Windows 7: Unable to boot from disc

I may not have explained it very well. The program appears to install correctly, and open correctly, but when a file is opened in the program it crashes. There are no signs that anything is wrong with it, but the program runs fine on other systems running XP. That's not the only reason my mate wants XP though.

Going back to the disc, I tried another installation disc and that one booted absolutly fine, and that didn't come up with 'press any key to boot'. Also still can't boot to W7.

You wiped the HD so Win7 is no longer there.

Seems you've confirmed the XP CD is bad.

Yes sorry, I wasn't sure how to do that without booting into the OS, mark the partition as active that is. Could you please tell me? And I presume I do the system repairs from the installation disc.

Whoops didn't notice the colour change, thanks for that. I'll try to re-burn the disc and get the existing OS to boot later.

Um, there are apparently no partitions. Does that W7 has gone?

Do a detail disk at the Diskpart command prompt.

Ok, disk check... The first photo sort of proves that the OS is gone.

As long as I can reinstall 7 even after installing XP, there's no real need to worry right now, but it is puzzling...

Did you follow the steps exactly in SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD ?

NLite will pick up the drivers needed once you identify which are the SATA and IDE storage drivers and point to them. You don't have to do anything else.
