You really dont want to install 64bit in 2 gigs of ram. That is the absolute minimum. It will crawl

That being said you need to boot from the dvd not try to launch it from within an OS.

Agree with Ken: You probably want 32 bit unless you plan to double RAM, and cannot run a 64 bit installer from a 32 bit OS, even mounting the image.

Burn the RTM to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed with Verify.

Then boot from the DVD, keep ethernet plugged and "connect to the internet during install" to get latest drivers/updates into installer, select Custom install, use Drive tools there to delete all partitions, create New partition(s) as you wish, then format before installing Windows 7 to first partition.

You should attempt to make Recovery disks first from the Recov partition, but it will become disabled during install so can be deleted after disks are made.

do you have a usb stick of 3 gigs or more? there are tutorials on how to install from almost any source. If you have more than one partition on your HD you can.

If you're going to use 32 bit then you can try mounting the ISO or running the unzipped Setup file from the desktop to overwrite your current Windows 7 Starter.

There is also a workaround to in-place Upgrade Starter to Ultimate which has worked for several on here.

If you want the cleanest possible format install, then use UltraISO trial version to write the ISO to a flash stick using the Bootable tab, boot stick using F-key given on first bootup screen for Boot Menu (listed under Hard drives) and select Custom install, use Drive tools to delete all, create new partition(s) as you wish, then format before installing Windows 7 to first partition.

The installer is mostly driver-complete with new arriving soon via Windows Updates. Any missing drivers or apps can be found on the Support Downloads page for your model computer.

First you should make a backup image or create the manufacturer's Recovery Disks so you can start over if there are any problems.

Next you want to uninstall all of the bloatware, which is reason alone for a clean reinstall.

If there is Norton, google the Norton removal tool and use it.

After uninstalling all of the unwanted programs, use Regedit to delete any remaining listings for the uninstalled programs by name in 2nd and 3rd registy hives Software keys. Set a restore point before registry edits.

Now download and install state-of-the-art CCleaner and Auslogics Disk Defragger and run the Disk cleaner/Reg cleaner and Disk/reg defrag.

Now modify this workaround designed to downgrade the RTM to a lesser version to instead in-place Upgrade Starter to Ultimate: In-Place Upgrade between Win7 versions

You will be changing the registry key to the exact wording shown for Windows 7 ULTIMATE. This tricks the installer into thinking that it is doing a Repair Install (upgrade over itself) which is the only in-place allowed between Windows 7 versions. This is because MS wants people to buy Anytime upgrades between versions.
