What procedure are you following for clean install? You have to follow this procedure

Clean Install Windows 7

keeping the "Automatically activate when online" box unchecked. After that, follow option 3 in the following tut.

Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

If theres an error, either the disk is bad or the iso is bad. try burning the iso again at lowest speed. You can also google and download disks off the web.

yeah im thinking its the iso because at step 8 where you select the partition to install to i get an error saying. "Setup was unable to create a system partition or locate an existing partition." and to please check setup logs for more information. I tried this with RAID setup and without RAID. and i could see the unallocated space to choose from on both drives and keep getting error. any other ideas for me to try if its not the iso?

Why dont you first partition and format the hard disk as per choice with the PW boot cd, then try to install windows?

Hello enoell, welcome to Seven Forums!

Use a single connected HDD and create a single Primary partition to do the install to, you can always extend the Windows partition to include the remaining unallocated space on the HDD or create additional Primary partitions or an Extended partition after the installation completes if you choose.

Have a look at steps number 9 and 10 for additional information if you continue to have issues getting the install started, in this tutorial linked below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

i will try with one hard drive connected ive read in other forums that if the flash drive is ahead in boot priority it causes problems for the install i will check the bios settings for that when i get back because my issue is i can see the partition to select to install and it simply wont do it and receive the error mentioned in previous posts.

Set the HD first to boot in BIOS setup.

Then trigger the USB flash stick installer to boot using one-time BIOS Boot Menu Key:
Asus - F8
HP/Compaq - Esc
Sony - F2
Acer - F12
Gateway - F10
eMachnes - F10
Toshiba - F12
Dell - F12
