But it's not normally necessary.

You more likely have some other issues.

Can't hurt to use diskpart, but it may not help.

I too agree it's probably not needed; it's just another thing to check to make sure.

How do you plan to activate Ultimate?

Use the official ISO burned to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

windows 7 ultimate

Hi, i still have not solved this issue. I cant launch diskpart because i cant even get into the windows cd as my machine is being recognised as a 32 bit machine and it wont open teh 64 bit version unless i boot from the "press any key to boot from cd " at the boot.

When i try and do it like this, it comes up with a black screen, loads windows files (a white bar at the bottom that loads twice) and then it comes up with a black screen, with "loading windows" its at this point that i can get no further, it just hangs without the whirling windows colours entering the middle of the screen and i have to restart my computer and reload using the 32 bit version. Once i get back to the desktop it tells me that "this version of windows could not be installed etc etc".

Please help me, perhaps i could attach diagnostic information about my computer that would help you solve this issue for me?

Of course you want to "press any key to boot disk" as you must boot installer.

The installer is probably bad.

Where did you get WIn7 Pro installer, and how do you plan to activate it?

How is Ultimate activated now?

To be sure download and burn to DVD or write to flash stick the latest official installer with SP1 from Steps 1 and 2 in Clean Reinstall tutorial. There are other steps there to assure you get a perfect reinstall.

If this fails check in BIOS setup to make sure HD is registering. Set SATA controller to AHCI for it. Unplug or disable all other HD's.

If that fails wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean Command. But you need to be able to boot the installer to get to Command Line by pressing Shift + F10 at first screen to run the commands given earlier.

Keep us posted. We have a 100% install rate if you follow the steps closely, ask back questions, and work with us.
