Windows 7: MSDNAA Windows 7 Professional Installation problem

MSDNAA Windows 7 Professional Installation problem

I downloaded and installed Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and burned the ISO on a DVD. I then proceed to double click on the program which is named GRMCPRXFRER_EN_DVD.

After, the permission windows pops out and tells me if I want to allow the program named "sperr32.exe" run and and I click Allow.

A window with an "X" appears and say
"This installation disc isn't compatible with your version of Windows. To upgrade, you need the correct installation disc. For more information, check your computer's system information. To install a new copy of Windows, restart (boot) your computer using the installation disc, and then select Custom (advanced)."

I already did the "Windows Upgrade Advisor" and it says Windows 7 will work fine but that I must do a custom installation.

I have searched everywhere and the answer I find most is to do a clean installation, which I don't really understand.

So if you can please help with this problem. Either tell me if there's a solution or give me detailed steps as to a clean installation using the ISO on DVD please and Thank you.

Your specs say Vista 32 bit, & you have win7 64 bit install. You cannot upgrade 32 to 64, It must be a clean install. See our tutorials section for clean install.

I apologize, I just downloaded it but not installed yet, I'm in the process lol.

I looked at the following tutorial - Clean Install Windows 7

but none of the steps that I saw seem to occur to me.

Step 2: When prompted, press any key to boot from the installation DVD - That never happens.

The only thing that shows up is the F2 or F12, I press F2 and then go to boot and choose the DVD drive, save and exit, and yet still nothing happens.

Since yours is an older 1.6ghz computer it might be better to download the 32 bit & install it. Did you do the Microsoft compatability test for your computer?

I agree with Doc, 32 might be the way to go

You have to go to windows.old. Look for the file or documents that are needed and treat them just as any other file; copy and paste or send to etc.
I am sure that you are not talking about restoring the old operating system
