    Try downloading the a new copy of the x64 ISO, then burn that to DVD at a very low speed, 2x or 4x for example.

    Are you able to get the 64-bit DVD to boot? You have to boot from the DVD and do a clean install.

    where did you download your ISO from? If it is from MS I would check the md5 checksums to make sure it is not corrupt. If you did not get it from MS I would redownload the ISO from Microsoft.

    awesome glad to hear that. I keep a 4gig thumb drive around for installing Windows off of, saves me time having to burn a new disk if one is corrupt. Now that 4gb thumb drives are like $10 USD there is really no reason to have a large thumb drive IMO. They are real convenient.
