If it activated with the Product Key on the COA sticker it will not deactivate. Stop worrying.

Where did you get Win7? DId you burn the Disk yourself?

You made it as far as the drive-selection screen shown below?



You said there were five partitions and you chose the one named System to install upon? Did you check the size, as it might not have been large enough to install upon?

How long did the install proceed from that point? Did it fail with an error saying it needed drivers?

Either the problem is with the installer which is the case in 90% of the drivers-missing error, or you installed to a too-small partition.

I would confirm the ISO and burn another DVD using ImgBUrn at 4x speed. If this fails write to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in dropdown menu. Boot the DVD or flash stick using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key. At the drive selection screen choose the Drive options link shown in red box in screenshot above, then use the Delete button shown in red box below to Delete all partitions. Once all are deleted just click Next and the installer will create and format your install partition for you and start install.



Report back the answers to my questions and any results of the steps I have given.
