Windows 7 64bit
Custom PC - Can't get a first Install


I just finished my i3 build and am trying to get my Windows 7 Home Premium to install and am not having much success.

First of all, I want to note that I am trying to install from an external DVD-Drive via USB because it's extremely hard to get the Drives out of the old Dell computer. I either have to order new ones, or literally break that case.

Anyways, I've been messing with BIOS settings (mostly SATA config and USB legacy settings) and what not, but no matter what I try (seemingly) I get one of two things to occur:

1) The 'expanding Windows files' sticks on 0%
2) I get the 'Windows Cannot Install Required Files Error'

I'm back on default BIOS settings and am going to listen to you guys, because what ever I do doesn't work

Thanks for all the help in advance!
