Hi Caretaker, I can confirm that the laptop (hp dv4-1275mx) is english version, and that the Win 7 I'm trying to install is english. The iso I downloaded was from Digital River and not the MS website. However, I have also created an iso image from the authentic win7 dvd that I revieved in the mail.


Hah Hah. I tried the Windows tool too. Didn't work . (Corrupted file on disk) I found that NERO was best. Free Image burn was a good 2nd, both done the job well.
Try a Disk check/ Default BIOS/ Clean the ram sticks with a Pencil eraser Then try it again Good Luck

PS If problems persist We will need your exact make and model no.

Had completely forgotten that method for removing dirt and oxidation which we used in the Navy. Remember to ground yourself before touching your RAM sticks as a static charge will kill them.
