Make sure when you reinstall, you delete ALL partitions & format to NTFS.

Here are some examples of why you delete all partitions.

".sorry about the spelling"
You should have spell check in English available as you are typing.

Right click on the error for the pop-up.

"yes its after the files load from the disc it is stopping"
Try again & tell me if you see the message > press any key to boot from cd.

It only shows for a few seconds.

"yes it did that the first time but now it just auto running it"
Ok, that's fine.

How many minutes does it get into the install?

"win7 64 bit'
Ok that's fine, it doesn't interfere with a clean install.

"and brings up that message"
What is that EXACT message please.

Maybe the CD needs cleaning.

a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent any harm to your computer.
if this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen
restart your computer .if this screen appears again follow these steps
but I cant do that because it has no os on it lol

It will only run if the other pc is identical.

What you can do is uncable the good (already has an operating system ) hard drive.

Cable up the drive ( no need to bolt it in, just let it sit loose ) to install XP & run the XP install to the point of deleting all the partitions, formatting to NTFS & then cancel the install.

Now put the drive back where you want it & see if you can finish the install.

Probably find most people, work on self, it never ends.

Be interesting to see if you were able to install.

If you were able to delete all the partitions & format to NTFS, that tells me the CD is OK.

Maybe your CD rom is faulty or needs a clean.

If after cleaning, you still can't install, try the rom from your other comp. No need to bolt it in, just rest it on top of some books.
