Installing onto ubuntu 9.04

I just downloaded windows 7 beta using my sisters laptop and I put it onto a DVD-r and I put it into my desktop which is running Ubuntu 9.04 and restarted it and it took about a minute to try and boot from the disc but it just loads up ubuntu.

I really don't know what to do :/

You need to go into bios to force/enable booting from dvd. Its a different key combo on various machines. Often its f12. that should load the dvd if it is bootible.

Hope this helps

Hi Adnrw, and welcome to seven forums

when booting you should have the option on screen to boot into bios. Its sometimes f12, and then you can make the dvd as the number one boot device.

Thanks. c:

I can't see any options on screen.
When would it come up?
'cause it shows me three screens.

When booting the first screen where it says your computer mfr (like dell, hp, etc) there you can hit f-12. failing that when booting you can try hitting the "d" key it will sometimes force the boot from dvd.

That screen only stays there for a second or two.
I tried just repetidly pressing f12 when I restarted it and it did nothing.
Aslo hitting the "d" key does nothing
