Satellite A205-S4607 Windows 7 Initial Install

I have a A205 laptop in which the harddrive gave out and could not be read so i ordered a new harddrive and installed it. The laptop was purchased with Windows Vista Home Premium, but the recovery disks were not included as I purchased the laptop from a Sam's Club. So, beings I was at a fresh start anyways, i decided to purchase Windows 7 Pro, since this website said the laptop is compatible. However, when i try to install Windows 7 from the CD, it never makes it through to completion. All of the documents on the website here refer to upgrading from previous OS or install, but i dont have a previous install as my harddrive is brand new. Am i missing something??? Please help Smiley Happy
