When you burned the DVD's again, what did you burn them from? What was the source of the ISO?

You may need to try another method to boot USB flash stick. I use UltraISO trial, load in ISO then Write Image to stick on Bootable tab, format first.

Boot stick from BIOS Boot Menu, often under Hard Drives.

Yeah i have that selected hmmm.

The source of the ISO was the retail copy. I put the retail in, the comp extracted the image/files then used imgburn to write that data onto a blank dvd with 4.7gb

just like the tutorials say. Same with the usb.

The USB stick needs to be written to as a bootable USB drive.

Omg i think its finally workingggg
the mouse icon is smaller than usual and so is the text!
I haven't had this before yet! But i am at the "completing installation" part...
I make it here every time after 4 houra of "expanding files" then the computer turns off. Hmmm this step will probably take 15-20 mins to show any signs of failure :/
but let's pray >.<
