    I am having one heck of a time trying to install Windows 7. I know there's nothing wrong with the ISO I burnt, I booted it from the disc and it acts like it's installed. Then it restarts and says "Starting Services" and then I get a message saying "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click OK to restart the computer, and then restart the installation". I click on OK and the same thing happens all over again. I totally reformatted the drive before installing it, in case there was a conflict, because it happened even when doing a fresh install.

    Try installing Vista and then upgrading you will need to SP1 or else if you don't have that reinstall XP then try again, hopefully one of those 2 options will over write the error, the good news is once you are in it is all plain sailing.
