Please edit your profile and add all hardware information.
What BIOS you have, Legacy - MBR or UEFI - GPT?
What Windows are you trying to install? 32 or 64 bits?
If you don't give us all the information, we are shooting in the dark.

Wait wait a big change the second time when I tried to install the windows it actually loaded the files after a bit though a message poped up saying something that "make sure all the files are available for the install " or something like that .

As you only have 2G of memory you should install win 7 32 bits as you intended.
Follow this steps and you're will have it done.

"Windows cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation " I hit OK then after a bit another error pops up
" the application was unable to start correctly (0x0000006).click OK to close the application" it happens whenever it is about to extract the files. Any assistance with that would be much appreciated

Exactly what media are you using to install?

Something you bought? Where?

Something you downloaded? Where?

Something you burned to a DVD?

Something you put on a USB flash drive?

Something you borrowed?

Bad install disc, you have to create another install dvd or usb stick.

Let us know what version of windows you want and what language and we will post the Microsoft link to let you download a fresh iso file, you can use that to create a new install dvd or usb stick.
