Random reboot during the win7 install

Hi

I have a fujtisu siemens laptop and I use XP home now.
I would like to use other OS but when I install it, the laptop is rebooting after having chosen to boot.

I tried to install XP pro but I couldnt... I choice the correct boot device (optical dvd) and when the blue screen show(initializing the installer) the laptop reboot

I thought my optical driver went wrong. My xp home is good therefore first i tried to install after when i logged on my xp home:
the win7 installer copy the neccesary files etc. and when it finished i had to restart tha laptop.
When the boot mgr showed I chose the windows 7 but after this it restarted...
i chose same and it restarted again...

I tried other fujitsu laptop but the problem is same

does anobody have any ide what is the wrong?

Please help me

Can you post your specs.

Where did you get your Win7 DVD from?

A very common issue is that your XP Home (if it came installed on the lappy) contains files necessary for the lappy (needed by the BIOS). This is a purposeful setup by the lappy maker. Your XP Pro disc (maybe retail version, maybe from a different lappy) does not contain the needed files.

There are ways around this and a couple of lengthy threads here that detail the issue. I'll see if I can remember where they are.

Boot the WIn7 DVD, press Shift F10 as it is booting up, which opens a Command Line, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK # (for Windows 7 disk)
clean
create partition primary
select partition 1
assign letter=c:
active
format
exit

Now boot the WIn7 DVD, select Install Now and Custom Install to the partition you have created.

When installation restarts do not choose any boot menu items at all, until it asks you for User input.

Try tapping Shift F10 while booting the DVD anyway to see if it works.

What do you mean it restarts? Does it start up Windows?

Are you getting a "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD" prompt?

Follow this exactly: Boot from CD - How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD - Boot to CD

While in BIOS setup, see if you can set SATA controller to AHCI, then try install. Next try IDE.

Also in BIOS check what version you have and compare it to latest BIOS version on the manufacturer's SUpport Downloads webpage for your model computer or mobo.

Did the DVD come with an Upgrade Kit for a Vista machine you bought?

If so, this will only sometimes work on another machine.

Are you sure it is Win7 DVD install media? Open or Explore the files on DVD and post back what they are.
