Yep, downloaded from microsoft, its 64 bit and 7100 build.
Burned with microsoft software, whatever their default burner app is on 7000 build, using sony dvdburner via usb.
The disc is solid, I even tested install on another box with no problems a few minutes ago.
I am thinking it has to be something with the hard drive, and windows setup not being able to actually format the drive correctly.
Clean install, I completely wiped the drive prior to install, and I am attempting dual boot with mac os x on another HD (200 GB).
This install is going on a 500 GB WD HD (SATA), completely clean and the drive was working fine just prior to attempted setup.
Setup starts fine, but when I get to the drive options under custom install, I select the 500 GB drive (disk 0 partition1) I beleive and click delete, format, new...install...and the error begins.
I even attempted changing partition size without any success.
I used a WD disk utility from my collection of utilities, and formatted ntfs.
