    Bought Dell Optiplex wiped hard drive. Got the wrong version and installed it, W7 Home Premium x86 or I guess it's the 32 bit version. Used windows loader, worked brilliantly, first time I've ever used it. Got the 64 bit version on USB drive and now it hangs when I try to boot/install fresh windows 64 bit version. WTF am I doing wrong and what should I do to remedy it. THanks

    Ok, you need to use Windows 7 x86, you can not install x64 for reason if these CPU does not support x64 bit.. Check see the bios if say x64 bit support or not?. if not, then you need 32 bit version of Windows 7..
