Any Over Clocking of ram or cpu ?
Best to have 2gb ram or less for initial install !
Suggestion, remove everything not essential to loading Win_7, from the system.
No printers, gamepads, second monitors, scanners, external devices, flash drives etc...
Connection between Video card & Monitor works best for install with a standard VGA cable !
Do you have a single OS on your computer or are you multi-booting ?
Are you using USB or eSATA to connect to any external HD's ?
How many HD's are connected to you system ? IDE or SATA ?
How many DVD drives are connected to your systen ? IDE or SATA Drives ?
When you see HD's in Disk Management is there a yellow triangle and explanation point ?
Do you have a single OS on your computer already or are you planing on multi-booting?
Or is this a New Clean HD ? Have you pre-formatted the HD ?

The windows 7 i have is x64
im not sure if it's a .iso file.
Any Over Clocking of ram or cpu ? None
I only have the single Windows XP Pro running on my computer.
Are you using USB or eSATA to connect to any external HD's ? No, I'm not using any of those.
Only 1 DVD-drive is connected to my system. IDE. But I also have a Virtual DVD drive.
not sure what you mean by the yellow triangle, but i have provided you with an ss of it.
disregard the fact that the elements external hdd is there, it's an external and im just copying some stuff over. (before i tried to install, i already unplugged my external, so that's not the problem)
I just want to get rid of Windows XP on my computer and install windows 7.
the hard drive is partitioned into 2 parts. C drive and D drive.
C drive is 40 gigs, and i plan to install my windows 7 onto that.
regarding the copy of my windows 7. when i click on it from my computer it says. File system: UDF. would that be right?
and here is a screen shot of the files inside my windows 7 DVD.
i just wanted to ask, when i install windows 7, do i have to install my drivers manually or will they automatically install after i install windows 7?
