firstly thanks to AsAnAtheis​t for his post on these forums with post.

until i tried booting from the disc i had burnt..

i get
CD boot: cannot from cd - code 5
NTLDR is missing.

from further reading i read that Wind 7 does not support certain chipsets so it does not recognise it as a bootable media.
can anyone confirm this?

if this is the case then im in the brown stuff.

i have the student discounted download version of win 7 64bit and currently have win xp home 32bit
so i cant run the upgrade in windows as i get the " this is not a valid win32 application"

any one else have the same issue or found an answer to this problem?
i have spent the last 2 days scouring the net and have over 20 browser tabs of various info non of which pin points my problem.

try using vlite to slipstream drivers for your computer into the ISO. Not sure if it will work with windows 7 because its made for vista, but worth a try.
