Windows not installing on 64 bit


I'm trying to do a clean install of windows 7 and it installs all the way up to 90% and then just stops. its a copied CD the windows 32bit version installs fine but the 64 bit just wont go any further.

Does anyone know why?

Hi there
I assume that there IS sufficient disc space and your computer is genuinely a 64 bit machine.

Ensure that you have a LARGE enough partition to install the OS in -- 60 GB should be more than enough.

Now just let it run --it might take a long time but it should work.

Hello Stuart29, welcome to Seven Forums!

As you say it's a "copied CD", first Windows 7 won't fit on a CD it must be a DVD for it to fit.

You probably got a bad burn and doing it again will sort it, use the ISO burner at the link below to do a second burn at no greater than 4x speed and click the 'verify' box so the program will check the quality of the burn before it finishes.
Do remember to post back with the outcome.
