I have had problems installing on some systems because it turned out the DVD drive itself had problems. So now I made a windows 7 bootable install usb stick and install with that, not only is the USB faster than the dvd but it doesnt have the same problems :-)

Do you need a link on how to make a usb setup for Windows?

Hi maverrick

                 I think that you have not followed the correct procedure.
                   When you get the screen, you have to use advance drive options, and then delete the reserve partition and primary partition one by one and then click the installation button. This is the proper procedure to install fresh install over the existing one.
The Bottom line is "Check your hardware first if it supports the task you try".
