Windows 7: weird installation problem (win7 ultimate 64bit)

weird installation problem (win7 ultimate 64bit)

I want to install windows 7 on my pc.
Everything works until windows has been booted from the dvd/usb (I tried with both)
I get the background of the installation and I can move my mouse, but the installation window doesn't pop-up.
nothing happens, I don't get an error or bsod.
I've tried removing everything except monitor, keyboard and mouse while booting, but that didn't help.
the 'windows upgrade advisor' says that my pc could run the 64bit version of windows 7.
please help.
Thanks in advance

Hello Detryoal, welcome to Seven Forums!

Where did you get the ISO/DVD you're doing the install from; how large a partition are you trying to install to?

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.

Maybe you should have a look at this information below.

After you have made backups of everything you care to save and you want to do a real wipe "clean all" to the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) have a look at this tutorial at the link below, it over-writes everything, all the old Windows code including all the old Windows drivers, giving you the best possible space to install Windows 7 to; it goes hand-in-hand with a clean install.

the iso is from the official site
I tried to boot it frmo dvd but I also tried to boot from usb, the result was the same, it loads the files and it loads windows
but I don't get the setup screen, I can't even choose the partition on which to install windows.
the other things you suggested I can't do right now because I don't have somewhere to backup my pc to at the moment.
Also from what I read elsewhere on the internet, if you have a problem with your RAM it gives an error, but I don't get one
