Sound like issues with your media. Did you burn an ISO and if so what speed? If you are POSITIVE about your media's integrity, you could try installing with a USB DVD Drive or USB stick.

I burned an ISO image at 4x with UltraIso..

Can also be a broken ISO, could need to redownload it and verify its checksum.

Are you still running the RC version of Windows 7?

Or is it a purchased disk with both 32-bit and 64-bit editions?
