Windows 7: Windows 7 Cannot be installed !!!!

Can you boot into Safe Mode by tapping F8 at bootup? If so, check Device Manager and update drivers, especially display. There are other steps which can be tried in Safe Mode.

Try removing the DVD from tray at restart.

Unplug all other HD's and all USB devices.

Check for newer BIOS update, if none then reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

Set the SATA controller in BIOS setup to AHCI first, then IDE if neccessary.

Test your RAM with memtest86 for 5-6 passes or overnight.

Test the HD with maker's full diag/repair CD scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

Try reinstalling the video card, then disconnecting it to default to onboard video if available, then try another video card.

Try install with whole HD as partition.

Next question:

If the Windows 7 install disk is one you burned yourself it may be a bad burn and needs to be done again, if so this would be the first thing to try.

Use the free ISO burner at the link below to burn another at a speed of now more than 4x and select to let the program to verify the disk before it finishes.

Yea it is a burned DVD, unfortunately I don't have my Original DVD with me.
So I think that's the problem...Bad DVD.
Again Thanks for your time...I'll give the results later.
