Yes it did, I tried to install both 32bit and 64bit and I'm not quite sure what to do now because I've wasted most the day trying to do it now I'm back where I started only this time with a formatted vista OS.

Hyper threading is intel's technology to virtualize another core. it comes from the pentium 4 processor. If you've ever seen a pentium 4 with HT enabled, you'll see that it has two graphs for a single core processor.
If your processor was HT enabled, you'd see 4 graphs, representing 4 cores, but really you only have 2 cores. the other 2 are just virtualized

Thanks anyway, back to the issue of installing windows 7 Ultimate. I'm clueless of what to do. I've tried for the second day now I burned windows 7 ultimate onto 4 differen't disks but with the same software thinking I was doing somthing wrong only to get boot failures on all four atempts.

Thorsen, that is good information.
I might add that a good program to test stability is Prime 95. Used by overclockers everywhere.
Also, be sure that your ram isn't overclocked too much. if it is, your system won't boot and you can damage your ram.

Hyper threading was for single core CPU's to act like dual cores. It had one core, but two threads active at the same time. The C2Duo has two physical cores but no hyper threading. if it did, there would be 4 threads running concurrently.

^^^^ I think this is correct. Please correct me if I am wrong.

This sounds like your Windows 7 installation is not complete, or corrupted. is this a retail disc?

You are correct. It was first introduced with Pentium 4's

Is there anyway to enable "Hyper Threading"? If so will I see an increase in proformance.

You beat me this time josef.

Where did the installation media come from. Was it downloaded from internet and burned to a disc? If so, the burn might be corrupted. Or is this original installation discs from OEM or Purchased in store?

A friend gave it to me, not quite sure how he got his hands on it.

What's the name of this certain App? It had a black background/GUI, and it could tweak parts of W7, like disabling the Watermark, adding the "Take Control" thing on right-click menus, enabling DreamScenes, etc.
