Windows 7: Windows 7 freezes after first stage of installing..

Windows 7 freezes after first stage of installing..

I'm trying to install Windows 7 32bit on one of my drives via Vista, I click install on the DVD and click the drive. It does the first stage of installing and expanding files (whatever that is!). Then it restarts.. upon restart it boots onto Windows Setup and I get the logo which glows for a while then freezes.

I've looked this up and i've removed ram so I just have 1stick of 1gig and i've unplugged various USB items except my keyboard and mouse and still get the issue.

Any ideas?
Thanks

If you have retail then you get MS Tech support which is worth the price of the product alone.

The number should be on the disk.

Please let us know how MS tech support performs on Win7. They have never skimped before, let's hope they're using those billions well there.

Will do.
Will have to wait though, as i'm getting my system moved into another case and onto another motherboard while i'm away for a week. Just thought id try out windows 7 on another drive before I start fresh.. Hoped to see before the whole PC sortout but looks like it'l have to wait as i'm off tommorrow!

Thanks for your help
