Help! Need to upgrade from RC
So I've been running windows 7 release candidate for some time, long past its expiry. I have gone out and bought a legitimate version but now it won't let me boot from the cd! I changed all the settings in my bios to only boot from cd and it somehow still loads from the harddrive? When i insert the cd if the laptops on it doesn't recognise the disk, but i know its not dodgy because i tryed it on my other computer with xp and seemed to work fine.
Could maybe have something to do with a 3rd party boot program i installed when i first got rc that got rid of the option of choosing which op i wanted to load when booting (even though i only had one). I can't seem to find that program anymore. What im getting to is would it be safe to just get a format prgram and wipe the hd partion its on then try load from scratch? Thanks
