Were you originally trying to install from within Windows? You can't do that to install a 64-bit system on 32-bit Windows - which would explain the error message.

You have to, as you have tried, boot from the DVD to install. I've no idea why the Windows 7 DVD won't boot on your PC. I can only think that that particular DVD drive and that particular DVD don't want to play; it happens. I have some DVDs that work fine on my laptop but throw up errors on my desktop.

Is this a genuine Microsoft DVD or a burned copy? It's not unusual to have problems with DVDs burned on a different computer.

it is a burned copy. is there anyway to create an iso to make it work with the dvd?

Where did the original come from? It should be an ISO file.

If you're current OS is running properly and you don't have more than 3GB of RAM then it may be wise to stay with your 32Bit OS.
