What is happenign?
after the option to load bios i get a black screen with flashing underscore, looks like pc is trying to load dvd (dvd drive light is flashing) but nothing actually loads and after 30 sec it just loads up xp as normal.
when i go to my computer it shows the dvd drive as normal but no files (as if nothing is actually in the drive, it is working though have tried other cds and a dvd)

I can't get this to work
Make an iso image out of the DVD
Make a bootable installation USB stick and use it to install windows 7
not sure I can do this when the dvd is not recognized? don't i need to transfer the data from the dvd to the usb flashdrive?
