Windows Installation through USB.Error pops up after starting services

Set the hard drive first to boot in BIOS setup, then trigger the installer using One-time BIOS Boot Menu key. At reboots obviously do not start the install over again, and if it interferes unplug the installer.

If these don't work start a new thread and explain your problem so that we can understand it.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

Amazingly the problem got solved !!!
What i did is,
1.Resetted BIOS settings.
2.Formatted the Installation partition using diskpart.
3.Set USB as first priority in boot order (Earlier i manually selected USB from the boot menu to install).

Dont know what the problem is, but it got solved...... Guess patience has rewarded me.....

In the Registry Editor..
Browse to....
HKLocal machine/SYSTEM/SETUP/STATUS/ChildCompletion, and after highliting childcompletion,on the right hand side check for setup.exe. if the value is 1 change it to 3.(by double clicking on setup.exe and changing the value shown in the box).
Then close the registry editor and then also close the black window.
Then click on OK for the error and the computer will restart and the installation may complete. just try it and let me know if it worked.
