  1. Hi :)

    WHICH Windows 7 disc are you using ??

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Ultimate 64 Bit!
  3. Sounds like the media may be defective.
  4. Its Possible, But The friend I borrowed it from says that it worked well before, so I don't know?
  5. Should I buy I new one? Or is there a fix?
  6. I think it's having trouble reading the disc.Do you have access to another install disc?
  7. I do not have another windows 7 Disc, but I am planning on seeing if my other friends Home Premium 64 Bit Works, But you think the disc is scratched? Another thing is Im reusing a DVD drive from my old computer, so it could be a problem?
  8. Possible yes,but sounds like bad media.
  9. Ok, I'll Be checking back tommorow or tuesday, because by then I'll test the new installation media, So hopefully this is in your email list =3.
  10. Keep me posted!
  11. If you get an error expanding files when installing Windows 7 then providing the install disk is good the fault is nearly ALWAYS due to problems with your memory.
  12. So I'll have to replace the RAM? Is there any way to assure that the RAM is messed up? The BIOS recognizes it also.
  13. And yes, it does fail at the 27% Part when it is expanding files.

    You should download and run memtest86 4.0a to test the memory, run for at least three passes.

  15. It can run in the default mode? How much space do I need on a USB drive to hold the program?

    It is easier to create a CD of memtest86 but if you want to make a USB version it only takes a couple of Megs of space on a USB drive.
