Windows 7: Can't install Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit?

Buy a DVD and burn ISO to it using ImgBurn at 4x speed which gets it right every time.

okay, i still have the disc that poweriso came on and its serial. I shall try installing in compat vista. If all else fails, can i make a small partition to add the contents of the iso to boot from? I'm sorry for any confusion and wasted time.

You cannot mount 64 bit to install on a 32 bit system. BUY a DVD and burn 64 bit to reinstall and stop wasting our time answering the same question over and over.

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to waste your time. But as I didn't know that a 64bit iso wont stay mounted. I found my Xp 64bit disc but that wont install properly like vista. When my comp restarts to set up userr etc it doesn't. It asks to boot from disc. If I leave it, it says 'error loading operating system' and if i boot from disc it tries to reinstall. And i can't repair install because i have no user account. Again. I'm sorry Greg. I don't mean to offend you and waste your time. Rangi.

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

It sounds like you have a bad install ISO or burn.

I plan to activate it once I have my internet connection back. As for where I bought it, i spoke with and re-downloaded the iso. But as my XP disc is not a burn it should install. I plan on installing xp 64 then running the iso from inside xp. All i need to do is install xp and that would be fine. But both vista and xp have the whole 'error loading os' both of them were bought instore. I'm terrebly sorry for any inconvenience

Why go through all the trouble to install XP, which isn't needed even if you have an Upgrade version, just to install Win7 from XP?

Just buy a single DVD, burn the ISO to it, boot it and clean install 64 bit without the hassle. You need the disk for repairs anyway.

If it's Upgrade version it will see the XP on the HD when it boots and allow the use of Upgrade version key, even if you go on to use Custom Install>Drive Options to delete, repartition and format.

It's worth taking the steps to get this right so that you'll have a perfect reinstall, especially since it's easier than the convoluted plan you've made. Read over these steps to get a perfect reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7

It could be the ISO file, the burn (use ImgBurn at 4x speed) or something about the HD. Follow the steps in the blue link and if it fails post back exactly where it failed (step #) and the exact text of any error message or description of failure. We will help you work through it if you do this.

I can tell you. As I said earlier, both XP and Vista are both original discs. (were never isos) they both install completely until it has to reboot. (very last step) exact error 'Error loading OS...'
