    Well thats what I got when I tried to use the latest windows loader.
    On my computer
    oS: Windows 7 x64 Ultimate Untouched.


    I also had a question...... Could the problem be caused because I have a recovery partion on my hard drive?

    If so Ill delete it and format my HD


    this is the pc I have: Dell Inspiron 531s(everything is OEM, Vista is the factory OS)

    I will apreciate your help because I need a solution quick ( Im going to be in a fps tournament tomorrow)

    is the os w7u oem also?
    if so you should be able to use the code on the side of the comp and activate it.
    but this would would only if the os that installed is the same version and sp1 or sp2 that would match the activation code.

    problem is the hidden partition or the bootsector of vista recovery.. (dell made custom bootsector for the menu Repair my computer)
    not sure what other fix is but to delete it all and do fresh 7 install.. or some trick in windows loader to tell it where to install the loader.

    easiest is in win7 delete all partitions so it says Unalocated only. then format and click next.

    I guess you dont want to conserve the previous os ?
    I will suggest, reinstalling w7u and then trying again the loader.
    just make that u delete previous partition (not ur back up).
    And make sure that your 100 mb partition is made, this could be the problem
