When you say you burned the win 7 dvd was it from an .iso file? did you burn just the .iso file maybe instead of burning it as a DVD image

i follow the link on this website, on how to burn the recovery cd, i believe it was from files to DVd, now i see a other missage , it said the file is possibly corrupt, the file header checksum does not match the computdd checksum

ok I think this maybe the problem. What burning software do you have so I can try and guide you through it? if you have no iso burning software you could try this http://www.freeisoburner.com/ free one to burn it. If you check the DVD you burnt before has it only got the iso file on it? also burn it at the slowest speed you can there have been isues with burning windows 7 at full speed and coruption

Ok, imma start everythgin over, SO the window repair disc right now, is on ISO files, and imma burn it at 2x speed, which is the slowest with a brand new cd, let see the results.
