Windows 7: And then the screen goes black....

During boot if I press 'ESC' I get the option to select a drive/place to boot from. I tried the DVD/CD option with no luck - it's not that clear though. I've pressed the option to get me into the generic menu upon boot and there's no other options.

I played the game again for a few hours and no issues. I just hope it's resolved itself!

In order to have the cd burnt corrects I'm assuming if you look at it you should just have the two files 'BOOT' and 'memtest' as showing?

I followed the instructions but when it comes to burning the files the instructions aren't idiot proof (for me!). It says for you to extract the win file to the desktop (done) and then burn that on the cd. I've done that on one cd (which didn't work). I then thought that perhaps I needed to burn the two individual files onto the cd (by opening the generic boot file in the download). Did that too, with no result.

It could do with some pics as obviously something isn't working. I played Footy Manager a good while yesterday and no issues there so I'm doing the noob thing and hoping it has gone away as I don't have the time (or cds) to keep burning away. There's obviously something I'm doing wrong.

Sorry about that but thanks again for the help - this forum has been very good to me!

Extract it in your dekstop is just one thing inside,the ISO image,burn it in cd,restart,boot from the cd.
