    I was using 64bit version of Win7 and have a slic 2.1 for it. But i didnt liked 64bit and decided to install 32bit.

    I started with 32bit win7 dvd, pressed any key and installation started. It finished and restarted for the first time. I didnt press any key and it continued and said "Comleting installation". After that, i wrote my username, chose the network type, clock and passed the win7 key screen.

    Then, it restarted again wrote:

    Boot from cd:
    press any key to boot from cd or dvd.....

    then it stucked. Nothing more.

    I tried a lot of things, go to the bios changed the boot priorty to harddisk, ejected dvd, but it stucked again and again. Then i tried to press any key when it said. I could go to installation page again, did the same procedures. A new installiation has completed and it restarted 2nd time for the second installation. Again STUCKED...


    I wonder that, can it be from my bios slic? Do i have to flash the old bios? How can i finish my win7 32 bit installation.

    NOTE: Also, i tried 32bit vista installation, it didnt stuck and successfully finished loading windows after 2nd restart

    Is your Windows 7 32bit ISO an untouched version? It could be that you have a modified ISO that installs a loader, one thats not compatible with your system.

    Can you boot from DVD and select the recovery options? If you can then go to command prompt and issue the command bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS and any loader will be disabled on reboot. Thats my best guess anyway.

    thanks for your quick response firstly.
    i dont know clearly but i suppose it is not an untouched version cause when i passed the key screen, it creates a key and displays it at a cmd screen.
    Do u mean repair section while saying recovery options?

    if there were 1.000.000.000 thanks buttons, i would press all of them DAZ and alfawaves. You are great! I am looking for a solution for about 6 hours and my computer specialist friends are stucked also. They never seen a problem like this so they didnt do anything. You only write "bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS" and solved the problem.

    Thanks a lot, thanks mydigitallife
