    They are Jack. The only file you will need it the ISO file. It should be something like 3 GB for the 32-bit version, and around 4 GB for the 64-bit version.

    The ISO is 2.7GB. I guess this is a problem?

    Sorry, I just doubled checked the actual size. That is the correct size.

    Oh thank goodness. I'm going to burn it onto disk then and hopefully get to installing.

    Ok problem. I am trying to wipe the Windows 7 hard drive I have. I booted into the XP setup DVD, and on the second attempt, it said there were no other previous versions of Windows installed.

    So I found a spare L shape cable (for connecting the hard drive aswell as the Vista one) but nothing, in Vista it wasn't shown... so what can I do now?

    i think that you are better off using a live cd to delete your partitions
    you can actually also do it from 7 too...
    go to all the steps of installing until it says where to install it then choose advanced options then choose your disk then click on delete partition (should have an eraser icon)...

    Well I got the new disk and have tried to install Windows 7. Got to the copying files, and then went to restart as normal, but didn't boot. I tried again, with formatting where it installed to and then trying again and it did the same thing. I gave it a rest and then just booted into the hard drive... it said "Starting Windows" and had the copyright Microsoft at the bottom... then just came up with that "Windows Bootloader Error" and told me to repair.

    Any ideas, this is pretty much what happened last time, minus the smily face icon things. This really is bugging me. I have no time now but tomorrow i'll "repair" using the install disk and then try, but is there anything else I could be doing wrong?

    My ISO is 2.3GB, I wonder where the 400MB difference comes from...

    Anyway, jackdelamare, you could try Windows Recovery Environment (boot from DVD). It lets you do a Startup Repair. If that doesn't work out then you could try FixBoot or FixMbr in the command console.
