Windows 7: Installation Help!!!

In that case I'd test the RAM now using memtest86 for 5-6 passes or overnight: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Then I would create a full partition of the HD so you can run Disk Check on it from Repair console Command line, followed by the HD maker's extended diagnostics/repair CD scan: HD Diagnostic

This will clear the hardware. Do you have access to any retail Win7 installer?

In that case our time wasn't wasted at all. Let us know how it goes. Glad to help.

We'll need to move cleaning DVD up the list a bit. Not everyone keeps them in a case, some are tossed in drawers.
