    Hi, trying to install win 7 on gateway t-series but every time it says not enough space on disk or when I mount it says no drive detected. I set bios to boot from USB ir cd and never boots from win 7 media. Both are bootable copies too :eek:

    Edit: Never mind. Apparantly vista was being very troublesome so I kept at it and it finally booted to USB and installed and activated fine

    Now she's locked herself out of it...lol Now I gotta google how to get into windows with out messing with CMOS :eek:

    so which part of the dl do I use for win 7?

    Meaning does it burn to cd then boot from it. I didn't see any ISO's. I had to choose the 2nd link

    I ask cause it gave message I had to have 2000, 2003 something. I will look further

    Thank you

    ERD50 for Win 2K, XP, Server 2003 - x86

    ERD60 x86 for Vista 32 bit
    ERD60 x64 for Vista 64 bit

    ERD65 X86 for Win 7
    ERD65 x64 for Win 7

    When you unpack the archive there is a Documents folder any way when you install there is a media builder that makes your bootable cd/dvd
