If it's a laptop & you're running it off the battery, plug the power cable into it. you should never attempt a Windows install on battery power.

Look, i have installed windows 7, and i want to install windows xp, but its not on cd, its on image. Now one day i open it up with daemon tools, just to make sure that is workin, and when its windows explorer open it up, i simply cannot click on Install Windows xp. You understand? When I was sure that it works, I would have burned the CD and start the installation on that way. I hope you understood me now. My english is bad.
