Windows 7: Windows 7 trouble. After first required reboot.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Windows 7 trouble. After first required reboot.

I've gotten the Windows 7 RC 7100 x86 iso burned to a DvD. I have a spare HDD (30gb). I unplugged my main (XP) HDD so I wouldn't have an conflicting problems (if any) during the install.

I put in the CD and rebooted. I booted from the CD and went through the install process. It all went well, no problems, it made its main partition with the reserved system partition on the HDD.

The computer I tried putting it on has:

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ - 2.2ghz
1.5gb RAM
nVidia GeForce 6600 Graphic Card
[eMachines model: T6209]

After the initial file copy and 'expanding' it says I have to restart the computer to continue. So I did. Starts up like normal, then all I can get a glimpse of on the screen is "Loading ..." - dunno what else it says
then I get the Windows Boot Manager telling me "Windows has encoutered a Problem communicating with a device connected to your computer.

File: \Boot\BSD
Status: 0xc00000e9
Info: Unexpected I/O error occurred.

I got frustered cause this happened multiple times (kept reformatting, then reinstalling) so I put it in a computer and was gonna intend to put windows 2000 on it (Pentium 3 1ghz Processor w/ 328mb of Ram)
Once in that computer Windows 7 started up normally and finished the install process and works on that computer. Which is below the requirements.

I have another eMachines computer [Model: T3256] that I put the HDD to see if maybe its a eMachines type problem or not. Windows 7 booted up just fine on that computer too (AMD Athlon XP 2.2ghz Processor. 1gb Ram. AGP graphic card {ATI Radeon 9600})

I want to know why I cannot get Windows 7 working on the computer I originally wanted it to be on. Theres no real difference between my eMachine computers besides one has FireWire port (which I disabled during the many installations) and 1 PCI-Express slot.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't know what the problem is, hopefully someone can :/

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Did you try plugging in the XP HDD, then installing?

Based on the error, it looks like the setup is looking for a file on a HDD. Also, check to make sure the cables are connected correctly.

I'd burn the ISO again, but at a slower speed. If it still doesn't work, burn in on a different brand of media.

Windows 7 Ulti. x64

Welcome to Seven Forums, I belive you just need to plug your drive that you have 7 installed on into the cable that your xp came out of?
How about that ram. 1.5? maybe take the 500 out and just go with the 1.
