when you boot, try tapping f8 until you get the bios boot manager screen.
Select your win 7 drive and press enter to boot from it.

If it does not boot, the install is not creating an MBR on the drive you installed to.

Can you boot your DVD in any other machine?

Have you looked around in your bios for something like allow other versions of os's to load on this machine. or something like that. I did that on an old win 98 machine so I could load win 2000 but that was long ago. Why it would load x86 and not x64 is sure a head scratcher. Good luck to you.
Rumor has it leak coming soon maybe work for you?

Iron, I think you should disconnect your vista drive (Remove all cables) and leave only the empty drive to install win 7 on.

boot your system and immediately start tapping f8 to get to bios boot manager and select your DVD Drive (I you put the DVD in) and see if it will boot.

If the DVD does not boot then you should take that DVD to another machine and see if it will boot there.

If the DVD does not boot on any machine, then the DVD is no good.

If the DVD boots on your machine, you should be able to complete the install and get a bootable Hard drive. If it installs, remove the DVD, do not connect other drive, and see if it will boot from your newly created hard drive.

If it boots, you are good to go. If it doesn't then there is another issue.

Please post back

I tried the f8 with only the 1 drive pluged into the motherboard and no go. I have another computer but it is not 64 capable.

Don't worry about that for now, just see if the DVD boots.

you are correct - it is not bootable. Have you tried Imgburn? Are you using a DVD+/-R or a DVD RW?

I have tried imageburn on a very slow speed on a dvd+r. I just tried loading vista 32 bit that I purchased and it worked so it must be my burn or is it that I need 64 bit drivers or are they supposed to be included in the dvd.

Research on web says " the e8400 CPU says it is not x64 compatible." on some mobo's.
I see it say x64 ready on your pic might be special thing you need to do...
tried F6 andload the SATA drivers if you use Sata HDDs or
RAID drivers if you use Raid HDs. since x86 and x64 drivers are not the same.

Or wait 2 or 3 days and try 7127 Pre-RTM version - being leaked tonite. (rumors from Russia, china, and several US sites.)
