This is better and easier solution.

You need Vista install DVD. Boot Vista Installation, choose Language press next and than press "Repair my computer". On next window u will have few options, choose "command promt". Remove Vista DVD and insert Windows 7 Install DVD. Navigate to DVD (for example d: or e:, depends on your drives setting, than go to folder sources (type "cd sources"), and type "setup". Installation will start shortly. Now just follow instructions

Good luck

I also used the Win 7 disk to load files into my regular system and it appeared to load without a problemAny information on this will be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance.



The problem isn't the dvd, the problem is your motherboard . I think you have am ASRock or MSI motherboard . I said that because i have an ASRock K7VT4A Pro and i had the same problem . The only solution for Windows 7 error code 5 is IMGBurn.rar , you have here a freware program and pictures with the instructions.good luck. for me works .

Boot Sectors

I had this problem as well and fixed it by changing the way I burned the ISO in imgburn. By default the number of boot sectors for the bootable file will be set at 4, Windows 7 requires 8 sectors. Change the number to 8, and burn the image at the slowest speed possible.

The problem could be that the disk is in Bootable UDF? Older drives & computers seem to have problems with this. Solution, use a program like Ultraiso and in the taskbar on the left it will tell whether it is Bootable UDF or Bootable CD/DVD, if it says Bootable UDF click on the red tick thingy and uncheck the UDF option. Now you can save it as a iso file and burn to disk.
I always use rewritables for this, just in case!!
Hope it works.
