BSOD when installing windows seven

I have a vista installation and a vista recovery partition.
I am trying to install windows 7 home on my laptop (vaio VGN-FW35G).
I formatted drive C. When installing windows 7 using CD I get the blue screen.
Can anybody help me with this?
I should note that installing windows vista using the recovery drive completes without any error.
thanks in advance.

Have you run the win 7 upgrade advisor to ensure hardware compatibilty ?
Quite often errors like this are due to faulty install media you can try burning another disc at slower speed or download install media again and use that

Also remember you can install from usb which is often easier

Make your Vista Recovery disks, Back up your files, unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes.

If an EFI BIOS, enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module.

Set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt.You are creating the partition here for the purpose of marking it Active which overcomes certain install failures.
