    Hello!
    I have a problem with installing windows 7 on my pc.
    When i boot from dvd i get the "windows is loading files" and i get the win7 background but then nothing happens. Please help! Is it mayby becasue of an old mb driver? My disc is burnt on hi quality media and i burnt at a slow speed.

    calamocha do you have a USB drive bigger than 4GB? You could attempt to load Win7 from USB to eliminate DVD from the equation and to save time.
    If that doesnt work, i would save your key and re-download the file from Mr Gates because MSDNAA has sent out bad downloads recently. There are a few students this semester who have had successful downloads but the file is broken in some way or another. I had to re-download Visual Basic 10 for this reason.
