Could you try another DVD drive, maybe this one is having trouble reading the DVD ?

Is there anything on the drive that you want to save? I'm thinking you might want to nuke the entire drive using gparted or some other utility, then try installing 7 again. If Vista doesn't install now, removing all partitions might be just what the doctor ordered (no pun intended, Doc!)

My only thoughts are something with my mobo or other hardware? (I did do what you said Dave with the quiet & cool, as well as minimal hardware.)

It perplexes me that Vista now won't install either on a clean WinXP install (and the WinXP is a retail copy). Vista is a copy I have used 2 times already on this machine, I got free from a college I attend part time as part of their student software program. This is the first time that has ever happened that Vista gives me the same error as Win7.

My only thoughts are to stop everything and wait til I upgrade to a newer machine in a year or two and sit on XP... what is frustrating is that even if I want to do Vista, it won't let me anymore even though a few months ago it was no issue.
Did you check the Plug and Play setting in BIOS?

This worked for Asus boards previously.

Are you using a DVI cable?
Use VGA if possible.

Do you have two RAM cards?
Try running a memtest, just to rule that out.
Memtest86

Did you try Adrians suggestion to load new MOBO drivers including chipset?

Let us know the suggestions that you try, we can continue to pursue this.

Here is another idea

Insert the Vista Install DVD
move to CMD and do a new FORMAT of HDD
Then replace with the Win 7 Install DVD....
Reboot and it should work then....
Vista Format auto sets HD to active.

Therefore the HDD is pre-formated & should be seen by win7 Install

FIXED

I actually grabbed a Celeron 2.66Ghz board and installed upon booting up with the Win7 DVD. Worked. I went over everything with the ASUS board and could never find out what went on with it. My brother has the same board and used the Win7 Beta and it worked for him. Either way, I've solved my problem. Win7 is running fast and no issues.

I'd like to thank everyone who has taken the time to help me try to troubleshoot this. I wish I had more time to keep diggin at the ASUS issue but alas I have my Win7 running. Thanks again!

Now I can update my system spec here

For whatever reason, after I rotate a photo (JPEG) to right-side up (normal view) and attach it in my Yahoo mail program (latest beta version), the recipient still receives the photo horizontally, needing to be rotated 90 degrees (???). How odd is that???? Any suggestions? :confused:
