Windows 7: Build 7000 wont install!

Build 7000 wont install!

I cant get my windows 7 build 7000 to install. I have the ISO mounted to a virtual drive, and also burned it to a DVD. Each time I try to start it (while Vista is loaded), I get this error message after Copying Files and Starting Installation screens:

"The unattend answer file contains an invalid product key. Either remove the invalid key or provide a valid product key in the unattend answer file to proceed with Windows installation."

Never mind trying to get the computer to boot from the DVD......because that wont work either.

I actually did get this to almost completely install on my Asus EEE PC 1000H this morning, but after it installed and it said it was Finalizing Installation and Starting Windows, it froze for two hours....I restarted, but now it wont work at all. Help!

Did you download one that supposedly was already "hacked" with a key? There shouldn't be a key already in the .ISO file...

I'm not sure...why then would it have installed on my EEE this morning (albeit didn't finish). Is there some way I can take the Key out of the ISO?

I don't know if that's posible with a tool like Vlite. try mounting the image, copy all the files to a folder and use vlite. that would be my best guess

If the problem is with the unattended file, go ahead and remove it
Do you have the same behavior in VPC ?

Kind regards,

This is a legit build and it has NO unattended file on it.
That error may be appearing from a memory error, or a defective dvd burn.
Do you have the same error if using XP, or Vista ?

BTW -> Bed time Please respond and I will get back to you as soon as posssible.

Should I install Build 7077 or 7000?
So, I've been using Build 7000 but went back to Vista x64 because my surround sound didn't work. You think the 7077 build will fix that? It's the onboard 5.1 surround sound (asus board). Also, should I wait for the official RC or just suck it up and deal with the surround sound issue in 7000 or...

So... do I install Win7 build 7000 or 7022?
Since 7022 was leaked, I'm kinda hesitating between 7000 and 7022. I'll be switching over Win7 for a 2nd time and I want to install a build that everyone suggest to. So, your thought? P.S I'm on Vista until next Monday, so you have time.

W7 x86 build 7000 fails on install...
I tried this as both an upgrade to Vista SP1 and from scratch with the same results. I install W7, everything goes well, and on the "final reboot" the system just hangs there with the new 3D Windows logo on the screen and goes no further. I tried to boot into safe mode, which kind of succeeded...

Install Beta or keep Build 7000?
Have you guys actually re-installed or fresh-installed the official ISO , or you just got your keys and added them to your Build 7000 that u already had? Is there a difference? Have you noticed? Or is it identical build?
Installation & Setup
W7 build 7000 driver install
There has, so far, been no issues with drivers for 7000 for the Acer 5920gmi that I use. To disable my touchpad I installed the Synaptics driver just to disable the touchpad. All drivers installed during installation and on first update the rest were installed. It is a perfect scenario.
