then i get a popup that asks if i want to utilize network connectivity in the background, i clicked yes and no still doesnt work,
What still doesn't work?
Why do you want to connect to the internet while your installing windows?
Are you booting to the disk or are you trying to run the disk while your already in Windows?? Boot to the install disk, then format the hdd (all of it, all partitions, etc), then install Windows.
