Could be a number of factors:

- If you have any non-essential devices such as an external hard disk or thumb drive attached to the laptop, disconnect them, they might be interfering with setup.

- You Windows 7 installation disc might be corrupt, try downloading another copy and burn to a blank DVD disc and use that to install Windows.

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) - X17-58997

Windows 7 Professional (x64) - X17-59186

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)* - X17-59465


ImgBurn - In addtion to supporting the creation of CD's from .ISO files,
it supports a wide range of other image file formats, and it's free.
(BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, MDS, NRG, PDI and ISO)

Note: Always use the slowest burn speed (4x or 2x) if offered a choice.

 

---------------------------------------

If the problem persist, try creating a bootable USB thumb drive and use that to install Windows 7 64 bit:

you will have to use a tool such as the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool (http://store.microsoft.com/Help/ISO-Tool)
This simple tool will help you convert the same image file into to a USB thumb drive. For installation purposes, you should get a thumb drive that’s at least 4 GBs in size to store the installation files. Browse to where the Windows 7 Image is stored, open it.

 

Select the USB device where you want to have the backup stored to for installation.

 

Once the USB device has been identified, click the Begin copying button.

 

And that’s it

I was trying to install using a USB drive, however the installation worked after i used the DVD Disc to setup. Removing the USB flash drive helped.
