I don't know what you mean by the green center logo.

If you aren't getting Windows Loading Files, it could be:

Either the iso was not burned to dvd correctly

Or your machine doesn't support the WIN7 el torito.

If your machine supports booting from usb:

You could create a bootable usb from the win7 iso - there are programs that will do it for you.

Usb7ice.zip


The other way that works for users of old hardware is to create a bootable iso using vista etfsboot.com

Easy way:

Use an iso handler to pick up a vista installation iso, delete the contents, then add the contents of the win7 32 bit iso and save it. That takes less than a minute.

OR replace the win7 iso bootsector with the vista version.

I can se the windows 7 dvd and files in Vista and acces the setup but not install in windows, i don't think it can be installed on old bios? I have read about it, or is it only the 64 one? I tried the Windows 7 boot installation for 2 hours but the only thing is that the green center logo shows and the red harddrive light och the green dvd light, lights together for about 1min then nothing happens.

That is a frankenstein iso. It probably uses windows 10 setup files. You could try replacing the boot info as described in my previous couple of posts. It might work.

I am more certain it will work with a proper win7 iso, but you can try it with the iso you have
