Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7100 RC x86/Windows XP SP3 x86 (Dual Boot)

Best help i can give you is this.Download an official copy of 7 and not something someone has completely messed with.And FYI it cannot be both Beta and RC at the same time.You have a heavily modified BETA build.

i see you have downloaded a "Black edition" and some of them sometimes has some bugs, ive downloaded an xp once and it really f***** up big time, keept getting error and i could not even open my freakin internet! my advice would be to download a REAL version of windows 7 (I recommend build 7068 btw.) which is not a black ed.
