When you have finished the installation, you could try this tool: Intel® Driver Update Utility

Download the tool and run it, it detects your Intel hardware and finds the more recent drivers for you. I have successfully used it when the Intel HD onboard GPU was causing issues.

Your PC might be and according to your MS Info file really is a 64 bit computer, however as shown in your screenshot you are testing the ISO on QEMU emulator which as far as I know is 32 bit. When using the ISO on an emulator or a virtual machine, the hardware the ISO sees is the virtual, emulated hardware of the emulator, not that of your host PC.

If you want to test the ISO, you could for instance attach it as a virtual DVD to your system using any third party virtual CD/DVD software. I prefer Gizmo, other geeks might recommend another virtual drive software.

Great catch Kari!

For all the time I was thinking that it is a physical PC under discussion.

Most probably the Virtual PCs does take the display drivers from guest additions, is not it? Does QEMU do it differently?

Hi Tyrhung.

A little clarification is needed, IMHO, before you proceed. Your post #24 gives a fair vision that you are running a QEMU guest. Are we talking about a Guest OS installation over all the thread?

Make it clear. Because it is the most vital information here at this point.

We havent got the answer to post #27 yet.

One minute .... does it mean you burnt a DVD and tested it in QEMU before you work on the physical computer? If so, As Kari stated, QEMU will not load a 64 bit OS.

And, why UltraISO? Dont call more troubles for you. Simply use Rufus.

Arc, i might be misinterpreting but i follow from post #14 to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

From there i go through the long list of steps.
At step 1, i have to download the win7 iso, and verifying if the iso downloaded does not contain any other stuff.

As i need to burn to a usb which i followed from this paragraph
Burn ISO to DVD or to USB flash stick (minimum size of 4GB required) using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool which is sometimes fussy about the ISO, or to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed, to flash stick using UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive.

Yes i burnt to a usb drive and test if the burnt product is faulty.
My plan is still to do a clean reinstall.
