Windows 7: Installation stops

Installation stops

Hi,
I am running a dual core AMD 64 4000+ with a dual boot of windows XP and Linux. Unfortunately, my XP got virused so I deleted it yet still have some NTFS partitions. So the first partition is clean and I try to install Windows 7 it starts copying the files over but when the background appears for setup and the mouse cursor appears, it stops and nothing happens. I cannot ctrl-alt-del or anything.

I was hoping there was a simple solution and I am frustrated because there doesn't seem to be a md5 check to see if the image is corrupted.
Thanks very much for any help and I hope I don't have to keep burning disks like it seems many are doing. (It may have downloaded incorrectly, who knows).

Try deleting that partition entirely and let windows set the partition up (ie. dont create a new one, just point to the hard disk).

This might help Here
I can't get to the screen where I choose which partition to install on. If I do are you saying to install it on a partition other than the boot one?

Yes, or else shrink an existing partition and install Windows 7 into that free space as mentioned above.

Ok but I watched the video tutorial he posted and it gets to minute 3:25 after it has copied the files and stops. I guess my only option is to burn another and try?

Are you saying the video gets to 3:25 or the burning process?

Please be a bit more clear on what you are doing and what your problem is....

I just watched the video past it - try watching it now, it might have been a connection issue before.

Also, try cleaning out your cache so it DLs it fresh from the site.

OK but its my boot disk. Isn't that dangerous? What about Grub? Won't the MBR be affected?
