But when i install win 2000 professional everything goes fine and i am able to install it successfully. I tried changing the Hard drive and RAM but i get the same error. Pl help me rectify this problem!

    Has the disk been reformatted ? Sounds like Bad install disk ...Do you have a Recovery disk ?

    How long ago was that ? Sounds like your hard drive has Bad sectors on it, Have you run ANY kind of repair software Yet ? Some how it got corrupted...
    You might want to try another hard drive..(NEW) one...

    Thanks for your reply! I have somehow managed to get the solution for this, but it is not convincing even though i am able to Install win 7 on my desktop.I could install win 7 only after making changes in the BIOS.I had "enabled" SW single processor mode in BIOS, which is not recommended for a Pentium D processor as it degrades the performance. Can you please suggest me what could be the problem?

    Thanks in advance.
