Windows 7: Help Err2Err3 on first try win 7 upgrade

20 Feb 2011   #31


The messages you are getting mean the HD is trying to boot. Again, the DVD is not booting even after pressing any key to boot DVD.

Where did you get Win7? How do you plan to activate it?

Check the HASH against official Win7 HASH codes.

Then burn another DVD at 4x speed with ImgBurn.

If this continues to fail, write the confirmed ISO to a USB flash stick: Install UltraISO trial, on File tab Open ISO, on Bootable tab Write ISO, press Format button, press Write. Boot under USB or HD's.
