I have the 32 bit ISO now. What should I attempt to do? I'll try it this weekend, I guess.

Burn it using ImgBurn at 4x speed with Verify.

Try booting the installer first to Custom install. If it fails, try running it from Vista.

Post back exact error message or fail point if it doesn't succeed.

Just saw in your specs Dual Monitors !

Did you have both connected when you have been trying to do the win7 installs ?

Have you read this Questions list in our install section ?

Ah yeah, I have dual monitors, but I tried it even with one monitor unplugged, no dice. And no, I have not read that.

Also: The monitors are VGA - > DVI.

Hey guys, so I tried to run the setup through PowerISO I figured I could just mount it. And that I could, however, when I get to the part where I choose my HD, it does not find it there. The hard drive is Serial ATA, and if I click load drivers, nothing pops up. The HD I'm using is Western Digital WD5000AAKS I think

You are using 32 bit Win7 ISO to mount and run in 32 bit Vista?

Try burning it at 4X using ImgBurn with Verify. Then try booting it and running from Vista as first a Custom install and then an Upgrade install.

Next try shrinking Vista partition in Disk Management to create a second partition to test install Win7 32 bit from Vista, and from boot.

Report back results.

I'm mounting it because my computer was not booting from DVD's or USB's. Is there something wrong with having a SATA hard drive? I did read that some people had problems with it, but I was unable to find the driver. When I went to WD's site, they didn't even have drivers.

It isn't the HD exactly, but the SATA controller driver (which drives the HD) which absence can make a HD not appear in installer. However, Win7 installer should be driver complete for all SATA drivers - it is XP which is becoming outdated with the newer SATA drivers.

I've tried multiple times, the past 5 pages of this thread were basically how my computer would hang and not boot from any bootable media. I'm rather sure mounting is my only way out of this.
