i have also attached the windows 7 upgrade advisor file.
i would have bet on this after seeing that your hard drive is pata. there comes a time when people must buy new hardware. your system is too old.
I see nothing in his report that indicates his system cannot run Windows 7. IDE drives work just fine, his processor is fine. He just won't have Aero effects, and even that might work after 7 is up and running.

the only reason for the os to rollback is because it cannot run on the hardware the person is trying to run it on. even though 7 will run on older hardware than vista does not mean it will run on everything. as for pata it is the older form of ide. he might try to do multiple wipes of the drive after backing up what he wants to keep and doing a clean install. upgrade attempts do not always work even when the os lets you install it.

Can you try installing from XP to a new partition? The installer will configure a dual boot menu.

We can later help to remove the dual boot and recover the XP space into Win7. It need only be a transition.

You can use Partition Wizard to shrink the XP partition first, then Create a New partition formatted Primary NTFS. Attachment 43998

Install Win7 from XP to the new partiition.

Back up your files first and consider backing up an Image of XP which can be reimaged if you need to start over; shrinking operations can fail.

I would definately agree on the dual boot idea
Have had a code 5 error before caused by the fact win7 does not support some old IDE cd/dvd drives.
I attempted a clean install on this machine and it refused to boot from disk period
I eventually had to reinstall XP, run 7 from desktop then remove XP after

You will need to make a recovery disk as soon as you install 7 before you remove old os or if you have any probs you may not be able to run recovery software on win7 dvd, should boot fine from cd though

Hope this helps

Hi

What size HD are you installing to?

Do you want to try running the installer from XP to a second partition, since it will run from XP?

The log shows failure trying to lay down the image which is probably because of the XP formatting when it tries to overwrite XP. XP has a slightly different partition table which could upset the installer on PATA drive.

If you instead create a second partition formatted NTFS using Partition Wizard linked in my post above, it should be able to lay down the image there.

Backup your files and an image of your XP if you want the ability to recover it.

Look for the USB flash stick under Hard Drives in the Boot Menu, not Flash drives.

It will be listed by its make and model.

If the flash stick will not boot using UltraISO, then try formatting the stick Primary in Disk Management, loading Win7 files into the root and booting then. If this fails, then try Win2Flash: http://dottech.org/featured/9157

You never responded to the suggestion to install to a second partition from XP, since the installer would run in XP.

Please also respond to where you got Windows 7 ISO and key.
