Windows 7: Windows 7 installation won't start up

Windows 7 installation won't start up

Hi guys

At the moment I running windows 7 ultimate 32 bits on my PC. I would like to switch to 64 bits, and install a new SSD, but when I use the DVD in the drive do and I reboot, it boots from the DVD, loads the files but then just a blank welcome screen appears. I also tried it on another PC, but there it does start normally and I get a welcome screen with the first step (choosing a country, etc.).
It can't be a stuck DVD-drive, it plays other DVDs without problems.

I have a Asus P5Q SE Plus Motherboard, Intel Celeron E3200 CPU, 6 GB RAM (that's why I want to switch to 64 bits).

I really hope someone could help me, cause I don't know what the problem is.

Tnx!

Hi,

Is there a chance your DVD drive might be faulty, or just have trouble reading that disk? Take it out of the equation : download the required Windows 7 ISO, and then make it bootable using the Windows 7 USB DVD Installer, and then try install from that by booting from the USB.

ISO Downloads:
Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life

Installer:
Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool Creates and Makes Bootable DVD Disc or USB Flash/Hard Drive from ISO Image My Digital Life

@Golden: I already tried, but then the same problem occurs: it loads the files but then just a blanco blue welcome-screen appears :S .. really don't know what to do.

I also tried to run the setup from windows. The installation will start then, but stucks at 6% of unpacking files.

If the CPU is 64 bit capable then your problem is likely the installer itself.

Where did you get Windows 7? Did your burn the DVD yourself? If so, burn another using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

You must boot 64 bit installer and cannot run it from a 32 bit OS. How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD
