Win 7 RC Not Installing on Brand New Homebuilt Machine
So I just put together (i.e. about 4 hours ago closed up the case) a PC consisting of these parts:
Foxconn A7DA-S 3.0 AM3 790GX mobo XFX Radeon 4890 1Gb gpu AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2Ghz CPU 4Gb DDR3 Kingston RAM 500GB WD Caviar Black HD OCZ 600W 600MXSP PSU NZXT Guardian 921 case
Powered on, popped in my Windows 7 RC ISO disk that I burned, but when I got to the "Where do you want to install Windows 7" I chose my HD and then the next screen asked me to choose the drivers so that my hard drive could be accessed. There was then a drop down menu of my CD/DVD drive and a X:\ (???)
Not knowing what to do I went ahead any installed windows XP on the system. the C drive is currently formatting.
any ideas what's wrong? Do I need to have an OS installed first before I can upgrade to Win 7 RC?

quick update: so XP failed to partition the drive (at 99% no less )
