I would suggest a Clean Install using this Tutorial.
Since you have DVD, you can skip making the USB Stick and start from this picture in the directions.
Read instruction in the tutorial starting from this picture.
After Complete Windows 7 Installation, Load ALL drivers BEFORE installing Updates.
Family Pack version of Windows 7
Probably will have to Activate using this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Setup/OOBE/MediaBootInstall to 0
Run AS Administrator from command prompt
Run activation again.
If NO GO then type in Slui 4 and tap enter.
Call MS at the number on the screen and use Automated Telephone Activation.
The answer to the last question is ONE.
Pretty sure we'll loose OP on this one as is too complicated of a procedure. :( :(
Ok guys, heres an update so far

any advice ?, will i try again
ps some update error codes
Yes I forgot I ask that last evening.
Sound like a hardware or compatibility problem but without doing hands on, I don't know.
Switch the Memory Modules Between Slots and ensure the the CPU Heat Sink is on Tight.
Then try the Clean Install again.
Hi Guys,rve just noticed that the windows 7 upgrage disk is to upgrage from Vista !!!!. Would that made any differenence to upgrading from XP ?
i dont know much about OS disks and what they contain
"system disc says it compatable with 7 ?" It might be compatable with Win7 but you should visit the mobo website and download "ALL" Win7 drivers.
When your install is complete install the drivers. Install the chipset driver first, then you can install the remainder of drivers.
Did you do a clean install or an upgrade from XP?
Don't understand your question
"do you think the type of upgrade disk will effect anything"
Are you using an upgrade disk or a full install disk?
sorry to be so no very clear
i brought a upgrage disk with 3 licences, but i was running 3 computers and all had vista so the shop said an upgrage disc for vista was the way to go. but i only upgraged 2 computers so far and the last one i dont use much and its left for games and general messing around with ( opening up case so people can see how computers work in a hands on way ( The Kids )) but it runs XP not vista so i was not sure if the upgrade disk i brouht to upgrade fro vista to win 7 will also work if i upgrade from XP to win 7
