I am trying to install windows 7 pro on a desktop and keep getting this error before any gui interface starts. Then it says installing windows install files it takes forever ( 20mins) then crashes to this screen. I have tried a different CDrom no luck.

If the disk is not dirty or scratched I would suggest testing the RAM and HDD:


Or download UBCD fromn http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/. It contains both programs.

I wasn't able to load WIn 7 on the machine however I was able to ghost the bad drive and load Vista via the ghost image. This is a good enough solution for now.
