If you are sure your DVD copy is OK, check your hardware compatability!!!
What he said + check your ISO that you're burning onto the DVD if your DVD comes up corrupt. If you have a 4GB USB flash drive you can install windows from there
DVD copy is good, hardware compatability good. run the check for compatability
your hardware spec . IDE or SATA hard dsk / motherboard etc.
I have an ASUS MB will not install with IDE / SATA combo !
sata Intel Desktop Board DP45SG
If you are sure your dvd data and dvd drive are 100% working,Update your mb with latest BIOS from vendor site and reinstall OS again.

Try the following tips. Might work for you.
Disable all onboard devices like audio, lan before installation. Enable them later on.
Install with single stick of ram if you have more than one. Put the others after installation.
If it still gets stuck, eject the disc and reinstert. It will display an error message but just click proceed/continue.
Worked for me.
When does the screen go black? When it's still copying files or when it already rebooted and says finalizing installation? Cause when its "finalizing installation" the setup also installs the right video driver and maybe that goes wrong
If anyone has tried the updated source files I'd be interested to know how they turned out and if anyone noticed any differences in speed etc, or whether they've had success whereas before they hadn't etc.
rebooted and says finalizing installation that when it goes black. how can i fix that
Sounds like a corrupted installation, and your DVD may have some missing/corrupted files. Try to burn a new DVD with another ISO and reinstall.
You may think your DVD is ok, but some files may be corrupted and Windows Setup is copying those files that don't work. It happened with me when I installed Vista three years ago.
this is the 2nd disk, one a Friend at work give me his that work on his, but not my. made me one and the something
Possibility - corrupted ram ? If you have 4 gig ram take out 1 and see if it works(or use the other stick as necessary) ?
Use Win7 Boot CD
Check Your SDRAM or DDRam~
Or Your Hard disk partition error
Do you have the floopy disk enabled in the bios but do not have one installed - I believe this will cause a very long delay in install process.
