Instal Problem

Near the end of my Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit install on a DVD I booted from, its crashed the PC. After I restart it says "Setup is initializing resources" or something, then it tells me an unexpected error or restart has occurred." I've reinstalled and tried many fixes but have yet to find a solution.

Yeah I did. Burned it with the program Alcohol 120% I think it was called.

First thing, I would try turning off your overclocking.

Can you try installing from a USB flash drive? Brink created a great Tutorial on how to create a USB install drive here.

the ISO from MS? did you burn it at a slow speed?

90% of failed installs are bad burns/ISO's

Oh I didn't even mess with the settings. Should I try a slow burn or just do a install from a USB drive? And should I wipe my HDD this time or just install?

If I were you I would download it again, and burn it at a slow speed (alcohol is fine). You are burning just the one ISO file right?, not the files and folders?

Just the iso. I asked someone locally for help and he started talking to me about the drivers for it. I should be able to get the OS running even without all the right drivers right? And do I still need to take off XP for it or can I have both of them running?

even without the right drivers. most drivers are not loaded till after the login screen. If you safe boot most drivers arent loaded.

You can have XP and win 7 on the same machine but they should be in different partitions on it.

this problem is either the ISO/DVD or some hardware problem like overclocking.

I dont remember what your system specs are could you list them or put them in your system specs (lower left corner of your posts)
