Anyway, you can find info on & download Windows 7 Recovery Discs here: Download Windows 7 System Recovery Discs — The NeoSmart Files
The installation disc works fine on my Uncles laptop(Which is what I'm using to type this).

Are you sure the computer is booting from the win7 install disk? Boot from the disk and get into the bios by tapping whatever function key your computer requires, then set CD/DVD at the top of the boot order, press F10 to save and exit.

You can also use a partition wizard boot cd to wipe the existing partitions and create new, clean ones.

That's what I have the BIOS set to at the moment.

I tried to boot up the Windows XP recovery console, but when I type in del c:\boot.ini it says that no matching files were found.

EDIT: Typed in chkdsk, and it said there was no errors so it didn't check. I typed in chkdsk /p, and it says there are one or more errors on the volume. Is this a physical problem of the hard drive or not?

This is still not clear.

How many os's are you planning to run?

are you duel booting windows xp and windows 7 or are looking to just have windows 7?

Atm the computer is trying to boot into xp, and failing. Have you formatted your hard drive and then partitioned it or have you used some kind of software to partition your hard drive? (this can cuase errors and problems if you partitioned your windows drive)

If you are just trying to intsall windows 7, and completely move over to one single os, go into your bios and set your boot options and just choose to boot from cd and disable the rest or ensure that your cd drive is choosen as the first boot opiton atm it is still trying to boot from the hard drive and subsequently failing.

Sorry if i missed it but what are your system specs?

Reading this it sounds like you have formated and then partitioned which means you will not be able to useaccess the recovery console as there is nothing to recover, XP is gone to get xp back you will ned to re-install using an xp install disc or upgrade and use windows 7.

Chkdsk will off course say everything is fine and will do so regardless of wheather an os is installed as it is a small program that checks the hard disc is ok and is not related to an os being installed/working correctly unless you have a failing drive, which it, sounds like you dont.
