Windows 7: Booting from DVD issue, "Reboot and select proper boot device".

Booting from DVD issue, "Reboot and select proper boot device".

Hi! I just burned a copy of the Windows 8 Developer Preview onto a DVD. I have created a partition for the new OS (because I don't want to install over Windows 7).

When Windows 7 is running and I pop in the DVD, the computer directly recognizes it as a runnable program. I'm also able to install Windows 8 when Windows is running.

But because I want to install it to another partition I need to boot from the DVD. But I can't. First it just ignores the DVD, and boots right into Windows 7. So I tried to force boot via BIOS. Then it just said "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected". Can someone please help me?


I have an ASUS N82J laptop, 4GB RAM, Nvidia GT335M, i3-350M processor, 500GB HDD.

Thank you in advance

im thinking it ignores the disc because the order you have for booting 7 is from hardrive first, if you press f1 or f8 or one of the f buttons at the black screen before 7 loads you will get the order of which to boot from first ,select disc and it should load the install screens .
maguscreed is correct of course ,pop over to eight forums and we can help you there.
