Help windows 7 won't install?!

Hello!

I just did format my computer so I can install Windows 7 on a empty pc.
I entered the cd-rom to install windows 7 but I keeps staying on unpack at 0%. It's been there for almost 1 hour now.. I keep starting stressed it isn't gonna work anymore.
Anybody knows if this is normal and if I should wait? Or what I should do?

Thanks!

use a virtual disk cloner like Daemon

I install it successfully through it

just put the directory of the disk in and it might go on like normal

What are the spec's for your computer? If you have minimum RAM and a slow processor, it can take a long time to unpack the installation files.

I got code: 0x8007045D. Can't install needed files. Make sure all files are available for installation and restart the installation.
