xp pro 32 bit
Win 7 upgrade disk will not run. No error message.

I have 2 computers on a home network (both were running Win XP Pro). Obtained Win 7 Upgrade disk fom Microsoft and installed Win 7 on Machine 1. OK!
Now trying to install Win 7 on Machine 2.

Placed disk into DVD-CD drive and drive seems to run. Start/my computer/cd drive shows disk is in drive. Right click/explore. Disk contents appear.

Disk runs but machine hangs up. Nothing happens. Placed disk in cd drive of machine 1 and it performs as it should.

I have updated the driver for disk drive. Other disks which I have tried in the cd drive seem to operate correctly.

Motherboard is a MSI MS-7309 1.0
Processor - AMD 2.60 HZ Athlon 64
Memory 4GB
CD Rom- Compaq DVD-Rom SD-M1612

I really want to install Win7 on this machine so both machines appear the same.

Can any one help, Please!
