offical not sure, this was the last site.....  http://www.softpedia.com/dyn-postdownload.php?p=118183&t=0&i=8 ~ Agcs

That's actually a source that pulls from Digital River, Microsoft's official retail download partner, so it's official.

as for different media, making USB now, not sure how to slow the burn down using the offical windows USB\DVD download tool for burning ISO ~ Agcs

My recommendation applies to burning an ISO image to an optical DVD-R.  If you are installing the ISO image on a USB drive, it doesn't apply.

We need more details on this,

1- Where did you download the ISO from ?
2- What's your PC Specs?
3- Did you totally format the PC before you start installing ?
4- Have you run a test for your Rams?
5- Did you run Disk check ?

I would run a memory test and hard drive test to see if that is your issue.

I ran memory test on first set of chips no problem. As for the hard drive having problems, why would windows vista install?

"ok I downloaded it from 6 different site" ~ Agcs

You actually downloaded an official Microsoft Windows ISO image from six different sites?  Which ones?

Have you tried burning it to a different brand of DVD media, and also burning it at the slowest possible speed?

When installing Windows 7, Delete all the available partitions and re-create them and make sure that windows asks you to create the separate 100 MB partition for cache.

Windows install files randomly on different sectors of your HDD and sometimes the files get copied to a corrupted sector so I would do a full benchmark for the HDD to make sure there's no bad sector in case it didn't install after you re-partition it.

btw, it's important to know your PC specs.

I understand what you saying, it does not get to the make partition spot in the installation, it dows not get to the sopt to select to install, it is all on a dos looking screen.
I have tried different HDD
Dell inspiron intle core duo 3.2
specs 2GB MEM 320GB HDD

Why not download from Microsoft rather than a 3rd party site?

You can install your CD key before the expiration period ends for the appropriate version.

Run5k,  I'm trying USB because nothing else has worked.

Why do offical restoration disk work, but not ISO burn images?
I was able to use a Vista32 & a win 7 64 bit disk and get to the create partition, but the ISO WIN 7 32 won't install or get to the create partition.

is this what your talking about, the burn speed is to fast

thanks the USB worked , I'm thinking the speed of the burn was the problem for the laptop DVD player.
Thank you all for you help.

Glad to help.

Based upon what you described, I have seen this scenario before.  It is typically either the brand of DVD-R media itself, or the fast speed that the ISO image was originally burned.
