Windows 7 Home Edition x64
Error code: 0x8007048F while installing 64 bit/32 bit Windows 7

I did download the iso that i got from Microsoft Moderator and it was Home premium 64 bit, did burn whith 2x whith imgburn and verify succefully then i did put it inside my pc and got that error on expanding fils 0%. Im using a Hp pavillion p6310sc . I had when i bought computer Home premium 64 bit but i tryed my friends 32 bit ultimate before but now i tried that too and gets same error. I got this issues while my computer did frezze and waited like 30 minutes then restarted pc and got something windows cannot boot so i did do the repair automatically for 12 hours and did not happend anything so did turn off pc, I tryed system recovery was on 0% for about 12 hours but when we did install 32 bit utlimate we did by mistake format the recovery harddisk so i dont have it on the hdd anymore. I have even formated the hdd whith diskpart clean all so its nothing on it but stills error and no install. Im writing this on a ipad and have not have my pc for 4 weeks so i pray and hope we can fix this pc because right now i have only economy for a hdd ans maybe cd rom but not a new computer. Please hope my pc will work, I have gotten a new error now when removing 2 gb of ram. Error code: 0x800703EE

Check in BIOS setup if you have an EFI BIOS. Is there an EFI Boot disk in BIOS boot order? If so remove it and set DVD drive to boot first. Look for another setting for Legacy BIOS to enable. Then wipe the HD with Clean command again and try install.

If no EFI BIOS, reset the BIOS to defaults, set SATA controller at AHCI to try install. Unplug all other HD's and peripherals.

Test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+ for 5-6 passes. Test your HD with maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan.

Will the disk boot on another PC and see it's HD to prepare for install? If not start over with a new official ISO burned to disk or written to flash stick using Steps 1 and 2 in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
