Windows 7 Beta 7000 32 bit
 
 

So....I completely reformatted my hardrive, and tried installing 7, also a fail. So I am thinking that the ISO i downloaded sucks. I dont know if u guys are allowed to tell me, but which exact ISO are you guys using, since there are various diff ones out there on the net. If u cant tell me that, maybe a hint? lol, cuz something has to be wrong with this burned iso dvd I am using....

I grabbed a 6956 ISO that simply will not install - so I am going to *try* to wait until the public Beta is announced and / or I get my official copy sent to me from teh Developer Conference I attended.

I have plenty of other things to do, like get XP x64 completely configured, and then get Vista x64 reinstalled on here....

STOP: 0x00000078 is a kernel mode initialization error. Very low level. Suggest maybe bad RAM at first but still looking at his system specs for possible issues.

" Digitizer and Executive Stylus " so it's a early tablet PC. Can you turn the tablet options off in the BIOS and try to install?

Hahaha, yeah I'm familiar with TPB, and have found multiple iso's there. I really think I should just wait for the public beta to be released, since it is just around the corner, and I think I will be able to wait even though it is driving me nuts I haven't had a chance to mess with 7 yet.

I am however hoping to get a nice little netbook for myself during the holidays, and would most likely install 7 on it, mostly because I do not think I can go back to using XP, and Vista would be too much of a resource hog on a netbook.

Thanks again guys for all of your help! I will deff try the new beta when it is released and will give updates on wether or not I can get that to work on my machine!
