    well first things first you should probably pop in your win 7 rom and click the repair button which should fix any minor problems that might have happened during the original install

    Your hardware is to old and to slow! :D

    Check your BIOS settings, and load default settings, or even "safe" settings, and retry.
    Look for a BIOS update.
    Remove all PCI cards and other components that are not absolutely necessary for system start.
    Check all cables, disconnect and reconnect them
    Check RAM with memtest.

    Did you use an untouched ISO or original DVD? There are some bogus ISO's floating around that will cause problems.

    It's not "or" as an exclusive, like "either or", it's "or" as an inclusive, as in "one of these". :p

    Example: User names must contain letters or numbers.
    That means you can use letters, numbers or (inclusive) letters + numbers, not letters exclusively or (exclusive) numbers exclusively.

    Not quite the same, nice to see you decided to chime in with absolutely nothing to contribute.

    The untouched ISO's are MSDN releases and each one is specific to a version of windows, to access the other versions you delete the ei.cfg. The original DVD is exactly that, the retail DVD and now that you can buy them off of Ebay I included that in the question (available from guys selling their signature edition DVD's which are retail DVD's).

    EDIT: after reading TWIZ's response I should have left it at that, he is a much more adept smart @$$ than I.
