Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 problem

I downloaded the newest (I tried beta and the previous one) version of what you told me to. But when installing I got this message http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/7497/errorqb.jpg
And I think I know why:

If you don't know what a BIOS is, nor what IDE drive means, or a mainboard, then installing an OS is clearly not for you.

Good luck.

You should have listened to this advice I gave you three days ago.

Still counts.
Get a friend over with the right skills and knowledge.

Good luck

Don't you think I would have done that already if I knew someone good with computers?

Though I can't imagine you not knowing anybody that knows a little more about setting up a computer than you do.

Then the last part counts: "installing an OS is clearly not for you."

I don't mean this a harsh as it sounds.
I am trying to protect you from disaster.

You could easily ruin both installs when you do something wrong, and lose your files.
Then what?
You can't expect us to run you through every little detail of installing.

We have lives too, although it doesn't seem so.

Another option that no one has explored, is taking the computer to a shop that will install it for the OP.. like squonksc has pointed out, installing an OS from scratch is not for everyone, regardless of how much we want to help. There is a time to let a professional do the job and that time seems to have come.

Windows 7 x64 finally!
 
 

Unsafe, you were trying to install a Video driver for a card you don't have
I tend to agree with my colleagues. I am afraid you might damage some of your files by following advice which is not based on the compelte picture, since we can't be there to be able to see everything
There are stores like Staples that offer troubleshooting service. I don't know where you are, but maybe you could now use some of that.
Sorry that we can't help, but as it was said, we should know where to stop before something irreversible (like loosing youor personal files) is done

Unsafe, back to basics: ou said installing Win7 32 bits worked. Do you need 64 bits? Are you going to use more than 3G memory, do you do heavy gaming? If not, Win7 32 bits should be OK (it might have a better performance with your 2G than the 64 bit version). Then I recomend you do a clean install of Win7 32, have a working machine and enjoy the OS!

Are you getting any farther along on the install? In your first are you say you make it to restart? If so then try this tut.

And have you tried installing from within xp, stick dvd in cd drive. then open it into explorer. and click on setup .exe ( don't auto run it)

I don't think you understand my problem. I don't know how to get rid of my failed installation of win 7 32 bit(I call it failed because when choosing win7 in the windows load screen it doesn't actually load the windows, it loads it to delete it(because during install it stopped and smthn bad happened) but it doesn't delete itself no matter how many restarts it does or how many hours I wait) , but if installing windows 64bit would fix that problem then it doesn't matter right?
I didn't come here to ask for help on how to press INSTALL button, I came here cause something else happened(like it always does...). it opens an error, saying that 64 bit cannot be installed for some idiotic reason (obviously that I have xp). It does not react when I boot it from DVD (the dvd is fine itself, I tried it on another pc). IT DOES NOT LOAD THE INSTALL SCREEN WHEN BOOTED FROM DVD!!!!
