ummm, where did you d/load it from because microsoft has delayed the release due to server overload.

I'm guessing you don't have a key, right?

Did you d/load either of these?

it has nothing to do with a key, im a msdn subscriber and i downloaded it earlier today before that message you posted.. if you read the error.. winstall not found and OSIMage could nto be booted..and a bunch of other crap, and windows 7 beta was released, just shut down shortly because of mass amount of people, and yes i do have a key.

BOTH of those are not the actual dvd, because its not named that at all.

GB1CULXFRE_EN_DVD that is the actual dvd name. and i downloaded the x64 version.

mmmmmmmmm OK, if you're sure you have the correct d/load then all I can suggest is to try reinstalling it.

Funny that the d/loads are listed on Technet as I posted them.

I have a friend who installed this. I took a quick look at it. It looks like Vista with a little more features and less resource usage.

Well the fact that it is erroring on the ATA/ATAPI drivers says it is something to do with your disc drive possibly.

Are you doing a clean install, dual booting, or doing a virtual machine?
