Im going to do everything all over again. And according to the link you showed me, I did everything by the book, till #19. I installed drivers, then did my product key, then updates. Wouldn't think it would make such a difference.. But meh, im about to do another fresh one.. .. Thanx for help.. Ill let you know how things go on here.. maybe in an hour or so..

I't may have nothing to do with what order you did things. Its just a good precaution to follow. it may have faulted during the initial installation while setting up the registry. or perhaps your disk is scratched and difficult for the computer to read.

did you rip from the cd or .iso file? your iso could be corrupt or damaged as could your cd/dvd. if so, you may want to try getting your version of windows from here.

Well, im back, This time, i didnt install all the b.s from Toshiba, i just installed the basic drivers Lan, Wireless Lan, Display, The rest, im letting whatever the generic for windows is. Also, the Home Premium i used could have posibly been corrupted you are right. So now im using my ultimate x64 .iso And i have it mounted to another usb. This is alot smoother than what i had to go through wen i did a install for Home premium. Now im wondering, should i even do updates.. ugh!! Too scared.
here goes!!

if you are running a 64bit OS on your computer, then you have a 64bit processor. windows wont allow you to install 64bit on a machine with a 32bit processor. also, in order to legally activate your windows 7 ultimate you will need to purchase a windows 7 ultimate x64 product key. (unless you already have) just throwing that out there. also Microsoft doesn't look to kindly on installing the same copy of windows (with same product key) more than one machine. they may stop supporting you and deactivate your product key if you do. Not saying you are. just throwing that out there.

Edit: you should at least do the recommended security updates. it is essential to your computers security. other than that, its up to you what updates you wish to run. if your not having any problems, then i would just do the security updates.

But you can do vice versa and install a 32bit OS on a 64bit machine with 32bit limitations.

Yea Thats what i just did. I had to install the Win 7 x86. I used compaq's disk. ole well... Anywho, all works well now. no errors, no nothing..! What gave me that idea was this: (processorArchitecture="x86",) .. this is in that first error on my first post. And i started thinking, wtf is this error really talking about x86. Im on a x64 OS with a supported x64 cpu.. UNLESS its a POS cpu and cant hold its weight. Which it seems it cant.!! So now im runninng stable at x86, Only 2.62 GB of the 4 gigs are usable! How and why i dont know!

a 32 bit OS can only use 3.5 gigs of ram. like i said, limitations. other than that, some of your memory is dedicated to your video card so it will reduce it even more. :/
