    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.

    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?
