My computer has been unable to boot to the Windows 7 installer for the past two days.
My boot order is correct
I have confirmed that the drive works (It runs a live CD of Ubuntu just fine).
I have checked that the disk works (it boots fine in another machine).
I have used this same disk on this computer before several
times before with successful outcomes.
My diagnostics come back successful as well.
I'm on a Dell Studio 1735 (from 2008).
I'm really at a lost as to why it's not booting to the DVD. I'm currently typing this from my Ubuntu partition; I don't have convenient access to a Windows machine at this point so any advice that caters to my situation would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate the time this community gives to help one-another out.
