    Hello,

    I am having trouble installing Windows 7 (currently using XP). I am booting off from the CD and it passes the "Loading Windows Files" (with the gray bar) and also passes the "Starting Windows" black screen with the logo. But after that, only the blue screen background pops up. The "Install Windows" screen for me to select languages does not pop up. After a minute, the disc just stops spinning. I am getting a sense that it would not load after countless times of restarting my computer to see if it does. I just bought the Windows 7 Home Premium from Amazon two days ago.

    Any ideas on what the problem might be?

    Thank you

    The dl told me it was compatible but it still wouldn't work. I will try to see if it will run on my friend's comp....but I'm giving Microsoft the benefit of the doubt cuz it is pretty hard to mess up on an expensive installation DVD...

    I had the same problem installing Win7 on a 1-year-old Gigabyte board and a fresh hard drive. Had to upgrade the bios, then everything worked as normal. Try that.
