installation problems...xp32-7-64

ok, so i got the iso burned to a disk.

ive repeatedly tried to load it up.

steps:

windows loading files - success.
flaming window and "starting windows" - success

then this comes up instead of the install options

any ideas on what to do or what im doing wrong?




downloaded from digital river, did the commands to make it an iso, used active iso burner to make the disk.

there are no error messages. i am going from windows xp 32bit to 64bit 7.

Maybe a little more info on where you got the files and how you burned them.

Any error messages, what versions (ultimate, pro, etc.) are you coming from and going to?

Can you get Digital River to send you a DVD?

There is probably a problem with you files or the .iso making and burning process, but I do not know for sure.

Welcome to Seven Forums.

We have seen many errors due to burning the DVD. Burn at 2x speed.

Or try this USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

I think the real Error is you can not go from 32 bit to 64 bit
