    Did you use a cm74d2gb nightly? If not that is the problem.

    The official CM7 nightlies still boot off the same kernel that froyo ROMs do. these are the ones that you can find in ROM Manager.

    If you want CM7 and you want to stay on the kernel that GB uses then you need to download one of the unofficial nightlies from revnumbers.

    i just went to the nightlies and downloaded build 63 as all i saw were the different build numbers. when i click the regular cyanogen mod part on the rom manager all i get is a blank screen.

    Well you said that it didn't install so no need to uninstall it. You could delete the file from your SD card since you don't need it.

    Sorry not trying to confuse you. I thought you meant uninstall the cm7 nightly. Without the added detail you were talking about the ota I wasn't sure you meant that.

    The thread I linked you too has instructions on how to do it if you are on the ota already. I believe it was option 2 in the instructions. You do not need to sbf but I have never tried the option if already on the ota so I can't really comment on it.

    Its ok. Are you rooted?

    If so then you can download the nightly that requires the same kernel as gb and move it to your phone. After that you can install it with rom manager.

    The ones you need if you are on the ota are unofficial ones. So you can't download them directly from rom manager yet.

    You could go to the thread I linked you to. There is a link in that thread that you can download it.

    There is lots of info in that thread. Pretty much everything you will need to download or know is there or linked for you.
