I've reached the last straw with my attempts to install windows 7 64 bit onto my PC the story goes as this;
I needed to upgrade from windows XP 32bit to Windows 7 64bit however when I installed my first Windows 7 package I didnt realise but it was infact 32bit so to my annoyance I reformatted back to XP 32bit, (I need 64bit to run several things on my computer such as high end games) in the mean time my family told me they wanted windows 7 on their PC, so using their PC I created a USB boot disk and used it on my bare-bones PC (The one I'd recently reset to XP), this brought up my first Disk Read Error.
Annoyed I tried a few different ways of making a USB boot only to always be brought to the same error, deciding to do the family PC first I used the same boot which had brought up an error on MY PC in my families PC and it worked like a charm. Not a single issue and Windows 7 64bit was installed within the hour. USing this new platform I created a -new- USB boot disk thinking that if I made a 64bit boot off a 64bit system it would have more luck ... No it didnt.
I've tried all sorts of BIOS options but every time it just brings up the same error, I attempt to change the 64bit bootsect.exe to a 32bit one and it didnt bring up the error but then told me files were corrupt. I have unfortunatly only got one ... long ... answer left.
I install windows 32bit again, then use that platform to clean install 64bit windows7 but I doubt that'll work.
For the record I KNOW I cannot upgrade from 32 to 64, I WANT to do a CLEAN INSTALL!
Any help someone a little more learned in this matter could give me would be great! Thanks in Advance
