You need to load the chipset driver. What chipset does your MB has?

He should not have to do that if it`s an older PC and using a dvd.

That message most always comes from a corrupt install dvd or a dvd burned too fast.

Without an activation key he is most likely screwed anyway, he can try to pull the key from the current install, if he hasn`t messed that up already and try to use it for activation, it might work it might not.

Brian, it's a Xeon MB and the chipset requires a SATA driver that it's not on the Win 7 installation disk.

The key is an OEM SLP, so he most likely can`t use it

Luiz, I `ve installed 7 on dozens (not gonna say hundreds) of PC`s with a Xeon CPU using the dvd. HP`s Dell`s etc, never had an issue.

So right now I'm trying to eliminate the DVD media problem.

The md5 is correct, I found it here: forums.mydigitallife.info somewhere..

And I run a test on the DVD; there are no errors, the DVD matches the ISO file.

Should I still burn it at a low speed ? This wouldn't make any sense to me.

Should I do as requested, and try to provide the installer with a driver for my DVD drive ? Windows is using cdrom.sys and iaStorF.sys according to device manager.

Its full name is hp DVD-RAM GHA3N SCSI CdRom Device

Do you need to download a fresh Iso file to create a new install dvd ? Or did you do that already ?

I can post the direct Microsoft Link to download a fresh Iso file if you`d like.

What language do you want ?

Your computer has USB 2.0 and USB3.0 (Marvel) ports. Be sure you use USB 2.0

At this point I'm going to try everything.. Please, provide a link for an us-eng image with a checksum if possible. I already have a checksum'd french ISO file for W7 PRO COEM.7

Also the seller didn't really answer me about that installation media. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt because it's Sunday

Do you think it's too much to ask the seller to have a proper installation media, or a clear method to create my own ?
