Perhaps you could provide some more info as to what the error is. One issue will be the Qt version. However, it is possible to install on Ubuntu 15, 16, and 17. The others should be fine too.

What sort of hard disk could be the wrong type? In any case I would suggest Windows 10 over 7 for a decent increase in security posture if properly configured.
