W7 64Bit installation problem

Likes # 0

I have downloaded and installed the 32 Bit W7 OS on one PC. Liked it so much so thought I would try the 64Bit on another. I have spent most of today trying to get it to install on . It refuses to start the proces and the boot up screen sticks at the 'press any key to start installation' bit

I have tried 3 different downloads, checked that the PC is booting from the CD and ensured that the clean and empty hard drive is the target and the other 2 Hard drives on this PC are disabled but cannot fathom out what I am doing wrong. I can see the ISO file on the DVD but it will not install

I would like to wake up tomorrow and see the answer if anyone can suggest one please

Thanks and goodnight

Appreciate that james1981. But I don't think that was my problem as am sure I did try one or two times using the iso freeware. Whatever , the release date is only a few weeks away and I can wait out on that
