    Try creating a modified Win 7 DVD (with bootsector from Vista DVD) as mentioned in previous posts. I am quite sure this will solve your problem.

    I think this information is pretty important. This should be added to the Win 7 Repository. Opa? Are you reading this?

    Opa will add what he thinks is relevant. He's not failed yet to add important info.

    ok,
    the problem is resolved, i used magic iso maker and opened a vista SP2 iso, i deleted all files that were in and added all files from an extracted windows 7 iso.
    i saved the files as iso, and now i can boot on windows 7 DVD at startup.
    thanks for your help :)

    update : ah, it seems i made a mistake, the iso cannot find the file install.wim, i have to build another iso with the good parameters.

    i'm trying to continue the install with an unmodded windows 7 DVD, it works, but i have to fix the first iso i made, lol
    now i'm using 2 DVD to install windows 7, i'm too good hé hé ;-)
