trying to install window 7 on a lenovo thinkpad e425 laptop, but i keep getting the command prompt coming up with " x:\windows\system 32> "

and it is not moving from there; like it is waiting for me to type in something before it can proceed. Any help will be greatly appreciated....

Are you doing a re-install or a clean install?

Exactly what steps are you taking for this install effort?

 

I don't understand how the command prompt enters into any install effort...with the possible exception of trying to restore to factory defaults.

If you are doing a clean install, you can boot it from CD/DVD and follow the steps?
