Are you booting the WIn7 DVD? Is this a DVD your burned yourself, and has it been used successfully before?

Try wiping the HD first to overwrite conflicting or corrupt code: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

If the problem persists, please post back the exact wording of the error code, or Google it.

You download an iso? This would be pirating and we will not help you.

This is a guess - but it may be an upgrade instead of the full version.

Burn another DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

Try the other steps given.

Then try wiping the HD first. Test your RAM and HD.

Try zeroing the HDD before reinstalling. What's probably happening, if it isn't a problem with your CD/DVD drive or the disk you're using, is that you have fragments of data from previous installs that are causing problems.

boot from the DVD then type shift+f10
when the command prompt opens and x:/sources appears type the following commands, one at a time and press enter after each one

Diskpart

list disk

sel disk 0

clean all (this will take a long time because it erases your entire HDD much more thoroughly than formatting

exit

exit

then click install windows now and select the custom installation option
click on drive options, create a new partition, format it, then proceed with installing windows
