    Vista Ultimate x64

    I'm having the same problem. I tried your suggestions... re-burned the ISO at slower speeds, on different media and switched drives. I tried different disks on each drive but I get the same message everytime. When I try to look at the contents on the disk Windows basically locks up. Any ideas?

    have you checked your hash and verified your disc???

    since you switched drives this means that your download is courrupted....

    download it again....

    like limeos said this can also happen ramndomly....

    you might need to try a few times...

    windows Seven 32bit RC

    I have the same issue on an old Epox 8RDA3+ and Samsung S-Ata2 drive. My DVDrom is also S-ata and totally new.
    I have downloaded 3 times Seven32bit, burned at x2 speed, but i always get this error message. So I am wondering if I could load it from an external drive? But this way should i do something to make this ext drive bootable? Maybe this could solve this annoying problem.

    welcome jeanfrederic to the forums

    as you can see there are different reasons to why this error is happening....

    can you by any chance burn it from another drive and use another drive (or even a flash or external HDD...)to read it...

    if you want to use it from a flash or external HDD check here...

    Hi darkassain,
    Thx for your support.

    I'm tryin and tryin, but at the end of the procedure, i alway get the message
    drive specified invalid (in french "specification du lecteur non valide".
    And then, when i try to open my drive, it says it is not formatted.
    Whats the f***? I do not see where i am wrong.

    EDIT: after "assign letter y", my drive is not formated anymore and i cannot open it anymore.
    Note the mounted drive is GB1CULFRE_EN_DVD(H:) so the last command is xcopy h:\*.* /s/e/f y:\

    Thanks, Darkassasin. I downloaded a fresh copy and burned it slow. I can open this one in Explorer to see the contents. Install went without a hitch!

    Windows Vista

    I am suffering from the same issue. I have burned the .ISO 4 times, at varying speeds. It runs just fine inside vista, but when I boot from it does the OSImage error when it says "Setup is starting...". I've tried to just keep clicking to see if it will eventually read it, but it never does. You would think they would have a fixed beta out by now to resolve this issue.

    @darkassain: Thank you man, it worked.
    @atratus: be sure your hard drive is already formated NTFS before tryin to install seven.

    Ok, well I get the same error on an old Emachines laptop, and I've tried it on 2 different DVD burners. What would you suggest doing?
