Unable to install windows 7

ellow all,

I'm trying to install a windows 7 home premium on a laptop but it wont let me.

when i put the CD in and boot from CD everything goes well it loads his files and i can select the language settings, than i click to install and i need to choose between upgrade and clean install, if i choose clean install the click to install window appears again, i can do this all day cause it keeps looping the same process.

i tried to install vista as well but same results than i thought lets install windows xp to do a upgrade install but installing xp wasn't successful either.

any ideas questions or you missing some info let me know =D

Where did you get Win7? If you burned the DVD, confirm the ISO integrity and burn another using ImgBurn at 4x speed with Verify. Next try writing ISO to flash stick using this tool with Win7 in dropdown: Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3

If it's retail Win7, try writing DVD to flash stick using UltraISO: on File tab select Open DVD, on Bootable tab select Write Disk Image, Format, Write. Boot under USB or HD's.

Is there a newer BIOS update on computer or mobo Support Downloads webpage? If not, Clear the CMOS:
Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS
While in BIOS setup check SATA controller setting. Set to AHCI to try install first, then IDE if necessary.

Test the HD using maker's diag/repair extended CD scan: HD Diagnostic. Use same CD to wipe the HD.

Create and format a partition using Diskpart or bootable partition manager, then mark it Active to try install.

Test your RAM: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Hi Masofdisas,

I just have one question here. Apart from the above instructions, Just I want to make sure, if the loop appears once after clicking the "New copy windows installation" option 'or' after the 'Copying files' process in Windows 7?
