That would be after it has copied all the files, so scratched disk is doubtful.


Try with one stick of RAM installed.

It's not that its could be faulty ram, it's that I've seen 32 bit windows installs go wrong with 4GB or more of ram (you didnt mention how much ram is in the system)

Have you tried installing it from a USB thumb drive?

I remember that step taking a long time. Maybe just wait it out?

W7 always ran fine for me when installing it.
Its even sweeter when installing it from a USB flash drive.
