    Default Win7 wont install on AM1A-M system

    Hello,

    trying to get windows 7 x64 to install on the following rig:

    ATHLON 5350
    ASUS AM1A-M (1201 BIOS)
    8GB DDR3 GSKILL
    ADATA X900 256 SSD
    SAMSUNG DVD-RW
    GENERIC CASE WITH 500W CORSAIR PSU

    Windows 8/8.1 work, and so does 10.

    Windows 7 gives me a services cannot start message after it finish installing. I was able to get past that with:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...e79d2e2?auth=1

    using:

    "1) On the same error screen press SHIFT+F10 and it will open up a black Window. (a command prompt window)2) In the black windows type the word "regedit"(without the inverted commas and hit enter. That will open the registry editor.
    In the Registry Editor..
    Browse to....
    HKLocal machine/SYSTEM/SETUP/STATUS/ChildCompletion, and after highliting childcompletion,on the right hand side check for setup.exe. if the value is 1 change it to 3.(by double clicking on setup.exe and changing the value shown in the box).
    Then close the registry editor and then also close the black window.
    Then click on OK for the error and the computer will restart and the installation may complete. just try it and let me know if it worked."

    it reboots, let me enter names,et and crashes on the desktop.

    What could it be? perhaps I need to slipstream the apu drivers into a windows 7 disc?

    FYI: computer is for my parents, and they want win7 as it is what they are used to.
