    I'm in a similar situation as this guy:
    http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/1008546-how-replace-vista-full-windows.html

    except when I boot up my disk, I only get to the 2nd step:

    2) Progress Bar:
    The next screen is a more graphical progress bar indicating Windows 7 is still working in the background.

    it wont go past this screen.

    The same thing happens when I boot it up normally(without the disk for windows 7 home premium), only with the disk in it has the windows 7 rather than the vista look.

    Does anyone know what is causing this problem?

    What I was told to do was change the order of the boot sequence under BIOS settings. I placed Internal CD/ROM before my notebook hard drive. I'm not very good with computers, but this is what I was told, and it did work. :)
