    After downloading the ISO file it passed the hash check. Then I burned it and made my installation DVD for Windows 7 Ultima RTM. When I try to install it I get to about 20% complete then I get an error box saying that there are missing files. I tried both + and - DVD discs and still get the same error box. I thought I had a bad DVD burner, so I went and bought a new one - still does not work. I can still go back and install Windows Vista DVD. I did this about 20 times in two days. Any help would be very much appreciated. :eek:

    Did you try to burn at a lower speed?

    What are you using to burn the DVD, try imgburn.

    Still Trying

    Burned at 16X and 8X using ultra iso. I used this before and it always worked. I used this same procedure before and made a DVD and used it on my desktop and a laptop. But the other day I decided to do a clean install on my desktop. That's when I first got that dialogue box at about 20%. I looked at my DVD and saw bad scratches, so I decided to make a new DVD using the same method I used to make the first DVD (that worked). Now nothing works!!

    Update 10-30-2009, I have tried all the recommendations from your replies and still no luck. I have downloaded a new iso file and it passed the hash check then I burn a DVD at 4X like before it did not work. So then I tried burning to a USB flash drive and that did not work. I all so checked my memeory and it passed. Any new ideas? Thanks for the Help

    Ultra ISO is great but everytime I have tried to use it to burn the disk it made a coaster for me. Try another utility. I use imgburn and Ultra ISO for about 90% of my burning and imaging needs with good results. Let us know if you get it figured out.

    I also suggest Imgburn. Simple, easy and it does a great job on everything I've ever burned. 0 problems from this program. You could try the evaluation of Nero but Nero is so damn bloated these days it takes forever to download and even longer to install. To hell with that infested bloatware of a program :p

    The above are very good softwares, but if you still have problems, instead of trying different combinations of discs, software and speed, you should stick to your default burning software come with you dvd rom - usually free from manufacturers. Use a good dvd disc and burn in low speed not faster than 12X. If you still have problems, you should have the reason to doubt your download may have problems that you should download from another source again.:)

    He says the checksums are correct, then his download has to be good.

    If you cannot also install (hangs at 20%) from a flashdrive, then u must have a hardware issue.

    Or maybe as someone else mentioned, you are trying an upgrade from Vista.

    Are you booting from the flashdrive/DVD ??? or not.

    Still No Luck

    First off I want to thank everyone that replied to this situation. I have come to the conclusion that it must be a hardware problem, either the motherboard or memory. The only version of windows I can install is my old 32 bit windows vista. I've been trying to install 64 bit ultima. I bought a 64 bit home premium at Best Buy and to my surprise it also had the same problem. So it is happening to both original DVD and the ones I burned. That's why I now think it's hardware. I'm taking a few days break from this!! Again, thanks for the help.

    Your processor (CPU) is probably not x64 capable.

    Have you tried the x86 Version of 7??

    If not, give that a whirl.

    If you have =< 3GB RAM, then x86 (32bit) is all you need anyways.

    Let us know.

    dualcores are 64bit capable, so yes. graphics seem a little low, but it's possible.

    @ nuttybuddy

    can you specify the cpu type and model ?

    CSI can be right. Maybe your cpu isn't 64bit capable

    My specs

    CPU Intel DUO E8500
    Motherboard EVGA Nforce680i sli
    Memory OCZ PLATINUM 4GB
    Graphic Card e-GeForce GTS 260

    This all started after I had the 64 bit win7 RTM install and working but I decided to do a clean install. Was this a case of if it works don't fix it. I tried both 32 bit and 64 bit Microsoft original Home Premium win7 DVDs
    and no luck. The only OS that will install is Microsoft original Windows Vista 32bit DVD. This just doesn't make sense. I have burned both ISO 32 bit and 64 bit to DVD and a USB Flash Drive with the some results.
