Windows 7: "Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart" error and Clean installation Erorr

Windows 7 Ultimate x32
 
 
"Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart" error and Clean installation Erorr

Its me again........
I had my second laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

My problem occurs when I try to downgarde [clean installation] to Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit (using CD / DVD installation). This is what I do: -

1. Select "Custom (Advanced)"
2. Select "Particion 2 (Primary)"
3. Then it erorr at "expanding the Windows files". (I forget what the erorr) & told me to restart.

Then, Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart error appear.

Then what I do after that is, try to install the with my other version of Windows, the Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit (this one using USB for Installation), I repeat the same way as above, and really surprised me everything went smoothly, no error.

If is the DVD ( Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit ) is main problem, but it when okay on my dad & bro pc & I just bought it 3 months ago.

This problem is not a new problem for me, but already this already thousands times this problem occurs when I try to make a "clean installation" on my first & second pc.

Plus, both are still consider a new laptop [1st laptop - 2009 & 2nd laptop 2011 ]

If you want to say that my DVD Player is the problem,it very strange to me because I've tried to install other programs like Avira and everything went smoothly except for a Windows installation DVD.

Usually , the installation went good on USB but always problem with DVD , although the DVD is a new one.....

If possible, I want to use my Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit instead of Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit because Windows 7 Ultimate does not belong to me, it's belong to my father. I'm using it only to attempt to solve this problem ..... .

So I hope anyone can help me.

Thank you.

note: Why i want to downgrade?? because most my software doesn't support 64bit....

What do the drives look like when you try to start the install? I always prefer to have blank hard drives, and then use diskpart to partition the drive the way I want before letting Window's installer to continue.

On an unrelated note, what programs do you have that aren't compatible?

I'm sorry, I did not quite understand what you mean .. [Sorry I was a bit slow in the technology world ..]

About the OS, I decided to install 64 bit after I studied a bit with the laptop on the internet [Dell Inspiron 14R 1440].

That Laptop, was not suitable for 32bit & it was designed for 64bit.

But I'm glad most of my programs suitable with 64bit except for Camtasia Studio.....
