The problem is that it seems nothing is executing when the CD is executed and it just goes right to the currently installed OS. Is there something i am doing wrong here? I used the standard windows burner, is there something i need to click to make the CD executable?
First you cant "upgrade" from 32bit to 64. You need to do a clean install.
Second you dont extract files then burn to dvd you take the ISO file and burn it to dvd.
