    Hi,

    I finally finished downloading windows 7 from a Bulgarian tracker. The torrent had the x64 and x86 versions of both English and the Bulgarian language.

    I burnt it onto my re-writable DVD using nero and then start up the installation.

    I selected the language and the time and all that stuff and then clicked 'install now' but then it says something to the effect of 'no cd/dvd drivers found' and it says that I can insert the DVD or CD now and so...

    From googling the probs, I can see that it's a fairly common problem! :(

    Just to give you an idea of my specs:
    Intel Pentium 4 processor
    2GB DDR2 RAM
    Onboard VGA
    A PATA 80 Gig HDD (Don't have a lot of files on the PC, mostly on my external HDD, so the whole HDD is nearly free!)

    I currently have XP. Could anyone please help me out?

    Thanks!

    I'd copy the files to a flash drive or a folder in your WinXP and run the installation from within XP. Choose custom since you obviously can't upgrade XP. When you're installed, Win7 should find your CD/DVD Drive(s).

    Burnt it onto a blank dvd rather than a dvd-rw and got it to install perfectly...however, there are no win7 drivers for the onboard vga card as well as my monitor, so I had to revert to xp! :(

    It was gr8 while it lasted! :)
