I just got my Window 7 today, and I started my Window 7 installation this morning, I got it working the first time round. Window 7 installed and everything but I notice that I partition the Hard Drive too small, so I went back onto my Mac OS and started up Bootcamp and deleted my Window 7 so I can redo it. But I forgot to set my Main Disk to start up, so I was stuck in the boot up and unable to identify a disk, so I hold option and started it up and had to reformat my MAC OS because it didn't even show up the first time and changed the format from MAC OS Extended Journaled to MAC OS Extended (Case-sensitive, Journaled) and I got my MAC to reinstall.

So I switch the format back to default of MAC OS Extended Journaled (?) and then try to install Window 7 64 bit again, I got up as far as removing the ATIKMDAG.SYS and then rebooted and then I came to the setup window normally, but then a Window Install Error pop up, no numbers, simply says "installer cannot proceed because it restarted suddenly, or there is an error in the system" and I have tried this several times also trying to install the 32 bit.

Just now I deleted my Window 7 partition and reformatted my MAC OS HD and the current format my hard drive is on is MAC OS Extended Journaled. The problem I'm facing right now is that an error pops up before I can get into the entering the product key (Setup) and beyond. I have done it once but it won't work a second time. HELP PLEASE!
