned. 10 can be installed from the HDD on the old one too after having 7, but on a restart, there is only a black screen. It can boot Windows XP CD and read the DVDs after Windows starts. Maybe the problem is with the DVD drive, it's PATA GSA-4165b. On another website, there were some posts about that maybe some drives can't boot DVDs'.

    Yes I'm thinking you have a hardware issue if you can't boot Windows 7.

    So you have to get back to basics. Disconnect what ever is not required for boot. I might even remove CMOS battery for five minutes and go through setup again. If you can, wired keyboard and mouse.

    Not sure how memory is configured but it should be tested. Hopefully you have two sticks, just use one in the slot designated for using single stick.

    Not sure if you are going to be able to boot this but a good memory tester.

    MemTest86+ - Test RAM


    Check all connections, disconnect and reconnect. If card has VGA display port I would use it.

    It ran 2 passed, no errors. I tried creating a bootable USB Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 with Rufus, with the options add fixes for older BIOSes and Rufus MBR, MBR and NTFS too, there was a message \Boot\BCD 0xc000000e. The USB booted on another computer, but in that BIOS it couldn't be found in the boot order, it was in some hard drive order, and when it was set first it booted. Yes, maybe it's because of the hardware.

    Interesting. It sounds like it booted Memtest. You really have to go longer than 2 passes to test memory but for this it was likely sufficient. The fact is it booted.

    So when you say PATA I assume you are using IDE and wide ribbon cable. If so is drive set to be master (using jumpers) ?

    The drive is set as a slave.

    Wouldn't it have to be set to Master as boot disk?
