only thought that comes to mind is to ask what version are you installing (32 or 64bit versions)?

Any builds after 7100 are leaks and unauthorised releases.
Plus many of them that come off the P2P networks come bombed with trojan horses. Therefore please don't download them from anywhere but Microsoft.

The only releases of Windows 7 from Microsoft are build 7000 (the Beta, which expires 1st August) and build 7100 (the release candidate, expiring next June). Nothing else is an official release.

hmmmm have not tried the forums there but my main issue now is just trying to get the virtual machine to find my real monitor instead of using the virtual one so I can see the visual effects that come with windows 7 probably same as vista ultimate but I still wanna try them out
