How did you create the DVD? You have to use a program like Imgburn (free)
to burn the DVD.

windows 7 rc 64

I used media player and I also used nero. The thing is I have downloaded windows 7 x86 a few times and that always worked. I would like to try 64 bit but can't get it to boot onto my drive.

Download ImgBurn (a free app) and try burning with that to a DVD+/-R.

If your download is good and you burn the ISO with ImgBurn, it should boot.

3. Does your system support x64. Not all CPUs support x64.
