Can't install windows at all

#1
I'm having trouble I replaced my motherboard installed windows vista basic everything worked fine until I attempted to install windows 7 home 32 from a usb. It installed more than once and would only boot from the recovery partion and it worked fine then I tried to reinstall it to the c partion etc and nowy hard drive is empty and I can't even install the vista again. I hAve no idea what to do

I'm currently at the point where I start the vista install gets to the update install stops and says "can't install registry data in the installation "

Are you performing/selecting a custom install or the upgrade install option? If you have a legal copy of windows and if you have a legal product key, then I suggest to change the boot order to boot from removable device in the BIOS and then select custom install when you reach that screen. In there it will allow you to select what drive to install it on...and to format that selected drive and perform a clean install.
